Best of the City: Health & Beauty

The temperature is not the only thing heating up in Phoenix and Scottsdale. The Valley is virtually en fuego with new to-dos, who's whos and must-tries.

Even in the age of concierge medicine, few nurses make house calls, especially for hangovers or exercise recovery. But for nurse anesthetist Antonio Moore, delivering hydration and supplements via IV or injection is all in a day’s work. “We wanted to focus on health and wellness,” he explains, referencing Carey Catania, his fellow co-founder of IV Revival. “So we have infusions that boost the immune system, aid in exercise recovery, and help control chronic diseases and acute illnesses. We also offer injections for energy, beauty boosting and fat burning.”

Moore first practiced as an ICU nurse for 10 years after leaving his native Chicago to live in Las Vegas, but in 2010, he packed up his family to attend nurse anesthetist school in Glendale. “I love the lifestyle here,” he says.” Three years later Moore and Catania (M.A.C.) Anesthesia Services—a mobile provider—was born. IV Revival came about in 2016 after the duo experienced the benefits of receiving IVs regularly to bounce back from strenuous activity or late nights.

Though IV Revival does get the occasional call to treat recovering bachelors and bachelorettes, more than half of the client load are repeat customers with chronic needs. As to what sets IV Revival apart from the competition, Moore says: “It’s the quality of our staff and our product. Our fluids are pH balanced with electrolytes. And the vitamins are five to seven times more concentrated.” Typical injections are $55, while infusions like the Revive Custom IV with B complex, B12, magnesium, vitamin C and more, are $175 and take about 40 minutes to administer. “We’re all about discretion,” he says of his team, comprised of exclusively registered nurses. “We treat our clients like celebrities. Our nurses drive their own vehicles—no ads—and our clients love that.”

Today IV Revival serves the Valley, but soon Moore hopes to expand the company throughout Arizona and possibly across America, delivering wellness as he goes.
