Working With Our Physicians
Patients who are referred for infusion will first see one of our physicians who will take a medical history and conduct any necessary preliminary investigations. ARAPB is one of the largest and most highly regarded rheumatology practices in the country. Our physicians have extensive knowledge and experience in the infusion of bisphosphonates and biologics for the treatment of for rheumatologic and inflammatory disorders.
All ARAPB offices have x-ray, ultrasound, and infusion therapy services to completely and conveniently meet patients’ needs. Our physicians and nurses are always on site when patients receive their infusions.
After each infusion, an ARAPB physician or infusion nurse will send a letter of notification to the referring physician. This is to keep the primary care physician informed and allow for the timely scheduling of patient follow-up visits or any adjustments in dosing. ARAPB physicians will schedule follow-up visits for patient monitoring if necessary, but always respect the role of the directing primary care physician for this therapy.
There are a number of biologic drugs available. The right biologic drug for a particular patient depends on the disease being treated and multiple other factors, which are unique to each person’s case.
