The new Anticoagulation Management Clinic combines the services of both Hematology/Oncology/BMT and The Heart Center. It is a one-of-a-kind pediatric program designed specifically for quick, one-stop treatment and management of your patient’s anticoagulation medications. Blood tests, medication adjustments, prescriptions and consults are all available in one location, during one appointment. Blood tests are done with a simple finger-stick, making testing easier and less traumatic on the patient. This system is the professional’s tool for streamlined anticoagulation management and allows for automatic capture of patient ID for enhanced accuracy and safety in the clinic. Physicians Bryce A. Kerlin, MD, Karen M. Texter, MD, and Riten Kumar, MD, lead the clinic with the help of Jean Giver, RN, MSN, PNP-BC. Call Jean at (614) 722-8891 with any questions. All patients on anticoagulation medication may be referred.
