Why would a doctor order a thyroid panel?
A doctor may order a thyroid panel to help diagnose a thyroid disorder or to monitor an existing thyroid condition.
Is TSH the same as thyroid panel?
TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) is tested as part of a thyroid panel test. The TSH level will help determine if your thyroid gland is functioning as it should.
Do you need to fast before thyroid test?
Most doctors recommend that you fast before a thyroid test because TSH levels are at its highest after a fasting period.
Is a thyroid problem serious?
Too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) and too little thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) are both serious conditions and should be checked and treated by a health care provider.
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.
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.
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.

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!

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.
