Coumadin is an oral anticoagulant (blood-thinning medication) used to lower the chance of blood clots forming in your system. Certain cardiovascular conditions may require you to have Coumadin therapy to minimize your risks for clotting.
If your cardiologist prescribes Coumadin as a medication that you need to take for your condition, you will be enrolled in our Coumadin Clinic located at the Phoenix location of Biltmore Cardiology.
Safe use of the anticoagulant, Coumadin, requires careful monitoring and regulation of the drug. We understand the importance of providing such a service to meet the needs of patients taking Coumadin.
The Biltmore Cardiology Coumadin Clinic is under the supervision of our cardiologists. We have a committed staff consisting of experienced nurses and assistants who are trained professionals, specializing in Coumadin management.
We have an on-site lab where the fingerstick method is all that is needed to obtain your Protime blood results in a quick two minutes. At that time, you will receive written results, instructions, and your next appointment will be scheduled. This service is available by appointment to help expedite your visit.
The Coumadin Clinic will provide you with counseling and educational materials to help you achieve and maintain appropriate Coumadin control. We want to give you as much information as possible to assist you in your Coumadin management.
