Our priority at the Ascension Saint Agnes Hospital Anticoagulation Center is to provide high quality medical and supportive care to patients on blood-thinning medications. We understand that a diagnosis of an illness which requires you to be on blood-thinning medications can be stressful and overwhelming. Part of Ascension Maryland, our clinic is dedicated to helping you maintain a healthy international normalized ratio (INR) and adapt to life with this new diagnosis. Our patients come in for a finger-stick test and results are immediate. Dosage adjustments are made onsite at the time of the test.
Our services include:
- Patient assessments
- Review of current medications, over-the-counter medications, herbals and supplements to check for possible drug interactions
- Ongoing patient education
- Monitoring of INR
- Dosage adjustment as necessary
- Communication with family physician/specialists
