Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Is Intravenous (IV) Therapy Safe?
Thousands of people receive intravenous (IV) fluids and medication daily with zero complications. The most common problem with IV treatment is infection. With proper sterile techniques, the risk of infection is close to zero. At Replenish, our professionals are highly trained and take the utmost care to ensure that your treatment is as safe as possible.
2. Should I visit Replenish or go to an Emergency Room for hydration therapy?
The difference between Replenish and the Emergency Room is the cost and the comfort. The average cost of an Emergency Room visit for hydration treatment is close to $1000. The average wait-time in Atlanta Emergency Rooms is approximately four hours.
For a fraction of the cost, our Emergency trained professionals will cater to your hydration needs in a prompt and comfortable manner.

Treatments last approximately 20 to 45 minutes depending on the amount of fluid needed by the patient.
5. How often should I get a treatment?
Our providers at Replenish can help tailor each client's treatment individually. However, as a general rule, the physicians at NomadMD recommend elective IV therapy no more than twice a month.
