Service Details

What is a uric acid test?

A uric acid test is either a blood test or urine test that is used to measure uric acid levels in a patient’s body. This helps diagnose gout, kidney stones, and kidney failure.

About our urgent care uric acid tests

Uric acid is a normal waste produced when the body breaks down a certain type of chemical that’s found in the cells and is often derived from certain foods and drinks. To check if your body has normal levels of uric acid, you can get a uric acid test at all Nao Medical (formerly Statcare) clinics in NYC.

About our urgent care service

With Nao Medical's urgent care, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We're open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

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.

FAQ

Why would a doctor order a uric acid test?

Doctors often order uric acid tests if they suspect a high uric acid level on their patients, such as those with gout.

What happens if you have high uric acid?

If you have high levels of uric acid in your blood, you may have hyperuricemia. This can lead to several uric acid crystals, which can settle in the joints and cause gout, which is a painful type of arthritis, or in the kidneys, where kidney stones can form.

What is the main cause of uric acid?

The main causes of high uric acid are obesity, diabetes, diuretics (water pills), alcoholic drinks, and uric acid-rich foods.

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.

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 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.
