Legacy Pediatrics Research

Ear Immunity StudyMission Statement

Legacy Pediatrics does office-based research to contribute to the evidence base of Pediatric medicine which helps our patients and, hopefully, all children, adolescents and young adults.

These days the buzzword in the medical field is “Evidence-Based Medicine”. What that means in plain language is to make diagnoses and recommend treatment based on research that shows evidence to prove it is the right thing to do.

At Legacy Pediatrics, we have always done office-based research to provide the evidence for “evidence-based medicine” in Pediatrics. Legacy’s patients and families have contributed greatly so that better decisions can be made about the diagnosis and treatment of common outpatient pediatric illnesses.

We pursue office-based research because it benefits our patients.

Patient Logan Smiles

Since Legacy Pediatrics was founded, we conducted research on the diagnosis, cause, and treatment of ear infections in young children. The results of our studies were incorporated into the national guidelines and changed the way practitioners diagnose and treat ear infections in young children. Our patients were the first to benefit from those changes!!!

On to the next chapter

Legacy Research is partnering with Rochester Clinical Research to undertake pediatric clinical research projects. We are very excited to be working with a talented and dedicated group to help further the evidence base in pediatric medicine. Check out the ‘Active Studies’ Tab for details about current and upcoming studies.

If you are interested in having your child participate in either of these studies, please call and we will be happy to answer questions and see if your child is eligible for either study.
