The term "infusion" or “infusion therapy” is a service involving the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the vein of a patient. This service is also known as intravenous or IV infusion. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable methods of medication administration are typically utilized if oral/pill medications are insufficient, unavailable, or inappropriate. Several of the latest medications are derived or made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be consumed via the mouth, like a pill, because they will not remain effective following exposure to the digestive tract. Biologic medications are often utilized to address inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), which include Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, among other autoimmune disorders. If you are in need of IV therapy in Arizona, request a consultation at an Arizona Digestive Health location in your area.

From the moment I walked in the door at 7:30 a.m. to the time I left to go home, I had a 5-star experience with Dr. Seetharam and his team. My first interaction at the Endoscopy Center was with the two receptionists, both of whom were warm and welcoming. They both put my anxiety at ease with their smiles. Next up was the team that took my vitals and inserted my IV. Again a terrific experience - both of these team members were very personable and any fears I had dissipated right away. The team inside the Endoscopy Room similarly displayed the same level of warmth and compassion as the team members that I previously interacted with - it is clear that all team members at the Center receive the highest level of patient care training. My last (but not least!) interaction was with Dr. Seetharam. He has one of the best bedside manners of any doctors I have ever interacted with. Again, like his other team members, he exudes warmth and compassion. Thank you to the Scottsdale Endoscopy Center for a 5-Star Experience!

Dr. Hauptman has been my GI doc for years and has always treated me with honesty and respect. He takes the time to listen to what's going on and give me the best options for moving forward. He's never dismissed my symptoms or my concerns.

I really like the office and have been going 30years. I see Dr. Hauptman now that Dr. Wells retired. I like him very much. He is thorough and wants to help with issues.

NO ONE likes getting a colonoscopy (at least I don’t THINK so!!), but Dr Patel and his staff could not have been more caring and empathetic and knowledgeable regarding my pre-during-and post procedure. The hardest part is the ‘prep’, and even THAT wasn’t too bad!!! I highly recommend Dr Patel and this office!
