In brief: Yes

Those are fantastic numbers.
In general you want the HDL (goos cholesterol) to be high and LDL and triglyceride to be low. Goal for each of the numbers depends on the patient's existing medical condition. Foe e.g. If she has diabetes or coronary disease her LDL should be lower than 100.
