Optimizing Your Anticoagulation Therapy

Our Anticoagulation Clinic will offer you an individualized appointment experience.  Our Anticoagulation Nurse will use a quick and accurate method to check your level of anticoagulation medicine, and then review and adjust your medication as indicated. Our goal is to optimize your anticoagulation therapy with Warfarin (Coumadin) and/or low-molecular weight Heparin.
 
If you take the drug Warfarin (Coumadin), frequent monitoring of your drug level is vital to maintaining the proper dosage. Utilizing the Coag-Sense system, our Anticoagulation Nurse will perform a Point-Of-Care INR test for you with just a finger stick. Within minutes your INR results will be available and adjustments can be made to your Warfarin (Coumadin) dosing schedule if necessary. During your point-of-care testing, our Anticoagulation Nurse will also provide you with support and educational services regarding your anticoagulation therapy, and methods to reduce your risks while taking this medication.
 
Convenient, Prompt and Expert Care

Our Anticoagulation Clinic will is here to provide you with convenient, prompt and expert care.  You will no longer be required to have your blood drawn in the lab and then wait to hear your results and treatment plan. Instead, our Anticoagulation Nurse will conduct a simple test during a brief appointment.
 
Our Anticoagulation Nurse will be able to share your result with you immediately, adjust your dose accordingly, and provide you with supplemental anticoagulation teaching.  She will also follow up with your individual physician and most importantly, be present to support you with any other anticoagulation therapy needs you may have.
 
Appointments for our Anticoagulation Clinic are available on Monday, Thursday and Friday from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm and Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm.  Patients may contact our Anticoagulation Nurse by phone until 5:00 pm each day.
