What is Comprehensive Clinic?

Comprehensive clinic (comp clinic) is an important part of your bleeding disorder care. It is a special “well” clinic visit similar to a yearly physical. This visit includes a team of experts to talk about your bleeding disorder and how it affects your life. You will have a comp clinic visit every 1-5 years depending on your health and diagnosis.
