anticoagulation clinic is a simple, convenient way to monitor and assist patients taking Coumadin® or any other brand of anticoagulant or blood-thinning medication. At MemorialCare Medical Group, the Clinic is a special time and place set aside for patients on these medications. Our clinics are staffed by licensed nurse practitioners and clinical pharmacists, under the supervision of our internal medicine physicians.

One of the chronic disease management services available at Peninsula Cardiology Associates is our Coumadin Clinics. Both our Salisbury and Berlin locations are directed by physicians and managed by experienced staff knowledgeable in various forms of anticoagulation therapy. If you are on an anticoagulant, it is important for you to know as much about this medication as possible. In order to be seen in one of our Coumadin Clinics a physician referral is needed.

As a patient taking anticoagulants, you should be aware of the potential for very serious side effects that can occur if the medication is not properly monitored. Some of these side effects can be life-threatening. Research shows that participating in an anticoagulation clinic may decrease serious complications and deaths from blood-thinning medications.

NP will take a drop of your blood by finger stick to analyze your PT/INR (Prothrombin Time/International Normalized Ration) level. Results will be reviewed with you and any appropriate adjustments to your medication will be prescribed. Additionally, you will learn about the complications, diet, and drug interactions related to taking Coumadin®.

Patients at risk for blood clots and prescribed anticoagulation (blood thinning) therapy by their physician can benefit from services provided by the Anticoagulation Clinics at Community Healthcare System. Our clinics are staffed by experienced pharmacists who work with patients and physicians to ensure safe and successful management of anticoagulation therapy through education, comprehensive patient counseling, medication monitoring, and coordination of patient care plans. Providers may refer patients at any stage of anticoagulation therapy to the clinic.
