What is Infusion Therapy?
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.

EAST VALLEY GASTRO- Dr Panossian: The most caring physician I have seen in years. Not that the others have been bad, he is just several notches above. He is very upbeat, great bedside manner with exceptional communication. Took his time and seemed to really care to find the cause of my belly pain- even suggesting possibilities outside of his scope of practice. He's definitely one of the good ones. I'd recommend him to anyone!
