The Doctor’s Choice is proud to offer in-home intravenous (IV) nutritional and medication therapies for patients who wish to spend less time in the hospital and return to the comfort of their home and daily life. IV therapy can quickly become incredibly costly and time-consuming, especially for those dealing with chronic illnesses, such as autoimmune disorders, or those in need of ongoing treatment, such as those with cancer or hormone deficiencies. Regardless of the IV therapy you or a loved one needs, our skilled registered nurses (RN), licensed practical nurses (LPN) and highly-trained caregivers provide comprehensive medical and nutritional services.

What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous therapy, also known as infusion therapy, involves the administration of antibiotics, medications, and nutritional formulas directly into the blood stream. The infusion of fluid may be administered with a single injection or over a period of time via a catheter and drip chamber, which controls the rate of fluid introduced into the blood stream. Typically, IV therapy is prescribed when a patient’s illness or condition will not be treated as effectively with oral medication or other conservative treatments.
IV therapy is often prescribed for patients afflicted with:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Cardiac Concerns
- Neurological Issues
With the assistance of The Doctor’s Choice, our patients can receive the medications they need in the comfort of home, without having to travel to and from the hospital or spending hours waiting in a doctor’s office.
Receive IV Treatment from a Licensed Home Health Provider
The highly skilled nurses, nursing aides, caregivers, and medical staff at The Doctor’s Choice have extensive experience with IV therapies and have special training in treating adults, seniors, individuals suffering from long-term illnesses, and more. Our team coordinates with each patient’s physician, family, and pharmacy to ensure safe, efficient treatment. The types of intravenous therapies we commonly provide include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Pain Management
- Parenteral Nutrition
- Immune Globulin
In addition to administering at-home intravenous services, our nurses strongly believe in working closely with each patient to help educate and familiarize him or her with the process in order to improve confidence, independence, and self-reliance, particularly when adjusting to a new medical condition. The Doctor’s Choice also provides comprehensive services for optimal patient care and recovery, such as private nursing, physical therapy, medication management, occupational therapy, and even domiciliary care.
