Anticoagulation Clinic

The Anticoagulation Clinic (ACC) (phone, fax, hours, directions) is a specialized clinic that focuses predominantly on the management of anticoagulation with Coumadin. The mission of the ACC is to provide safe and effective anticoagulation therapy.

Anticoagulation Services

The ACC providers, including Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs), who have had specialized training in Anticoagulation Therapy Management, coordinate and optimize anticoagulation therapy by:

  • Managing anticoagulation dosing
  • Providing systematic monitoring and patient evaluation
  • Providing ongoing education, including monthly coumadin education classes open to the public
  • Communicating with other providers involved in the patient's care

Conditions we commonly treat include a trial fibrillation, mechanical heart valves, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, CVA, TIA and other conditions that require anticoagulation therapy with coumadin/warfarin. 

 

Benefits of the Anticoagulation Clinic

Expert management by an anticoagulation specialist is essential for achieving a successful outcome. Coumadin therapy can bring great rewards. But the medication also comes with some very high risks.

For instance, the body's response to the treatment can change rapidly, with each person's response varying uniquely based on factors such as diet, medications, and lifestyle. So regular blood testing is critical for precisely monitoring and adjusting dosages to stay within the international normalized ratio (INR). Sansum Clinic's anticoagulation specialists work with you to ensure your good health.
