I am from out of state visiting in the area. I chose this facility from reading the reviews and roughly knew the area of the location. I made an online appointment. From the moment I walked into the facility, being seen and treated, I have nothing but praise and respect for the staff as well as the care I received. I’m this day and age and just visiting with having an unfortunate reason to be seen/treated I was completely satisfied. A little more pricey than I expected but what can I say? Thank you just the same for your professionalism.

Carbon Health Urgent Care, Alameda, Bridgeside Center - 2671 Blanding Ave
Wait time was good, got in at 1:40pm for my 1:30pm appointment. Staff was friendly and explained things to me. I did kind of get the impression that they were tired of me because I was trying to ask clarifying questions to make sure that later on I will not be thinking about the questions I was afraid to ask :P. It’s very easy for me to just accept what I’m told, and not ask anything, but I’m trying to learn to advocate for myself because it seems like that’s what is needed in healthcare. But I could tell they were definitely getting tired of me asking my dumb questions and just repeating answers they already gave because I was obviously didn’t hear it the first time. I probably need to work on my communication skills because I don’t feel like either of us felt like we were getting through to the other person. It felt like we both felt like we knew what the other person was saying and that they just weren’t willing to hear it.

I tried other clinics like CVS minute clinic not professional and hard to understand language barriers from the caregivers that we’re not doctors that could not show me a professional exam. so , I went to you guys which I was given a five stars exam a professional doctor in a man that has years of wisdom to conduct an examination he does as a pro doctor and was easy to trust . I felt a trust of a doctor of a profession not just a lab that does it for cash with nurses.

My soar throat turned into an ear ache and sinus congestion. Looked for an urgent care clinic nearby and found Instant Urgent Care. Had taken my daughter there once before but she needed an x-ray they couldn’t provide so didn’t experience the full service. Glad I went back. Got a little lucky in that there was only one patient ahead of me. Everything was smooth and efficient. In and out in less than 30 minutes.

STAT MED Urgent Care, Livermore: In-Clinic Visit - 4465 First St, Livermore
1. Sign up/Sign in and Covid test done in a fairly hassle free manner. 2. Jennifer the kind lady who checked me in was super sweet, put my mind at ease and also indulged in having my little one get her BP checked cuz she was soooo curious lol. She earns most of the stars in my review :) 3. The provider I met, Kellie was also easy to talk to and her experience showed well through her diagnosis. The in-clinic treatment provided definitely took away some of my pressing concern. 4. All in all, I’m happy I’ve found a good urgent care so close to home. Amazing though my first experience was, I do hope I won’t be seeing them too frequently..lol!!

I came in one day without an appoint and waited two hours as a walk-in before I had to leave without being tested. I made an appointment through Quest Lab Testing for the next day, showed up on time, got tested easily and was on my way in 15-20 minutes. Staff is friendly and helpful.

San Jose Cholesterol Tests

Cholesterol isn't always a negative thing. It aids in the growth of cells and the production of hormones, among other things. On the other hand, too much cholesterol might be dangerous.

Cholesterol comes from two different places. The liver produces cholesterol, and dietary cholesterol comes from the foods you eat. Cholesterol is found in meat, dairy, and eggs, among other animal products. Foods high in saturated and trans fats may cause your liver to produce more cholesterol than you need, resulting in dangerous cholesterol levels.

High cholesterol increases the risk of heart attack and stroke, which are two of the leading causes of mortality in the United States. In the United States, approximately 38% of people have high total cholesterol levels. Because high cholesterol has no symptoms, it's critical to have your levels checked to ensure they're within normal ranges. Cholesterol levels in children and teenagers should also be checked.

According to the CDC, those over the age of 20 who have a low risk of cardiovascular disease should get their cholesterol checked every five years. Those with risk factors for cardiovascular disease should have their cholesterol checked more frequently. Other risk factors for heart disease

Fortunately, simple lifestyle changes can help you lower your cholesterol. Reduce your intake of saturated fats and eliminate trans fats from your diet as much as feasible. Trans fats are widely found in store-bought cookies and baked goods, and are labeled as "partially hydrogenated vegetable oil" on food labels. Limit your intake of processed foods, especially those heavy in sugar, and consume lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Increase your physical activity by at least three times per week. Any type of physical activity is useful. Instead of taking the elevator during your lunch break, go for a walk. Aim for at least 10,000 steps per day.

Don't smoke, and drink alcohol only in moderation. Not only will these changes help you lower your cholesterol, but they will also improve your cardiovascular health.

Cholesterol Test FAQs

  • Do I need to see a doctor before getting a cholesterol test in San Jose?

    A cholesterol test is often a simple blood test. While you do not need to see a doctor first, it is a good idea to call your doctor's office and ask about the type of test that will be performed. This is because some cholesterol tests need you to fast before taking them.

  • How much do cholesterol tests cost in San Jose?

    A cholesterol test's price is determined by several factors, including the type of test required, the location where the test is administered, and whether or not you have health insurance. For example, a cholesterol test at a walk-in clinic or drugstore could cost around $100.

  • Does insurance cover cholesterol screening?

    Cholesterol testing is commonly performed as part of a yearly physical exam, which is usually covered by insurance. Your insurance plan, on the other hand, may place limitations on cholesterol testing. They might pay for a cholesterol test every five years, for example. You can find out what your policy covers by calling your insurance carrier or looking at your policy papers.

  • How can you tell if you have high cholesterol without a test?

    High cholesterol has no visible indications or symptoms. The only way to know if you have high cholesterol is to have a blood test. Over the age of 35 and 45, men and women should get their cholesterol levels examined. You may be at risk for high cholesterol if you have a BMI of 30 or more, don't get enough exercise, smoke, drink too much alcohol, or consume too much saturated or trans fat.

  • What can I eat the night before a cholesterol test?

    You should avoid eating or drinking anything other than water the night before your cholesterol test if your doctor has recommended you to fast. If your doctor has not recommended you to fast, you can eat and drink normally. Consult your doctor if you're unsure whether or not you should fast.

  • How long should I fast before a cholesterol test?

    Most people must fast for 9 to 12 hours before taking a cholesterol test. Fasting for at least 12 hours prior to your test will assist ensure that a single meal has no impact on your results. All cholesterol tests do not require fasting, so check with your doctor and make sure you follow their instructions.

  • How do I interpret cholesterol blood test results?

    A cholesterol test measures total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol. There may also be triglycerides and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). Total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol should be low, whereas HDL cholesterol should be high. Inquiring with your doctor for assistance in interpreting your results is always a good idea. High total cholesterol may be caused by a higher HDL level, which is actually good. It's vital to understand how your test findings are broken down.

  • What is a normal cholesterol range?

    The unit of measurement for cholesterol is milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). Adults with total cholesterol levels less than 200 mg/dL are generally considered healthy. Blood sugar levels of 240 mg/dL are considered dangerously high. LDL cholesterol levels should be under 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). 160 mg/dL of LDL cholesterol is considered high. HDL levels should be at least 60 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). Low HDL levels of 40 mg/dL or below are linked to an increased risk of heart disease.

  • How can I book a cholesterol test through Solv?

    With Solv, scheduling a cholesterol test is simple. Simply type "cholesterol" into the search box, and when the cholesterol test option appears, select it. You can choose to use an existing location or create a new one. You'll discover a list of providers in your area, as well as available appointment times, on the next page. To schedule an appointment, select a time and location that is convenient for you and fill out the form.

  • Can I do an at home cholesterol testing in San Jose?

    At-home cholesterol testing are possible, but they aren't necessarily accurate or reliable. Pricking your finger with a lancet and transferring a few drops of blood to a test strip are the most common methods for at-home cholesterol testing. Unfortunately, if these tests aren't done appropriately, they can be inaccurate. Furthermore, they usually only measure total cholesterol, which isn't as useful as knowing how your LDL and HDL cholesterol are distributed. For the best results, have the test performed by a certified healthcare provider.
