About This Location

During the initial visit to the Outpatient Pharmacy Clinic, the pharmacist will spend about 30 minutes with the patient reviewing their medical history and discussing the risks, benefits and purposes of anticoagulant therapy and answering questions.

After the initial visit, appointments will last about 15 minutes. The frequency of visits will depend upon which medication has been prescribed for you; the reason for the therapy; medical history; and other factors. Generally speaking, patients taking warfarin will be seen more often; those taking direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC)s require less frequent visits. 

Depending upon location, patients may be seen in person or via a secure, private telehealth visit. 

Services are recommended for individuals who have: 

  • atrial fibrillation (Afib) or valve replacement
  • pulmonary embolism (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • certain vascular conditions
  • or those with a genetic disorder that causes hypercoagulability, such as Factor V Leiden.

Patients are seen by physician/provider referral, typically within seven days of referral.
