When you are an adult, full disclosure of your condition is given to you and to others in the family, with your consent. Anticoagulation Clinic ▬ Many heart patients take anticoagulation medication like Coumadin (warfarin), to help prevent stroke, blood clots, and other problems. These "blood thinners" slow the blood's ability to clot. The Parkway Cardiology Anticoagulation Clinic is designed to manage patients taking the anticoagulant, Coumadin, or the generic name, Warfarin or Jantoven. The Anticoagulation Clinic is staffed by a registered nurse and pharmacist who are trained in anticoagulation management. Our nurse’s work closely with the patient's cardiologist to ensure the patient is kept in a safe therapeutic range for their medical condition. The Anticoagulation Clinic nurses provide instructions for Coumadin dosing and testing each time the INR blood test is reviewed. INR Testing ▬ Parkway Cardiology patients may come into the clinic for a finger stick test. This is done by appointment only. The visit takes about 5-10 minutes. Patients receive their test results immediately, and the nurse instructs them on any necessary Coumadin dose adjustments, and when to schedule their next INR test. Patients receive a dosage calendar to follow until their next visit. Patients will have the opportunity to discuss any anticoagulation related issues with the nurse during the appointment. Patients may also have their blood drawn at any other laboratory facility and track their results through Parkway Cardiology Anticoagulation Clinic. This is helpful for many patients who work or patients who travel frequently
Find a different place. If I left my care to Parkway, I would have had surgery I did not need. I would also be in very bad pain. The doctor was very nice at first but did not know anything about my condition. When I mentioned seeing actual experts, I was told he would no longer see me. I asked why, he said because I went to see a different doctor and went to a different ER. I was doctor shopping for my beta blocker... If you think heart pain is no big deal and something you can get used to, then Parkway is the place for you!
