This program is designed to educate and manage cholesterol levels. Lowering cholesterol levels is important for all regardless of age, sex, race, or previous heart disease. Having an abnormal level of fat in the blood increases our risk for a heart attack or stroke.

There are two types of cholesterol: “good” and “bad.” It’s important to understand the difference, and to know the levels of “good” and “bad” cholesterol in your blood. Too much of one type – or not enough of another – can put you at risk for coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke.

Cholesterol Management Program provides:

  • Cholesterol blood test is done with a simple finger stick with immediate results
  • Appropriate medical therapy is prescribed or adjusted
  • Education on various types of cholesterol and cholesterol medication
  • Education on dietary and exercise guidelines

This program is designed to educate and manage anticoagulants. Anticoagulants are prescribed to patients with specific medical conditions that put them at risk for developing blood clots. An anticoagulant helps reduce clots from forming in the blood which can cause strokes, heart attacks, or other serious conditions such as blood clots in the legs or lungs. Warfarin, Jantoven, and Coumadin are all examples of anticoagulants. Anticoagulants are different from other kinds of medicines. The effect of anticoagulants on your clotting system can vary from week to week even if you take the same amount of medicine. You will need your blood tested regularly while taking this medication. Anticoagulation Management Program provides:

  • One on one session with a licensed practical nurse
  • INR test which is done by a simple finger stick with immediate results
  • Appropriate medical therapy is prescribed or adjusted
  • Education on dietary recommendation and interactions with medication

Patients learn about alternative anticoagulants and how to recognize any potential problems, about drug to drug interactions while nurses monitor for side effects and patient compliance.

  • Onsite blood testing with immediate results
  • Education on medication, required testing
  • Medication management
  • One on one session with a licensed practical nurse

Amiodarone/Multaq/Tikosyn/Sotalol can be very effective in treating your heart condition. Unfortunately, some unwanted side effects from the medication may occur as a result.

We offer regularly scheduled clinics with a device company representative to check your pacemaker or defibrillator on a regular scheduled basis, as directed by your physician. In addition to your scheduled device checks, your physician now has the capability of monitoring your defibrillator or pacemaker from home with a remote communicator. The patient management system is used to remotely communicate with your device and send data to a central database. The patient management system is designed to tell your physician within 24 hours if alert conditions are detected. This can be done once a week or daily depending on the capabilities of your device. The devices also have the capability of detecting early signs of heart failure.
