What does a lipid panel test for?
A lipid panel test is a group of blood tests that measures the amount of cholesterol, triglycerides, and other fats.
Is fasting required for lipid panels?

What are lipids?
Lipids are fats or fat-like substances. Lipids in the body include fatty acids, oils, cholesterol, and waxes.
What causes lipid disorders?
If your body does not have enough enzymes to break down lipids, they may build up in the blood. Although lipids are important for cell health, too much of them may cause health issues.
Who should be screened for lipid disorders?
Men aged 35 years and up and women aged 45 and up are recommended to get screened for lipid disorders especially if they are at risk for coronary heart disease.
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.

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.

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.

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!
