Iron is an essential mineral assisting the body to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. There are risks and benefits to having an iron infusion, and your doctor can explain these to you at a consultation. Iron Infusions are performed by Dr Dmytro Nechyporenko. Cost is $150.
Dr Dmytro Nechyporenko offers the option of Medical Termination of Pregnancy for those patients who meet the eligibility criteria.
