Aftercare is an important part of our treatment program. The Infusio team does its best to provide you with as much information and follow up care as possible. In order to facilitate this process and to avoid frustration and misconceptions over what after care is included in the Lyme Program we would like to outline what we offer, what communication channels to use, and where the limitations of our aftercare are. Most importantly, the Infusio doctors cannot function as your primary care physician. You will need to continue your care with your local physician.
While we try to do all we can, it is important to recognize that there are limitations. Many of these are set by the local laws or the rules which define safe practice – all of which, we have to adhere to. These can be different, depending on which country your treatment center is located in.
It is also important to understand that it is impossible for any doctor or medical center to provide limitless access to staff and/or resources. That having been said, it is not always possible to draw a clear line as to where things stop and where they start. Some things have to be open to the discretion of the medical team. In the world of open communication and social media, providing individualized patient care in different countries poses certain challenges. Also, each patient situation is different and may need to addressed individually.
Comparing experiences, treatments, and suggestions made by our doctors on social media, can lead to confusion and does not always take into consideration the individual circumstances and possible legalities under which that doctor is working. The following information will outline what the Infusio offices can do, and how you can help us provide you with the best possible aftercare.
