Cancer & Coumadin Clinic

Compassionate care when you need it most

At St. Anthony Hospital, we're part of cancer and heart disease successes. And we do our work against these two diseases in one clinic. Some days, the clinic is home to our cancer treatment services. On the others, the clinic is available to those taking Coumadin (warfarin) for monitoring.

Cancer treatment services

Medical oncology care is performed in our Cancer Clinic under the direction of Robert Quackenbush, MD. Dr. Quackenbush provides vital cancer care services, including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Diagnostic services
  • Follow-up care
  • Treatment consultations

There is no need to drive out of town to meet with an oncologist. Dr. Quackenbush can handle many of your cancer care needs in his office at St. Anthony Hospital. And should you need the help of another specialist to get better, we can refer you to other departments within the hospital, including radiologysurgery and physical therapy.

Coumadin care

Coumadin (warfarin) is a prescription medication that is used to keep harmful blood clots from forming. It's often called a "blood thinner," but it doesn't actually thin the blood. It just interferes with the body's ability to clot blood.

In our Coumadin Clinic, we monitor people who are using Coumadin (warfarin) to control heart disease or vascular disease. We offer a quick, one-poke blood test to determine clotting times. If we spot a problem, we can work with your doctor to adjust your Coumadin (warfarin) dose. All of the work is performed by a registered nurse and a pharmacist.
