Rapid Recovery

Many moons ago one of our founders, Bob, went to a bachelor party a day early with another of the groomsmen. The two of them decided to have a night out before the rest of the party arrived.

Bad idea. At 11 the next morning Bob called his casino host and asked to have his flight changed. He was bad off, going home, and skipping the bachelor party. Luckily, Nick at Caesar's decided to call a car and have Bob sent to an IV spa. Though afraid of needles, Bob went ahead and went, in his jammies.

An hour and a half later Bob was back at the tables, drinking a double and ready for the party to start in earnest.

In late 2016 Bob told Rachel, "Those IVs are a miracle and we've got to open one of these in Shreveport", they talked to Dr. Shaik (who Bob worked for), and those three put together a plan to bring a high-quality, medically excellent, IV spa to the area.

We maintain an all-RN team of nurses who have at least 5 years of extensive and intensive IV experience, buy only from U.S. based high-quality pharmacies, follow rigorous disinfecting and safety protocols, and steer clear of any "fad" treatments that aren't 100% safe.

Dr. Shaik (Muzakeer A. Shaik, M.D.), who is in charge of all our medical decisions, is Board Certified in Internal Medicine. He completed internship and residency at Columbia University Hospital, and has been a hospitalist and Internal Medicine physician in East Texas at hospitals in Tyler and Longview, and Baylor Scott & White in DFW for many years.


He picked this picture to let you know he's more than a physician, he's a super dad.

Dr. Shaik is responsible for oversight of all policies and procedures, and is the prescribing physician on every treatment given by

Rapid Recovery.

Bob is a former neonatal therapist with experience in Tyler, Longview, and DFW.


Our #1 priority is your safety.


Since 2017 we've been doing it "right", and that's the way the Rapid Recovery Experience will always be.
