Effective Treatment – and Personalized Care

  • Anemia & Iron deficiency
  • Asthma and Allergies
  • Autoimmune Diseases like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis or Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cancer (All types both Hematological & Oncological)
  • Dehydration and Electrolyte Imbalances
  • Gastrointestinal issues like Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, or Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Immunodeficiencies
  • Osteoporosis

Other services include transfusion of blood products, IV antibiotics, chemotherapy, therapeutic injections and phlebotomy, and IV infusion of steroids, iron, WinRho and Lasix.  

All infusion services require a doctor’s order. We’ll work with you and your physician to obtain an order if necessary. For more information or to see if your infusion therapy is covered by insurance, call (423) 495-6087.
