What is infusion therapy?
The term "infusion", or “infusion therapy”, references the administration of medications directly into the bloodstream of a person. It is additionally known as intravenous or IV infusion therapy. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable methods of drug administration are usually used when oral/pill medications are inappropriate, unavailable, or insufficient for addressing the need at hand. Several of the newest medications are biologic (made or derived from living cells) and cannot be taken via the mouth, like a pill, because they are no longer effective once exposed to the gastrointestinal system. Biologic medications are commonly utilized to treat inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, in addition to other autoimmune disorders. To learn more about receiving IV therapy in Dallas, TX, request an appointment with one of our skilled providers at a Digestive Health Associates of Texas location in your area.

Dr. Masand showed compassion, answered all my many questions, and now I feel better after his expert medical treatment.
Very kind, patient, friendly and professional group! Immaculate facility as well. Kept me at ease.
Dr. Nackley is wonderful. He’s a great listener and takes the time to understand any issues you have. He’s friendly, funny, and a concerned doctor who will do whatever possible for his patients. And his staff is great to deal with as well.
Excellent customer service , Dr. Anderson listens and very patient. All the nurses and ladies at the front desk are amazing.. only negative is there's no cell phone connection in the building and they don't share thier wifi code
I'm a new patient to Dr. Bass and I really like him. I'm sad that he's retiring. His staff is a 10 in my book! He's very patient-oriented, kind and knowledgeable. I will miss him.
