What Patients are Saying

“Overall, the OPAT was a very convenient way of getting treatment without the hassle of going to the hospital every day or worse, being confined for the duration of the treatment. It lessens the chances of contracting infections from the hospital.”

M.M., diagnosed with Infective Endocarditis and treated with Vancomycin for 6 weeks

“Over-all experience- can be summed up in one word – FREEDOM! It was liberating to know that I need not spend as long as three months in the confines of the hospital… the feeling of anxiety was overwhelming since the hospital bill was getting bigger as the days went on. I dreaded the thought that all the family savings will all be spent for my hospitalization.”

M.U., with a device-related infection treated with Cefazolin for 6 weeks

“Our experience with OPAT has been excellent. It is very convenient. It allows the patient the ability to move around while antibiotic infusion is ongoing.”
