No one likes being poked by a needle. If your condition requires you to receive medicine through an injection or catheter, we want to help make your experience as comfortable as possible.

You may need infusion therapy for a variety of medical reasons. Many of the commonly treated conditions are listed below. Your infusion specialists at Bronson also offer expert care for many other related medical problems. If you need care for a condition not listed here, please call one of our infusion locations.

Comfortable, convenient facilities
Before your appointment, we will verify that your infusion therapy is covered by your insurance. At each visit, your care will be provided in a private room equipped with a recliner or a bed, telephone and TV (at select locations). We understand that you may be busy during the week, which is why we offer weekend and evening appointments for your convenience.
A thoughtful and skilled care team
You will be treated by our highly skilled pharmacists and nurses who specialize in administering medications directly into your veins. Before your infusion therapy even begins, they will discuss and explain every step of the procedure and treatment. You will also be taught how to care for yourself during therapy so that you can be an active participant in your healthcare.
After your appointment we will follow-up with your primary care provider and/or referring physician to make sure that your health and treatments are on the right track.
