Coumadin (Warfarin) Clinic In Atlanta
Coumadin (generically called warfarin) is a blood thinner that is used for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. Monitoring at regular intervals is required to ensure that the blood is kept adequately thin for effective treatment, but does not become too thin. A blood test, reported as an INR (International Normalized Ratio), is obtained in our office through a simple fingerstick.
The Coumadin clinic is staffed by technicians trained in Coumadin management, and results are available almost immediately. Depending on the INR levels, the Coumadin dose may require adjustment. INR levels should be checked every 1-4 weeks once a therapeutic dose is achieved.
