MCMC Anticoagulation Clinic

The MCMC Anticoagulation Clinic is run by clinical pharmacists who work closely with your provider to keep you safe. Blood thinners like warfarin are used to prevent harmful blood clots that can put you at risk for stroke, heart attack, and other serious medical problems. Although blood thinners are an important part of a long-term care plan for many patients, they require careful monitoring. If there is too much blood thinner in your body, you could bleed too much. If there is not enough, you could get a blood clot. If you are taking warfarin, your blood must be tested frequently to ensure proper dosage. Our state-of-the-art blood test uses a small finger stick to measure how fast your blood clots and your Anticoagulation Pharmacist will adjust your dose as needed to keep you in therapeutic range.

If you are taking warfarin, please ask your MCMC provider for a referral to the MCMC Anticoagulation Clinic, located at the Columbia Crest Building 1935 E 19th St., The Dalles.
