At Paragon Specialty, we work with gastroenterologists all over North America to treat gastroenterology conditions. We specialize in injectable and infusible medications to provide patients with different treatment options that work best for them. We offer multiple care options for administration giving patients a say in their treatment. The drugs we offer may be used to treat conditions in the home setting or at one of our infusion centers. Each person’s experience with a rare gastroenterology condition is different. They may have different challenges or symptoms. Our goal is to help our patients overcome the challenges they face, provide specialty medication to relieve their symptoms, and help them adhere to the treatment plan outlined by their GI doctor. Although these chronic, life-long conditions may not currently have a cure, they can be treated and managed in order to improve quality of life.
