Antibiotics Infusion Therapy

Because We Care

We offer infusion services of intravenous medications and antibiotics to our out-patients. Patients come to the physician office-based Infusion Center as an alternative to receiving intravenous therapy in the hospital.  At each visit patients receive intravenous medications and they are monitored by the NP to ensure the success of the treatment. The infusion center contains private, curtained area that is equipped with a comfortable recliner lounge chair, TV with live streaming, snacks and beverages. The center provides privacy while allowing the nurse to observe each patient individually.

Advantages

Intravenous (IV) antibiotics are some of the more important treatment options regarding therapy. The list below is not complete but represents the most common antibiotics we dispense.
