The UAB Coagulation Service


Is dedicated to meeting the coagulation medicine needs of the Southeast.

We unify the collective knowledge of Pathology, Internal Medicine, Hematology, Oncology, and Laboratory Medicine in a university-based medical center to advise on the diagnosis and management of both hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders.

Experienced senior technologists staff our special coagulation laboratory and are available to advise on all technical issues.
We accept specimens from any institution via our Outreach Department and provide clinical consultation on laboratory interpretation (contact
Marisa B. Marques, MD). New patients with coagulation disorders may contact the Kirklin Clinic Department of Hematology, 205-934-5077 for an appointment.  Returning patients may call 801-8415.
