IDIMA IV Antibiotic Infusion Clinic

 

We Understand This Can Be a Difficult Time

Allow Us To Make The Process Smooth and Simple...

 

At the IDIMA infusion clinic our ambition is to offer comprehensive, collaborative and compassionate care for patients with various infections and diseases who require infusion treatment.  We offer a pleasant & comfortable setting specifically designed to ease the fears for patients preparing to receive a new form of medical treatment.

 

Since our IV clinic has been established in the medical community for the past 25 years, our professional staff is trained and experienced in all aspects of IV infusion and routine IV care.  For the duration of a patient’s IV treatment their care will be overseen by one of our Infectious Disease Physicians and by our outstanding medical staff of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Medical Assistants.
