Special Services:

 

Weight Loss Program – Patients interested in losing weight are screened by our Nurse Practitioner. We walk you through the program and help you order your first month of meal replacements. We periodically monitor your progress and blood tests to ensure that you are making progress and to adjust your medications if appropriate.

Coumadin Clinic – For non HMO patients that are prescribed Coumadin or warfarin because of cardiac conditions, we provided a nurse run clinic to make sure that blood coagulation levels are in the proper range for their condition.

Heart Failure Clinic – Patients with Class III, IV or V heart failure are closely following by their physician and our Nurse Practitioner. Frequent visits and blood tests are done to make sure that patients are stable or improving.

Device Clinic – For patients that have a pacemaker or implanted cardiac defibrillator (ICD), we query the devices on a regular basis to gain information on the device, such as battery life, as well as clinical information about the patient.
