Infusion Unit Therapy

Infusion Unit Therapies in Westchester

Our infusion unit offers intravenous therapies for immunologic and autoimmune disorders. We have been providing this service to patients in Westchester County since 1999, when Remicade (infliximab) was first approved by the FDA for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Since then, numerous additional “biologic” agents  and advanced therapies have been made available and we offer many of these in our center. All the therapies we offer are FDA approved.

Our facility is very attractive to patients. The setting is comfortable and private. Our office is well located, easy to get to, and provides ample free parking.  We use recliner infusion chairs and provide wireless internet access and cable TV in each private infusion room. Patients are monitored closely by our infusion nurse. Many patients prefer this setting to hospital based treatment units, where delays are common and the setting often impersonal.

Some of our patients are under the care of physicians elsewhere, but take advantage of the convenience, efficiency,  and comfort of our setting. We are more than happy to work with your treating physician to facilitate the provision of the treatment you may require. Typically, these treatments are quite costly and require support from your health insurance program.  Our team is quite experienced and will make every effort to obtain approval and payment for treatment, as well as seeking additional sources of support for your prescribed therapy.

We do not participate with any insurance (other than Medicare). Our office will obtain all the necessary pre-authorizations for all covered services provided. We will submit all claims to your insurance for you.

What our patients say

  • I have relied upon the medical skills of Dr David Lans since 2013 after a long search to find someone who could help me with my immune system problems.  Dr Lans offers a warm and inviting environment where you can unhurriedly discuss your problems and participate in proposed solutions.  I recommend him highly to my friends

  • I recently received excellent care from Dr. Lans. Not only did he diagnose my problem right away and correct it but I always felt he was very interested in getting me better. His office staff was very professional and accommodating as well.

  • Dr. Lans is indeed an amazing Doctor. On my first visit, he was kind caring and patient. He answered all my questions and asked me questions about my problems and how we could fix them. He didn't rush through my visit and was very thorough. Dr. Lans is a rare find. He is a very warm and genuine Doctor. I would give him 10 stars if I could! I wish I could still see him as my Doctor but he no longer accepts my insurance. Dr. Lans is Wonderful, Amazing, Caring, and Intelligent! Just a Great Doctor indeed!

  • I can’t say enough about how wonderful and professional Dr. David Lans is. I have been having trouble with my ankle since last November. In that time I have had three MRI’s and been to four different doctors. The last option was to have surgery. I was referred to Dr. Lans and traveled to New York to have a stem cell procedure done. Dr. Lans explained to me every step of the way what was going to happen and what I would be feeling and helped me to relax since I was a little nervous as to what “stem cell” was. After the treatment, it took a couple of weeks to really start feeling better. It has now been three months and I am NOT in pain anymore. I am the happiest that I didn’t do the surgery and went with Dr. Lans. It will still take a little more time for my ankle to be back to normal but I am well on my way. THANK YOU DR. LANS

  • Across the 16+ years during which Dr. Lans provided primary care as well as specific treatments for me, I came to understand, respect and appreciate what I am certain is only a small part of the considerable breadth and scope he brings to the task. Where medicine is a blend of science and art, he brings the best in command of broad knowledge and distills practical wisdom and insight from clinical experience, and from my observation, his thinking and judgment are not bound by convention or other potentially limiting factors.

  • Dr. Lans has been my PCP for many years. He is thoughtful, up to date, very smart, concerned, explains everything, spends as much time with you as you need, has a patient portal for individual information or contact. His staff is great. If I could give more stars, I would. Review
  • The Best.  Have been a patient for over 12 years. Review
  • It is rare to find a doctor these days who actually sits down and talks to you. What a refreshing experience!! Review
  • I went for years with undiagnosed symptoms and within two visits Dr. Lans had diagnosed the problem! Although having a chronic illness has a huge downside, he is open to trying alternative therapies and he is extremely respectful of every patient he sees. If you no longer trust Doctors or if you have been seen by abusive caregivers, give Dr. Lans a chance. He is the only reason I am as well as I am today. Review
