Lake Norman Neurology is one of the few practices in the region to offer an in-office infusion suite. Infusion is supervised by our highly trained team of doctors and nurses and is well suited for patients who do not need to be admitted to the hospital for their therapy.

Many of our patients with a variety of conditions benefit from intravenous infusion therapy. Infusion is available in all three of our locations. We monitor our patients throughout the infusion process, and our physicians address any possible side effects as they occur.

Infusion Suites

Infusions are a critical part of the treatment plan for a wide range of health issues, including many neurological conditions. Your physician may order infusion therapy as an alternative to oral medications.

Our infusion suite is a dedicated space where patients can receive their treatment in comfort and privacy. A range of medications are commonly administered intravenously for the treatment of many conditions. For example, multiple sclerosis may be treated with infusions of medications including Tysabri, Ocrevus, Lemtrada and Rituxan. We also infuse IVIg (intravenous immunoglobulin), Entyvio and Remicade.

Conditions that may be treated with infusion therapy include:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Crohns
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ulcerative colitis

What Should I Expect From an Infusion Suite?

The process of receiving treatment at one of Lake Norman Neurology’s in-office infusion suites is designed to be as comfortable and quick as possible. When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll get settled in a reclining armchair before a member of our skilled RN infusion staff starts the treatment. While the medication is administered, feel free to watch a movie, read, access our wifi or just relax. A variety of snacks and drinks are available.

Because infusion suites are attached to our offices, our physicians are always nearby. Patients receiving infusions are closely monitored by our nurses and doctors. After your treatment, our staff will make sure you’re not having any adverse reactions before you head home.

Lake Norman Neurology is one of the few practices in our region that allows patients to get the intravenous medications they need in the comfort and privacy of an infusion suite. For your convenience, we offer infusion services in all of our locations. Feel free to call our office with any questions.

When referring a patient to our suites please call 704-799-8413. Infusions require insurance benefit investigation and authorization. Our Lake Norman Neurology Infusion team will be handling that to make the process as smooth as possible.
