Welcome to MedVadis

Happy New Year from all of us at MedVadis Research!

Hard to believe that it is that time of year again.  Out with the old, in with the new! 

Last year certainly presented itself with many challenges, many of which are still with us.  These challenges can be daunting to say the least.  When we are presented with difficult times, it is not uncommon to feel stress and anxiety, which can often times aggravate a chronic pain condition. 

This can affect us in many ways.  Migraine suffers may notice an increase in the intensity or frequency of a headache, back or knee pain suffers can experience flares of pain to the point that it will interfere with their ability to perform everyday activities.  People who suffer from diabetic neuropathy (pain in the feet) may experience the particularly difficult challenge of weight gain due to isolation and inactivity because of the pandemic. 

MedVadis Research is currently looking for qualified individuals to participate in a research study.
Studies include:
  • Adult migraine  (18 years or older)
  • Pediatric migraine (6-17 years of age)
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Chronic knee pain (40 years or older)
  • Painful feet from neuropathy

 Immediate appointments are available.

All study-related care provided at no cost.  Health insurance is not required.

You may be compensated for your time and travel.  Compensation can range between $75 and $175 per office visit, depending on the study, with the potential for bonus.

If you are interested in finding out if you qualify for one of our studies, simply call or text me anytime at 617-875-0962 and let me know a good day and time that will work for you for us to do a quick phone prescreening. 

Yours in health,

Dr. Don Counihan
