Infusion therapy describes the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the blood vessels. This process is also called intravenous or IV administration. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable medication is commonly used when pills or oral medications are insufficient, inappropriate, or unavailable. Several new medications are derived or made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be consumed via the mouth because they lose their effectiveness after exposure to the gastrointestinal tract. Biologic medications treat inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and other autoimmune disorders. If you require IV therapy in Lubbock, TX, request an appointment at a Lubbock Digestive Disease Associates location in your area.

Dr. Rakvit is extremely approachable and personable. I have been suffering for over 15 years with a condition that I had accepted as just the way it is. But x I was referred to Dr. Rakvit and she listened to what I was saying a n d took steps to correct my condition. Life is good again.

1st time I have ever had a scope but for what needed to be done LDDA took really good care of me. I wish there was an easier way to prep, that was honestly not fun but the procedure itself, I was put out and in no pain. The staff was excellent and I was negative and good for another 10 years. Gastroenterologist Dr. Arwin Rackvit took really good care of me during the procedure. I really appreciate her and the staff. Thank you again for the great care. Virgina Peek
