IV Vitamin Therapy
What is the advantage of IV vitamin therapy?
Intravenous therapy allows for infusion of vitamins, minerals and compounds directly into circulation through the blood stream. This route provides the most potent delivery to cells by bypassing the limits of absorption through the digestive tract. This safe and powerful therapy provides support and relief for many health problems.
Is IV vitamin therapy covered by insurance?
No. Our therapies are not covered by insurance at this time.
I'm a new patient. Do I need a new patient consultation visit before my IV can be scheduled?
Yes. If you are new to our practice you will need to schedule a new patient visit. During this visit, Dr. Griffith will ask health screening questions and you will have a chance to ask questions as well. This visit can be billed to health insurance if you have a health plan that is listed on our insurance and rates page. Please note, the cost of Vital HealthCare's IV therapy is not included with the cost of new patient of follow-up patient visits. These are separate appointments with separate costs.
Will I receive an IV the same day as my new patient appointment?
No. For screening safety purposes you will need to schedule your IV for another day after your new patient consultation and the required blood labs have been reviewed by Dr. Griffith.
I'm an established patient. May I schedule an IV?
Yes, if you have been seen within the last year. If not, you will need to schedule a follow-up visit to be screened by Dr. Griffith for IV therapy. You may also need to have blood work completed. Please call our office to schedule your IV therapy. Booking your IV appointment through on-line scheduler is not available at this time.
Where are IVs administered?
IVs are administered in our clinic. We offer patients their own private room while receiving their IV and Dr. Griffith mixes and administers all IVs himself.
Are your IVs drip bags prepackaged/premixed or are the medications mixed at the time of my appointment?
Our IV drips are always mixed at the time of your appointment. Other clinics may use prepackaged/premixed drip bags. These formulas tend to be weak and non-effective, which is why the clinics that use them do not require a screening appointment and blood work. Prepackaged IVs may also risk contamination or infection due to long storage and shipping times.
Dr. Griffith feels deep responsibility for safety and the understanding of the nuanced details of IV therapies he uses in practice. All of the medications we order are made of the highest quality ingredients and they are ordered from a well-known, reputable pharmacy.
Which of your IV options is best for me?
Some patients benefit from IV therapy while undergoing cancer treatment, fighting autoimmune or chronic disease, and for support in resisting infection, pollutant exposures, fatigue, inflammation and stress. During your new patient consultation, you and the doctor will discuss which options will work best for you!
