MaineGeneral's Anticoagulation Clinic provides services Monday through
Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
After you receive a referral from your doctor, one of our nurses
will call you to make your first appointment.
During this visit we will do a brief physical assessment, check
your blood and have you speak with the nurse.
When you start your therapy, you can expect to come to the clinic
at least twice a week until we stabilize the dose of
warfarin/coumadin you need according to your lab results.
Once your medication level is within the prescribed therapeutic
range, you will only need to come to the clinic once every four
to six weeks, depending on your lab results and your need to
speak with the nurse.
We can arrange for your blood tests at a lab closer to your home
for your convenience. We also work very closely with all home
health agencies if your doctor wants you to have this service.
