Carroll Arthritis, P.A. is dedicated to state-of-the-art treatment of arthritis. The past decade has seen the advent of the biologics. These drugs are used to treat the auto-immune diseases: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Lupus, and Ankylosing Spondylitis. At Carroll Arthritis, P.A., we also serve as an infusion facility for local dermatologists and gastroenterologists who are prescribing the biologic drugs for Psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, and Ulcerative Colitis.

The FDA-approved biologics infused at Carroll Arthritis, P.A. include Remicade (www.Remicade.com), Orencia (www.Orencia.com), Benlysta, (www.Benlysta.com), Actemra, (www.Actemra.com), and Rituxan (www.Rituxan.com).
We also administer Cimzia injections (www.Cimzia.com).

The intravenous infusion of the biologics is given in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Our infusion nurses are highly skilled in catheter placement and management of the infusion process. Depending upon the biologic prescribed, infusions are given monthly, every 2 months, or every 6 months. The infusion staff will assist with insurance benefit verification and prior authorization for treatment, if required by the insurance company.
