Jay Rubin, MD has retired from practicing neurology after providing care in Florida since 1986. NeuroHealth, Inc. is no longer accepting patients.

Synexus is a site service offered by Accelerated Enrollment Solutions, a business unit of Pharmaceutical Product Development (PPD). AES offers combined and individual solutions capable of meeting a sponsorís strategic needs for clinical trial acceleration.
Synexus Clinical Research offers many opportunities for people to participate in clinical research in the study of many neurological, mental health and other medical illnesses. The decision to become involved in clinical research is often based on the desire to contribute to scientific knowledge, the attempt to improve or prevent progression of disease, and the additional medical information and support received. Furthermore, we seek mutually beneficial relationships with medical providers so more patients may gain access to the finest clinical research without providers having to devote the time and resources managing the study.
Dr. Rubin is convinced there has never been a better time for patients to participate in clinical research. In addition, services are provided by an organization dedicated to offering cutting-edge technology, supervision, advancements in medical sciences, and support to participants and their caregivers without any expense or need for medical insurance.

Such trials have contributed to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of many important medications. One of Dr. Rubin's key objectives is the continuation of exceptional communication and mentorship of local physicians and other providers, so more patients can find opportunities to participate in national and international clinical trials at the local level.
