Helping You Navigate Your Healthcare Journey
If you are taking warfarin, a blood-thinning medication that can help prevent blood clots or strokes, it’s very important that we help you find the right dosage and that you get regular checkups to make sure it’s working properly. That’s why the Hilton Head Regional Healthcare Anticoagulation Clinic is dedicated to monitoring and managing patients who take warfarin.
