We offer an in-office Coumadin monitoring for those patients using Coumadin and Warfarin. We perform a finger stick PT/INR level check as well as a consultation with an RN.
The prothrombin time, or PT, test measures the time it takes your blood to form a clot. This test is also often called protime.
The results of the prothrombin time test may vary from lab to lab, so healthcare providers use a ratio called the INR (international normalized ratio) to be able to account for the differences.
