FAQ's

What is infusion therapy?

Infusion therapy is a method of administering liquid medication through a catheter or needle. Although infusions are most commonly administered intravenously, or directly into a vein in the arm, some infusions are administered as injections into a muscle (intramuscular) or underneath the skin (subcutaneous). The purpose of infusion therapy is to provide a more concentrated, effective treatment for patients with complex, chronic conditions who did not have success with oral medications. ​A patient will be closely monitored by an on-site physician or nurse during their first infusion to determine the rate of infusion that they can tolerate.

What is a biologic?

Biologics are a class of pharmaceutical drugs that are produced from or contain components of living organisms. They can include natural elements such as proteins, blood, tissues, cells, hormones, genes, or antibodies. Biologic drugs are some of the most effective, cutting-edge medical treatments available today, especially in treating patients with severe and rare chronic autoimmune, allergy, and inflammatory disorders. All of our infusions and injections are biologics.
