High HDL w high LDL

My overall cholesterol is 251. My HDL is 66 and my LDL is 175.

Should I be concerned? Does the high HDL balance out the LDL? Am I at high risk? My dr. Said there was not much we could do and he thought I didn't need to go on pills given the high HDL. Should I get a 2nd opinion?
