Preparing For Your Infusion

Your Upcoming Infusion

Here is some important information to help prepare you for your infusion appointment at BIDMC. We thank you in advance for making every effort to arrive on time.

Before Your Appointment

If you are receiving an infusion of medication, you must order your medication and complete a phone screening the night before your appointment. Call 617-667-1522 after 6pm, and choose option #2 to get started.

If you have a cold, flu or other infection, you may need to reschedule your appointment. Contact your doctor who ordered your infusion to find out.

If your care requires you to receive repeated infusions or medications, we encourage you to schedule at least two appointments in advance.


We welcome one family member or loved one to stay with you during your appointment. Due to space constraints, we cannot accommodate more than one visitor. Children under 8 years old are not permitted in the infusion area.

Amenities and Services

TV Service: We offer TV service at each infusion chair. Because of the close proximity of one chair to the next, we recommend that you bring headphones or ear buds if you wish to watch TV during your treatment.

Internet: We offer free wi-fi.

Food: We provide boxed lunches (sandwich, fruit and a drink) and a variety of juices and ginger ale. We also have a patient refrigerator where you can store your own food.


The best parking is located at Feldberg garage, located on the BIDMC East Campus, 330 Brookline Avenue, Boston. We will provide you with a validation sticker which can be redeemed for up to three hours of free parking, and a discounted rate if you are here longer than three hours.
