About our lab and testing service
Before booking your appointment, please note:
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?
In most cases, doctors will recommend fasting for at least 10 hours before a lipid panel test.
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.
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.
