PICC or PORT Placement options

OPTION #1

Your personal physician writes a prescription to have a PICC or PORT done in your home town and you have it in place before your first day of treatment. This is a procedure that is generally covered by health insurance.

OPTION #2

We can provide you with an order to have a PICC or PORT done in your home town if you do not have a specific physician.

* Note: This can only be done for established patients that have seen Dr. Eslinger.

* Not all labs will accept an out of state order, so we advise checking with facility.

OPTION #3

(PICC ONLY)
Arrangements can be made to place your PICC line with a private service through our clinic. Call our office for more details;

775- 829-1009.

* This service must be pre-paid.

* As a general rule, appointments must be scheduled at least 7 business days in advance.

*Cost is $1,000 for a 2 hour appointment with $100 fee for each extra hour if needed.

Highly recommended:


It is imperative that once your PICC line is inserted,


it be kept dry. This is a wonderful waterproof cover to wear while showering.
