Our team is comprised of providers who administer and monitor anticoagulant therapy for our patients. Anticoagulants (also called blood thinners) are often prescribed to people who have blood clotting problems due to thrombosis or other disorders that increase the likelihood of blood clots—including atrial fibrillation, cardiovascular disease and stroke.
Please see an informative video entitled, “Living with Warfarin” created by Dr. Davis’ alma mater, Johns Hopkins, to help you understand the importance of Anticoagulant Management and what is required to be successful.
What to bring:
It’s very important that you bring all of your medications in their original bottles. This includes vitamins and supplements. Your first visit is a great opportunity to ask plenty of questions, so feel free to bring a list.
