“Infusion” or “infusion therapy” is the administration of medications and/or fluids directly into the vein of a patient. This process is also known as intravenous or IV infusion therapy. Infusion, intravenous, or injectable approaches to medication administration are typically used when pill/oral medications are insufficient, inappropriate, or unavailable. Many of the latest medications are made from living cells (biologic) and cannot be taken via the mouth, as they will not remain effective after exposure to the digestive tract. Biologic medications are often used to address inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and other autoimmune disorders. If you or a loved one are seeking infusion therapy in Tulsa, OK, request a consultation at an Adult Gastroenterology Associates location near you.

Dr. Conkling has been my Gastroenterologist for many years now. He is the only Doctor I have that literally takes the time to visit with me about my medical history, my current physical health and future plans to help me through my good health journey. I truly know that he saved my life AND helped me have a better quality of life, by finding and treating my medical issues. I appreciate being heard and I appreciate how you discuss medical treatment and procedures with me, giving me the opportunity to choose from options that work best for me. You are straight forward and that is helpful. Dr. Conkling has no problem speaking directly with me over the phone, if there are questions or conversations best addressed by him. He puts me at ease and I trust that he has my best interest at heart. Thank you, Dr. Conkling, for treating me like a human being. Unfortunately it's hard to find this type of consistent caring medical environment these days. Dr. Conkling provides a safe place where you feel as if you are working as a team. I leave feeling confident that I'm in the right place. Keep doing what you do, Sir. You are one of the best for sure!!!! Many blessings. Sadiqa LaNear

Dr. Blankenship was excellent ,he took time before and after to not only speak to me,but listened to me at length as well. His professionalism,thoroughness and bedside manner is unsurpassed.Would recommended him and his staff to anyone.
