All patients wishing to become a part of UC Davis Medical Center Anticoagulation Clinic must be referred by a UC Davis Physician

  • All patients must have a primary care provider at UC Davis Medical Center. A specialty provider may act as the primary care physician (PCP) for the patient, but the provider must be prepared to answer all questions related to the patients care while being cared for at the Anticoagulation Clinic.
  • Per policy, the pharmacy outpatient anticoagulation clinic will not assist in monitoring anticoagulation therapy until you have been seen in clinic.
  • If you decide to start warfarin therapy outside of the hospital, you will be responsible for all INR testing until you can be seen in the pharmacy outpatient anticoagulation clinic.

  • Class Schedule: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:30 a.m.
  • Patients will be scheduled into these classes by the pharmacy anticoagluation anticoagulation clinic.
  • Patients will need to bring an up-to-date home medication list
  • Patients on warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®) will have their INR checked during this session unless told otherwise.
