Connecticut GI provides infusion services for our patients with inflammatory bowel disease. Our patient volume makes us one of the busiest centers in the northeast, with extensive experience in the safe administration of these intravenous medications.
Remicade and Tysabri can be given for the long-term treatment Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Also, at the direction of a Rheumatologist, Remicade can also be administered for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis. These medications are given by a nurse with special training and extensive experience who is dedicated to patients receiving IV infusions. There is always a physician present in the office for consultation, if needed.
CT GI is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable environment for the ongoing delivery of important intravenous medication. We have two infusion centers: one at our office in Farmington (near the UConn Health Center) and the other at our office in Glastonbury. Infusions are given in large private areas inside the office, exclusively devoted to this use. Comfortable reclining chairs and flat screen TV’s are provided for our patients. Internet wi-fi access is also available. We are pleased to be able to offer our patients the convenience of receiving their necessary medication at the same office where they see their gastroenterologist.
