Anticoagulation service provides both INR testing and warfarin dose management services. These services are offered together in order to decrease the pain/discomfort, wasted time, and waiting associated with traditional venous draws. At the same time, the service hopes to at least maintain the quality of anticoagulation care your receive and improve it if possible.
With anticoagulation service, you avoid:
painful venous draws
waiting in line at the lab
waiting 2 days or more for your results
complicated dosing instructions over the phone
last minute trips to the pharmacy for new warfarin prescriptions
Testing, dosing, and scheduling follow-up visit are all done together. The average visit takes no more than 15 minutes, saving you time.
