Therapeutic phlebotomy is a blood draw procedure prescribed by your physician as part of a treatment of various medical conditions associated with the accumulation of excess iron in the body. Common examples of such conditions are hemochromatosis and polycythemia. Your doctor will decide how much blood will be drawn based on the reason you're having the procedure. The blood draw stimulates the body to make new red blood cells which require iron. Therefore, the process depletes the iron stores in the body as new red blood cells are made. The procedure is relatively safe, but some patients may feel woozy and their blood pressure may drop. Some patients may feel tired after the blood draw. Patients are encouraged to drink fluids before and after each treatment and to avoid strenuous physical activities for 24 hours after each treatment.
Cancellations made up to 24 hours before a scheduled appointment via email, text, or phone call will be processed without a penalty. Alternatively, you can log into your VeniDirect account to make the necessary changes. Cancellations made 24 hours or less before an appointment will be subject to a charge of either 100% of reserved service or $50, whichever is greater. This includes appointments where our service provider is unable to access the property, is turned away, or the patient is unavailable at the specified time. In the event that VeniDirect cancels an appointment with less than 24 hours' notice, a new appointment will be scheduled for the patient without penalty. Availability permitting. VeniDirect provides irrevocable, non-tangible services, therefore a "convenience fee" is charged when you book. Except as outlined in our Cancellation Policy, the convenience fee is not refundable. Regardless of the circumstances, once a technician has been dispatched to your home or business, you are not eligible to receive a refund or credit.
