“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” is a service involving the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the blood vessel of a patient. It is also referred to as intravenous or IV infusion. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable approaches to drug delivery are commonly used when oral/pill medications are unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate. A number 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 after exposure to the gastrointestinal tract. Biologic medications are frequently used to address inflammatory bowel diseases, including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis among other autoimmune disorders. For more information on receiving IV therapy in Indianapolis, IN, request a consultation at an Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology location in your area.

I traveled from out of state. Where I live there is a shortage of GI doctors. I needed my three year follow up colonoscopy, which was due in March. I had a a large precancerous polyp removed the last time. I'm also experiencing new onset bowel changes. I received an appointment within a week. My colonoscopy is scheduled for July 16th. I couldn't be more pleased. The staff is professional. Dr. Jacob's was professional ,non intimidating, and a good listener. 👍

I had persistent diarrhea following gall bladder surgery in 2018. My former internist treated the symptoms but never looked for the reason. In 2023, I relocated to Franklin and was referred to Dr. Thayer Nasereddin. Lucky me! Dr. Nasereddin actually listened to me, ordered a sigmoidoscope and I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis. My life no longer requires planning trips based on the location of the nearest bathroom.
