Our Gainesville location offers patients an in-house Infusion center.
What is Infusion Therapy?
Infusion therapy is a type of medical treatment in which medication is delivered through a needle or catheter directly into the body via blood vessel, the spinal cord, or a muscle. It is prescribed when a patient's condition has become severe enough to no longer be effectively treated through oral medications.
