What is Hepatitis B?

Caused by a virus that attacks the liver, hepatitis B is a serious disease that can cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and more.
The virus is spread when blood, semen, or another body fluid from an infected person enters the body of someone who is not infected, such as through sexual contact or sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment. Hepatitis B can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby at birth.

About our primary care services

With Nao Medical's primary 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.

How is hepatitis B spread?

Hepatitis B is spread when bloody fluids from an infected person enter the body of uninfected and unvaccinated people. The transmission can be through:

  • Birth
  • Sexual intercourse
  • Sharing syringes and needles
  • Sharing personal items, such as toothbrushes and razors
  • Direct contact with blood or open sores
  • Exposure to infected blood through sharp items, like needles

Can a person spread the hepatitis B virus and not know it?

Yes. A person can spread the hepatitis B virus and not know it because they don’t feel sick and they don’t look sick.

Who is at risk for hepatitis B?

People who are at higher risk for hepatitis B are:

  • Infants born to hepatitis B-positive mothers
  • People who inject drugs
  • Partners of hepatitis B-infected individuals
  • People who engage in same-sex unprotected sex
  • People living with someone with hepatitis B
  • Health care workers who are often exposed to blood
  • Dialysis patients

What should I do if I think I have been exposed to the hepatitis B virus?

If you think you have been exposed to the hepatitis B virus, call or visit a healthcare provider immediately and get tested.

How long does the hepatitis B virus survive outside the body?

The hepatitis B virus can survive outside the body for a minimum of seven days. During that time, it can infect anyone exposed to it.

Does my insurance cover my primary care appointment?

At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.
