I worked with an infusion nurse, Halen, who also worked at OSC and mentioned the practice was seeking infusion nurses. One day when I bumped into Dr. Favaro, I inquired. He said he would send my name to his administrator, and he really meant it, as I got a call the same day from the administrator to come in for an interview
