Clinical Research

About Clinical Research

GAP offers in-house research as a treatment option to patients who qualify.

Research offers many benefits, such as:

  • Study-related care at no cost
  • Financial compensation for study activity
  • Contributing to the development of new medicines, medical devices, and vaccines that one day may positively impact the health of millions.

GAP may periodically reach out to patients who we believe may qualify for open studies. 

Our knowledgeable and experienced research coordinator will guide you through the qualification process. If you are a potential study candidate, you will have an on-site visit with our study coordinator and/or GAP physician for health assessments, physical exams, laboratory tests, or other procedures as required by the study protocol. As always, the health and safety of our patients remains a top priority.

If you are interested in learning more about our in-house study opportunities, please reach out to our Clinical Research Coordinator at (336) 779-1266 or discuss open opportunities with your GAP physician at your next visit. You may also follow us on social media to learn about available studies and study-specific information.

I live in Hickory and was going to gastroenterologist associates of Hickory. Horrible experience to say the least. I would show up at appointment and then they would send me a no-show and try to charge me for it. Then I was referred to gastroenterology Associates of the Piedmont of Winston Salem. Probably the best Doctor visit that I’ve had in my life. The staff was very professional they were very efficient . Dr. Brian Smith was very professional and very personable. Took the time to listen and talk about my condition very thorough. I was in and out of his office within an hour. Definitely deserves more than a five star rating.
