The Anticoagulation Clinic (ACC) is sometimes referred to as the “Coumadin Clinic.”
The ACC is staffed by pharmacists who are trained in anticoagulation therapy. These pharmacists monitor and manage the medications your medical provider has prescribed to prevent blood clots.
The purpose of the ACC is to provide safe and effective management
of anticoagulation therapy on an outpatient basis.
- Proactive Follow‐up if an Appointment is Missed
- Early Recognition and Management of Complications
- Preparation for Medication Interruptions Due to Medical Procedures
- Coordination of Care for Travel
Testing is done using a simple blood test that is immediately processed at the Clinic.
Results are ready within a few minutes.
Medication Dosage Adjustments
Your results will be used to adjust your medications if necessary.
A trained pharmacist will spend time discussing why you are on anticoagulation medication.
You will be counseled about your diet, effects illness can have, safety behaviors, possible
interactions between warfarin and other medications, vitamins and herbal remedies.
Our pharmacists will answer any questions you have concerning your anticoagulation therapy.
At the ACC, you will receive quality, individualized care by a team of pharmacists that are
committed to improving the management of your anticoagulation therapy.
Individuals respond differently to anticoagulation medication. It is necessary to monitor
each patient to make sure they are at safe and therapeutic levels.
