About Us

At Clinical Research Prime we are always on the lookout for two things: 1) patients who could benefit from our studies and 2) new studies that could provide additional treatment options for patients. As a volunteer in one of our studies, you would receive all treatments and medical care related to the trial at no cost. If you would like to learn more, please see our upcoming and current studies.

Our Principal Investigator (PI)

Jeffrey B. Baker, MD

Dr. Jeffrey Baker is an obstetrician gynecologist (OB/GYN) that has worked in Idaho Falls for nearly the last 30 years. Dr. Baker has performed clinical research for the past 20 years and has been involved in over 100 clinical studies including Phase I, II, III, and IV studies. Dr. Baker has been the high enroller in many studies in women’s health, and he has successfully recruited for general trials such as obesity, constipation, and vaccines.

Dr. Baker currently sees women’s health care patients as well as primary care patients in his new integrative and functional medicine clinic, The Healing Sanctuary. Dr. Baker enjoys contributing to new treatments in medicine and being able to offer these new treatments at no cost to patients who choose to participate. “I feel like participating in clinical research as a primary investigator opens up additional options for better, more individualized care for my patients and for the Idaho Falls region.”—Dr. Baker
