About Okanagan Clinical Trials

At Okanagan Clinical Trials, we specialize in conducting research studies for the pharmaceutical industry. In the 12 years we've been in operation, we have studied many different illnesses. Some of these include: depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, Parkinson's disease, obesity, headache, diabetes, pre-menstrual dysphoria, post herpetic neuralgia, fibromyalgia, pain, Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, insomnia, Celiac disease, urinary incontinence and dry eyes.

In Kelowna we also provide treatment for ADHD, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety disorders.

In all cases, our goal is to provide a positive experience for the many patients who volunteer to participate in our trials or come to us for treatment. We go out of our way to make sure our facility is comfortable and welcoming. We know that success often lies in the little things. That is why at Okanagan Clinical Trials, we make sure patients aren't kept waiting for appointment times, but are seen quickly and given time to ask questions and address concerns.

Mission Statement

To achieve excellence in both the conduct of clinical trials for our pharmaceutical industry clients and in the provision of compassionate and ethical care to our patients.
