Are IV infusions right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for IV infusions at The Doctor’s House, Dr. Okulaja discusses your symptoms, medical history, medication regimen, and lifestyle. She checks your vital signs and completes a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and wellness. She may also complete a psychiatric evaluation to detect or rule out mental health challenges.

Dr. Okulaja often uses blood tests to determine which type of IV infusion is best for you. Everyone can benefit from IV infusions, but the type of infusion that’s most beneficial varies from patient to patient. 

What should I expect during IV infusions?

During IV infusions at The Doctor’s House, you relax in a comfortable, reclining chair while Dr. Okulaja inserts a very fine needle into a vein in your arm. She infuses a nutritional solution into your body while you sleep, read a book, listen to music, or do something else relaxing. The length of time each treatment lasts is usually 20-60 minutes. 

What happens after IV infusions?

After IV infusions you can expect to feel better immediately, with continued improvements appearing over the next few days and weeks. Dr. Okulaja often recommends you complete a series of IV infusions spaced out over time to achieve the long-lasting, anti-aging results you desire.
