About Our IV Services
IV Nutritional And Chelation Therapies

IV therapies are indicated for numerous reasons, including, but not limited to: fluid and electrolyte replacement, antibiotic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, detoxification, and/or pain relief.

IV therapies are fast acting due to the direct introduction into the bloodstream. IV medications do not have to undergo digestive metabolism and therefore, some medications may be given at higher doses. They can also be a good option for those who are unable to take medications or nutrients by other routes (including oral, rectal, and topical routes).

About Our IV Services

Our Nursing Team

Our skilled nursing team is experienced in working with patients who have difficult to access veins, and can gently help you in making IV treatment as painless as possible. Many patients find time in the IV room is a wonderful time to make connections with other patients, while others prefer a quiet time resting. We strive to accommodate your needs.
