A QUOTE FROM HOLLIE

“I can’t thank the Rochester Home Infusion team enough for their incredible care during my recent illness. After dealing with home care agencies for my parents care and having to carefully monitor their medications, it was a pleasure to deal with seasoned professionals. Working with Joselyn, Steven and Kris has been a wonderful experience. Their quality care, knowledge, attention to detail, patient training, and personal care was outstanding! I would highly recommend The Rochester Home Infusion services.”
