About Us

Citrus Fruits

There is a need for out-of-the-box thinking in healthcare today. Many times this is a return to the practices of mindfulness and nutrition. Other times it is a deep-dive into our disrupted cellular processes so we can learn about how we got here. Toxins from our food, air, cleaning and skin products can--over time--lead to a depletion of nutrients needed for our cells to properly function. This can be linked to chronic disease in later stages of life.

IV Therapy Doc was started by Dr. Alexis Anvekar in 2019 after decades of hearing story after story of patients trying and failing what seemed to be every single available treatment for their chronic disease. With her degree in Biochemistry and board certifications in both Holistic and Conventional Internal Medicine, she dedicated over a year to additional specialty training on intravenous therapy, followed by years of personally supervising thousands of IV treatments. Dr. Anvekar meticulously created our hallmark IV Therapy Doc Treatments to target cellular functions to help restore health from the inside out.

 

We've been amazed at how effective IV Therapy can be for treating temporary illness and chronic conditions and for preparing people for stressful events like surgery and sporting events.

 

We're glad you're here. Let's meet.

More on Dr. Alexis Anvekar

Dr. Alexis Anvekar was raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated with honors from UC San Diego, obtaining degrees in Biochemistry and Cell Biology, with a minor in Psychology. She did not have support to attend college due to her gender, so she left home at age 18 and financed 100% of her room, board and education by working full time throughout college, often without permanent housing. She left Utah to complete her education in California where she still resides. She was very active in leadership roles throughout college and medical school.  Some roles included Student Body President, Student Body Vice-President, Editor in Chief of college newspaper, Co-Editor in Chief of medical school newspaper, Co-Founder of Student Organization for the Medical Awareness of AIDS, Delegate for American Medical Association (AMA) and American Medical Women's Association (AMWA). While in medical school, she received a national leadership award with AMWA given to the most promising female physician-in-training in the country.   As a senior at the medical school, she was invited along with the top 0.01% of graduating seniors to complete a coveted leadership fellowship called the USC Presidential Fellowship ran by USC's Marshall School of Business. She was also the sole person in her medical school class selected into USC's highest secret honor society.

After graduating from medical school, she chose to complete her training at the rigorous LAC+USC Internal Medicine Residency Program where she continued her role as a leader.  She served as Housestaff President, Southern California Vice President for the Committee of Interns and Residents, and National Vice President for the Committee of Interns and Residents.  In this role, she met regularly with politicians in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Washington, D.C.  After completing her residency in Internal Medicine, she was honored to serve an additional academic year as Chief Medical Resident.

 

She has been practicing since 2001 and was amongst the first in California to start a personalized type of healthcare service now known as concierge medicine.   Awards include Top Docs of San Gabriel Valley, Most Compassionate Doctor Award (given to top 3% nationwide physicians), Patient's Choice Award (given to top 6% nationwide physicians), America's Most Honored Professionals Award, LA Magazine's Top Doctors Award,  Pasadena Magazine Top Docs Award, America's Best Physicians Award and Who's Who Among Women Entrepreneurs.

She is an active volunteer in her community and a mother of three children.  Dr. Anvekar loves traveling and spending time with her family and friends.  Photography is her primary hobby.
