We believe to treat you we need to know you. So when we schedule our patients, we do so with the mindset that each person deserves our individual attention. Scheduled times are carefully established to minimize wait and optimize attention. Because we are so focused on keeping our schedules convenient for our patients, we require 24 hours advance notice for changes. This is particularly important with our infusions because any IV not utilized within 4 hours is discarded. We do not re-use or attempt to artificially extend the life of our infusions.
We will be happy to reschedule your appointment for a later time. But calls received less than 24 hours before appointment will result in a 50% charge of service to the credit card on file for consultations and 100% for scheduled infusions. We thank you so much for your understanding.
All our services and therapies are as unique as our patients. Therefore, tailor-made therapies may not be refunded.
All sales of services including but not limited to intravenous therapies are final. Unopened oral supplements may be returned for credit with a 20% restocking fee if less then 14 days since purchase.
All service must be utilized within 90 days of purchase date. Please, refer to terms
and conditions for further information.

Vitamins are vital for our body’s normal function and are absolutely necessary for our growth, general well being and vitality. Except for a few exceptions, vitamins cannot be manufactured or synthesized by the body and their absence or improper absorption may result in specific deficiency diseases. Therefore it is important for our body to obtain vitamins from outside sources. Latest researches indicate that many vitamins taken in large doses can support a varying number of diseases and ailments. Proper vitamin injections can supply the much- needed nutrients your body needs to maintain and enhance normal bodily function. Vitamin intravenous (IV) infusions are better absorbed by the body since they go directly into the blood stream. Alternatives to infusion therapies are intramuscular, subcutaneous injections, oral and topical routes of administration with varying degrees of bio-availability. As with any medication or supplemental treatments, intravenous or injection therapy may in rare cases cause side effects. Please, acknowledge below:
1. There is a risk of mild diarrhea, upset stomach, nausea, a feeling of pain and a warm sensation at the
