Marisa - GMA IV Nurse
IV Infusion Nurse
With 14 years of nursing experience, Marisa enjoys caring for patients at GMA because she feels like she is making a difference in a unique way and is able to give a little "TLC" on a person’s journey to wellness. "Sometimes people come in who have been through a lot physically and emotionally with an illness. They feel sick and sometimes apprehensive. I try to provide a place in our IV room where they can take a deep breath, listen to some pleasant music, and find a little hope. Often, our IV room is a place where patients support and connect with each other. It’s wonderful to see." Marisa and her husband and family have lived in Sonoma County for 9 years. She likes hiking, mountain biking in Annadel State Park, cooking, and getting lost in a good book.

IV Infusion Nurse
Jenia has been a registered nurse for 30 years. Her background is in home infusion nursing, where she helped those suffering from AIDS, Cancer, and Lyme disease. She heard of Dr. Gordon over 15 years ago, and became a patient before joining his team of IV nurses. Jenia has worked with many doctors, but until she met Dr. Gordon, she had not found many who would truly listen to their patients. Dr. Gordon’s philosophy of healing has inspired her to pursue better health for her family and friends. She is grateful to be part of his team. She lives in Ukiah with her husband, dog, cats, chickens and goats. She enjoys taking care of her grandchildren, going on goat walks, fermenting foods, and gardening.
IV Infusion Nurse
Early in her career, Kate found her love of alternative medicine and honed her skills as an infusion nurse. Now with six years of experience and three of those specializing specifically in alternative infusion medicine, she is so grateful to join the team at GMA. "There is something indescribable about a medical team that can think out of the box to provide unmatched, attention and personalized care to each of their patients. Each person is an individual and their care should reflect that. People are individuals, not a diagnosis." In Kate's free time she enjoys hiking and going out to the coast with her dog Rogue, cooking, painting and gardening.

IV Services at Gordon Medical

IV therapies are medications and/or fluids that are given intravenously. We access veins using a butterfly needle or IV catheter. Medications are either slowly infused by drip or given through a syringe manually.

IV therapies are indicated for numerous reasons, including, but not limited to: fluid and electrolyte replacement, antibiotic, antimicrobial, antioxidant, detoxification, and/or pain relief.

IV therapies are fast acting due to the direct introduction into the bloodstream. IV medications do not have to undergo digestive metabolism and therefore, some medications may be given at higher doses. They can also be a good option for those who are unable to take medications or nutrients by other routes (including oral, rectal, and topical routes).
