What Is Infusion Therapy?
Some gastrointestinal diseases like Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis require that you receive medication intravenously from time to time. This is carried out through intravenous infusion in an infusion center.
We provide comprehensive ambulatory infusion services in the comfort and privacy of a physician’s office. This allows for patients to receive uninterrupted quality service in a caring environment with professionals who are familiar with their medical history.
In many cases, we are able to reduce the duration of hospitalization, and in some cases, we can eliminate hospitalization entirely. Coming to our office infusion center instead of an off-site facility gives patients an opportunity to convey concerns, changes or improvements in their care to our nurses, allowing us to uphold our goal of getting them back on the road to good health as soon as possible.
We have several dedicated centralized infusion center locations throughout Texas, making infusion therapy care convenient for patients.
