When you have a bleeding
or clotting disorder, a specialized health
care team can help you in the diagnosis
and treatment of these coagulation disorders.
The Central Virginia Center for Coagulation
Disorders at the Virginia Commonwealth University
Health System is dedicated to working with
patients and families in providing state-of-the-art,
