Strep Throat Testing

 

Brentview Medical Urgent Care Clinic is equipped with Rapid Strep Throat Testing to let you know within minutes if you have a throat infection known as strep throat. Brentview Medical physicians do this rapid strep throat test on anyone suspected of having strep throat. Within 2 minutes of swabbing the tonsils, the test shows whether the patient is having a strep throat infection. If strep throat is suspected or confirmed, our physicians may also decide to send off further testing including a throat culture/sensitivity and blood work. Strep throat is a serious infection and antibiotics must be taken as soon as possible since untreated strep throat can leave the patient with long term problems. For this reason, if you are feeling unwell and have a throat ache that has lasted more than a couple days, come to our urgent care center to get evaluated.
