I recently moved to a new state and asked my new cardiologist to continue my prescribed dose of warfarin (two years following aortic valve replacement which I chronicled here). They responded that I have to use their Coumadin clinic in order to get a prescription. I already have a coaguchek and I follow (in my opinion) a better protocol than what they require here (weekly testing with frequent phone calls and paper logging). How can I continue to get my warfarin filled without being monitored by a coumadin clinic? Should I bother shopping around for a new cardiologist or GP willing to do this, or does it just not happen?
