Anti-Coagulant Clinic (Coumadin Clinic)

First Coast Heart and Vascular Center offers a Coumadin Clinic to our patients. Anti-coagulant medication (often referred to as Coumadin or blood thinners) is sometimes necessary to prevent or treat conditions related to improper blood flow or clotting. It is important for patients taking Coumadin to get regular and timely blood tests to assure the effect of the blood thinner remains in the desired range.

Our patients benefit from one-on-one counseling and education regarding Coumadin side effects as well as the effects of various foods and other medications that can affect the test results.

We improve the comfort of these blood draws by using a finger stick method with the Protime/INR monitoring system rather than a venous blood draw. We provide our patients with immediate test results and dosing instructions.

At First Coast Heart and Vascular Center, we schedule the patient’s next appointment before they leave our office which ensures continuity of care. We provide a Coumadin clinic in our four primary office locations (Jacksonville/University, St. Augustine, Fleming Island and Palm Coast) in a comfortable and caring environment. Our clinical staff is highly trained and provides exceptional patient service.
