Who administers and supervises my IV vitamin therapy?
Your IV therapy is administered by an experienced phlebotomist. She has extensive expertise in administering all types of intravenous nutrient therapy.
Does it hurt?
Because of our nurses’ expertise, there is only a tiny pinprick sensation when entering the vein. Most patients say they hardly even notice it.
How long will my IV nutrient therapy take?
It varies. Depending on your specific treatment, your may have a quick “IV push,” which takes just a few minutes, or a longer-lasting IV drip, which may take 15-90 minutes.
Will my insurance cover treatment?
In many cases, unfortunately insurance does not cover these treatments; however, there are certain treatments that may be reimbursed if your particular insurer agrees they are medically necessary.
How many treatments of IV vitamin therapy will I need?
Every case is different. It all depends on your particular condition and your individual response to treatment. Chronic diseases often require chronic treatment. However, many of our patients report feeling symptomatic relief, more energy, and an overall sense of well-being after just one session of intravenous vitamin therapy!
