What is infusion therapy?
Infusion therapy describes the process of administering medications directly into a patient's blood vessels. It is additionally known as intravenous or IV infusion. Intravenous, infusion, or injectable approaches to medication delivery are typically utilized when pill/oral medications are insufficient, inappropriate, or unavailable. Several of the latest medications are derived or made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be ingested orally, like a pill, as they are no longer effective after exposure to the gastrointestinal tract. Biologic medications are frequently prescribed to address inflammatory bowel diseases, which include Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis along with other autoimmune disorders. If you are in need of IV therapy in Utah, request a consultation at a Utah Gastroenterology location in your community.

Dr. Dopey is great! He takes the time to ask questions and explain everything going on!!
Utah Gastroenterology in Bountiful is amazing. My husband started seeing Dr. Moore for a serious disease. He took immediate action in getting my husband to a U of U Hospital specialist. He has taken care of him until this appointment. His staff is so responsive, helpful, empathetic and kind. Drew and Stephanie have gone above and beyond. Thank you to everyone at this office who has helped us navigate my husbands situation.
My time there was good. The P.A that talked to me, ( I believe his name was Dr. Miller) was very friendly and answered all my questions plus more. I would recommend your staff to anyone in need. Just like my friend Susan DeHann recommended you to me.
Very thorough and great bedside manner!
Dr Frech has saved my life and for many years he has continued to monitor my health. Knowledgeable, professional, personable and I have always known that he is genuinely concerned about me and my health situations. A good man and a good doctor. The BEST !
