Request an Appointment

Pro-time (Anticoagulation)

Your provider may prescribe a blood thinner medication to you and set you up with a series of reoccurring appointments with our pro-time (anticoagulation) nurses. At Grand Itasca, we have registered nurses dedicated to caring for these needs. The nurses will provide ongoing education and monitoring of your international normalized ratio (INR) ensure the dosing of your medication is working as it should.

Preventive Cardiology

Did you know that early stages of heart and vascular disease (cardiovascular disease) can be detected long before symptoms appear? Early detection allows our expert health care providers to help you prevent advanced heart disease later in life.

Consider making an appointment with our cardiology specialists if either of the following describes you:

  • You are an adult who has risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Risk factors include cholesterol elevations, diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated weight, inactive living, and history of tobacco use.
  • You don’t have traditional risk factors but have a strong family history of cardiovascular disease, which may mean you have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease.
