Our goal is to provide Infusion Services locally so our patients don’t have to travel long distances. The Infusion Center was made possible through the generousity of Alex and Jane Boyd.
How does one become an infusion patient?
- The patient’s provider calls us to discuss the patient’s therapy that they would like us to provide. They then fax an order with diagnosis and/or diagnosis code, a data sheet, current office notes, and current labs, if pertinent. Once this information is received it is faxed to the appropriate person for authorization/approval.
- We make sure the provider’s office is aware that we cannot accept the patient until authorization is received. Following receipt of authorization, the patient or care giver is contacted and an appointment is made.
What if a patient calls or presents with an order signed by an out-of-state provider?
- We are unable to accept orders with out-of-state provider signatures.
- We assist the patient in obtaining an Arizona licensed provider order.
