What is the difference between emergency and urgent care?
The difference between emergency and urgent care is that emergency rooms in hospitals treat life-threatening conditions and injuries, whereas urgent care clinics treat illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention but are non-life-threatening.
When should you seek medical attention for mental health?
A person should seek medical attention from a mental health professional when experiencing symptoms that may affect the ability to study, work, or interact with others.
How do I know if I need a psychiatrist or psychologist?
If you’re experiencing challenges in your life, in work, or at school, and you need to understand and manage your thoughts and behaviors, a psychologist can help you with those. If you’re dealing with more complex symptoms that may require medications, you may request an urgent care doctor to refer you to a psychiatrist.
Can I go to urgent care to have my mental health checked?
Yes. An urgent care has mental health professionals and health care providers that can perform mental health tests and consultations to help diagnose mental disorders.
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.
Can I pay for my urgent care appointment without insurance?
If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.

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.

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.

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 would like to thank a receptionist for being beyond kind and helpful. I came this Saturday morning, and she was the only one at the desk. Thank you so much for being a beautiful positive person. All the staff was also excellent.
