MD Assist was started by Suzanne Parisian, M.D., as a "MD" or physician FDA & medical regulatory consulting
firm. It was formed in August 1995, after she left FDA as a Chief Medical Officer and FDA Staff College Clinical
Trial Instructor, and Lt. Commander in the US Public Health Service.

Dr. Parisian envisioned a consulting firm that not only would "consult" on FDA regulatory and medical matters but
that would also be able to "teach" its clients and the public about FDA's history of regulation of medical products
in the United States.
