Alleviate symptoms with infusion therapy
The ARC Rheumatology Department provides ARC On-Site Infusion Therapy to help patients gain normal function or decrease pain, swelling, and stiffness in their joints and muscles caused by rheumatological disease and for treatment of silent disorders like osteoporosis.
In certain cases, we work with our specialty colleagues in ophthalmology, gastroenterology, and dermatology to infuse biologic medications for conditions like scleritis, pemphigus Vulgaris, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis.
An ARC rheumatologist, clinical nurses, and medical assistants are always on the premises to monitor your reactions and answer your questions. This is to ensure safety which is of paramount concern for us.
We have emergency services on site, and our staff has the experience to monitor for any adverse reactions or allergic responses to medications.
