What is the normal HBA1C level?
The normal HBA1C level for people with diabetes is between 4% to 5.6%. If you have between 5.7% to 6.4%, you may have prediabetes. If it’s over 6.5%, it means that you have diabetes.
Does an HBA1C test require fasting?
An HBA1C test does not require you to fast before the test since only a part of the red blood cells are tested.
How can I lower my HBA1C naturally?
To lower your HBA1C naturally, you need to track your carb intake and measure your portions. Aside from a healthy diet plan, you also need to exercise and maintain normal body weight.
What happens if HBA1C is high?
If your HBA1C level is high, you’re at risk of heart disease, kidney disease, mental health problems, bone loss, and fatigue. A low level, on the other hand, may reflect biological factors such as inflammation, decreased liver function, or red blood cell markers.
How long does it take to receive blood test results?
Blood test results may take a few minutes to several days, depending on the type of blood test you get. The health care provider will inform you about when the results will be available and what to expect regarding the results.
Are urgent care centers open after hours?
Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.
Should I make an appointment for urgent care?
Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.
Does insurance plan cover all urgent care services?
Most urgent care services are covered by insurance. Please contact your insurance plan provider directly for specific questions related to your coverage, deductible, & plan.
Can I go to urgent care without insurance?
Yes. If you need urgent care and you have no insurance, we offer affordable rates for all health care services we offer.

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.

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!

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.
