6 items. To interact with these items, press Control-Option-Shift-Right Arrow
  • Question: How is strep throat diagnosed?

    Answer:

    Strep throat is typically diagnosed through a rapid strep test or a throat culture, where a sample is collected from the throat to identify the presence of Streptococcus bacteria.

  • Question: How long does it take for antibiotics to work for strep throat?

    Answer:

    Antibiotics for strep throat typically show improvement within 24 to 48 hours, and it's crucial to complete the full course of medication as prescribed by a health care provider.

  • Question: Is strep throat contagious?

    Answer:

    Strep throat is highly contagious, and infected people should take precautions like frequent hand-washing and avoiding close contact with others to prevent spreading the illness.

  • Question: Are there complications from not treating strep throat?

    Answer:

    Untreated strep throat can lead to other conditions like rheumatic fever, kidney inflammation and the spread of the infection to other parts of the body. It’s important to seek treatment if you think you may have strep throat.

  • Question: Can I get strep throat multiple times?

    Answer:

    Yes, individuals can get strep throat more than once. There are multiple strains of the Streptococcus bacteria, and past infection does not create immunity.

  • Question: When should I seek treatment for possible strep throat?

    Answer:

    You should get a strep test and any necessary treatment if your symptoms are severe, persist for more than a few days or if there are signs of complications, such as difficulty breathing or swallowing.

I came to urgent care tonight and was met with great customer service from staff and doctors who helped me. I was surprised that I could pick up my son's medicine on the spot at the location.

This urgent care location is the absolute best! My wait time was super minimal; by the time I finished the paperwork, I was being called back by the nurse. Every single staff member here is so amazing, knowledgeable and super friendly. I highly recommend coming here and will continue to come here for all my medical care needs.

Everyone has been very kind. I’ve even overheard the doctors with other patients, very empathetic and caring. Not a long wait, but it’s a Sunday evening. I’m on vacation, and they were very accommodating. I even got the medicine I needed right away from them.
