If you take warfarin, which is known by the name brand Coumadin, you may benefit from the Centegra Anticoagulation Management Service. This outpatient clinic helps to manage your dose of medication by providing immediate test results.The clinic replaces frequent lab visits for blood draws. During each appointment, a specially trained pharmacist uses a quick finger stick to obtain a single drop of blood to assess your response to warfarin. The pharmacist uses immediate test results to change your medication dose, if necessary. A complete report is then forwarded to your referring physician.Centegra bills Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance for all or part of the clinic’s charges. For more information about Anticoagulation Management, call 815-759-4744. The clinic has locations in Huntley, McHenry, Woodstock and Crystal Lake.
