Anticoagulation Clinic
Located in Carroll Hospital's East Pavilion, our Anticoagulation Clinic is here to help patients with certain conditions that require them to take the medication Coumadin® (warfarin), a blood thinner that helps prevent blood clots.

Conditions patients may have which require this medication include:
  • heart disease
  • atrial fibrillation
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • pulmonary embolism
  • myocardial infarctions
  • stroke
Coumadin (warfarin) must be monitored carefully to ensure that the level in your bloodstream is not too high or too low. A referral is required by your health care provider.

The clinic offers a highly personalized approach that includes the following:
  • Within a few days of receiving your health care provider’s referral, we’ll call you to set up an appointment
  • At your initial consultation, you’ll receive education and a treatment plan
  • We’ll set up regularly scheduled appointments that involve a simple finger-stick blood test to monitor the level of Coumadin (warfarin) in your blood
  • Immediate results allow us to make any necessary adjustments to your medication dosage

Studies have shown that success rates greatly improve in clinics like these, where a multidisciplinary team of cardiologists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and registered nurses is certified in the management of the drug.
