Conducting Clinical Trials Since 2005
Velocity Clinical Research, Hallandale Beach was founded in 2005 as MD Clinical, an independent dedicated research center, by two board-certified neurologists, Dr. Beth Safirstein and Dr. Kerri Wilks. The center focuses on clinical trials for neurology and psychiatry indications, including Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory impairment conditions, major and bipolar depression, Parkinson’s Disease and migraine. A wide range of Sleep Disorder studies, including primary insomnia and Circadian Rhythm Disorders are conducted in a fully equipped Sleep Laboratory. In addition, Hallandale Beach has a dedicated and secured Phase I Unit.
A bi-lingual research team recruits and enrolls large numbers of Latinx study participants. By developing positive relationships and understanding family interactions in this demographic, Hallandale Beach more easily recruits elderly and other sub-populations of participants.
Accessible to several major highways, this ADA compliant facility serves Miami and other South Florida areas. With more than 9500 square-feet of dedicated research space, they can efficiently and effectively conduct multiple concurrent studies. All trials are performed in accordance with ICH and FDA guidelines, and in compliance with GCP.
The Velocity Hallandale Beach team is committed to being a resource for study volunteers, to providing the highest quality of patient care with compassion and kindness and to advancing medicine though research. By becoming part of the Velocity Clinical Research organization in 2018, they added new efficiencies and integration to their already comprehensive approaches to conducting clinical trials.
