How do you test for monkeypox?
The NYC Health department requires testing that involves taking a swab of a sore or blood test done only by a medical provider, and that patients wait for their results isolated from others to prevent potential outbreak.
Nao Medical lab testing for monkeypox
If you have been in close contact with someone infected with monkeypox or a new or unexplained rash you may perceive as monkeypox, book an appointment or call ahead of time so that we can prepare for your arrival.
Please describe your symptoms honestly and let your medical provider know you are worried about monkeypox.
Once you’ve arrived you’ll be placed in an isolated room for swab testing. This helps to ensure not only your safety but our staff and patients as well. Your results will be provided to you (tentatively) in the next 24-48 hours.
Before booking your appointment please note:
Ensure that your insurance benefits include urgent care or contact us to confirm if your individual/group insurance plan is eligible for use. Please dial 911 immediately if your medical problem appears to be life-threatening.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.
