Anticoagulation Clinic (Coumadin®)
For patients who have a condition requiring anticoagulation (for example, some types of artifical heart valves or certain types of heart rhythms), Buffalo Heart Group has a dedicated professional team comprised of physicians, registered nurses, and medical technicians to monitor and adjust your dosage of Coumadin®.
If you are on this medication, periodic blood work (PT/INR tests) will be ordered to monitor your level of anticoagulation. These may be done at any blood-testing laboratory that is convenient to you and approved by your health insurance.
The Coumadin Clinic team will monitor these results and make any adjustments of your dosage necessary to maintain the appropriate level of anticoagulation for your particular needs. We also provide education regarding this medication, both via printed form and also accessible via this Web site.
