The Anticoagulation Clinic, recognized by the Anticoagulation Forum as an Anticoagulation Center of Excellence (2013-2015), is designed to provide close monitoring and essential education for patients on anticoagulants.

Being named a center of excellence is a recognition of our efforts to always offer the highest level of care and achieve the best possible patient outcomes.

  • After your visit, the pharmacist notifies your doctor of your new treatment plan
  • Ongoing diet and lifestyle education and other important factors related to anticoagulation therapy
