About our urgent care lipid panel test

Typically, there are no symptoms of high cholesterol. To minimize any concerns, Nao Medical offers a test to check your cholesterol. A lipid panel is a simple blood test that determines your cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is a soft, sticky substance that exists throughout your body.

What is a lipid panel test used for?

Total cholesterol is made up of three components: good (HDL) cholesterol, bad (LDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides (a certain type of fat). A lipid panel test is necessary because cholesterol can block the arteries, resulting in strokes or heart disease. So schedule an appointment with Nao Medical as soon as possible to have yourself checked.

About our lab and testing service

With Nao Medical's lab and testing, 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 or group insurance plan is eligible for use. Please dial 911 immediately if your medical problem appears to be life-threatening.
