Intravenous (IV) Therapy

At Visions HealthCare, we are able to provide you with IV Therapies within an outpatient setting.  We are able to infuse a variety of medications, fluids, vitamins, minerals and nutrients to assist you in achieving optimal wellness.  Our IV Therapies may be beneficial for many chronic diseases, acute illnesses as well as patients seeking to maximize overall health.

The Visions HealthCare IV Department offers patients a bright, comfortable and relaxing environment in a spacious, corner suite in our Dedham location.  Presently, the room can accommodate 5+ patients in comfortable recliners.  During an IV treatment, you receive beneficial vitamins, minerals, and nutrients into your body via the bloodstream, bypassing your digestive system.

Malabsorption and concerns with your body’s metabolism are two main reasons providers at Visions HealthCare may recommend IV Therapy.  When the gastrointestinal tract is impeded by bacteria, virus or high levels of toxicity, the “gut” is unable to properly absorb the essential nutrients it needs to keep you well.  Also, illness and disease may lead to an inability to convert the nutrients from food and supplements.  Since IV therapy bypasses the digestive system completely, your body is able to readily receive and use these nutrients despite concerns with your gut.  The option to supply your body with specific nutrients can have a huge impact on your body’s ability to get well.

Our providers and practitioners take excellent care of you during these sessions.  Your care is overseen by your ordering provider and Registered Nurses.  Our IV protocols have been used for many years and have been successful in supporting the treatment in a variety of conditions.  Our goal at Visions HealthCare is to maximize your healing and minimize side effects; IV therapy is one of the treatment tools conveniently provided at our office to reach that goal.

Please call Visions HealthCare at 781-431-1333 to set up an initial appointment with one of our providers to discuss if an IV Therapy would be beneficial to you.  Please note that an order from a medical physician is required for IV Therapy.
