“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.

Everyone from reception desk to nursing care preparing me for procedures were very considerate and caring individuals. Seemed to be happy in their jobs! Went through the steps of preparing and want to mention Kay the nurse who did my IV who is exceptional. I explained why my hand was not acceptable location for the IV and she positioned it on the arm. She was gentle and put the needle in without pain and discomfort. Excellent job of finding vein too. Dr Crane is an exceptional caring doctor and takes time to explain things and answer questions. In the exam room they took care of my special needs without question and very helpful to make me comfortable. Afterwards the individuals who prepared me for discharge were also very caring and helpful. I highly recommend Dr crane and the staff for the special care given to me for this procedure. Thank you for excellent care. Diana

Love Dr. Crane! My procedure went well. He and the rest of the staff were there before during and after to reassure me, answer any questions, and send me home knowing what to expect. They're a great team.

Dr Jacob was very thorough and compassionate of my situation. He took extra time to answer all of my questions and concerns and put my fears at ease. I would send any of my friends or family to see him. He was very kind.
