Anticoagulation management

People who take certain anticoagulation medications (often called “blood thinners”) need close monitoring to ensure they’re getting the right dosage. Our pharmacists who are certified in anticoagulation management can work with your primary healthcare professional to monitor the effects of your medication and ensure your dose is appropriate.
