Getting Tested and Treated for Strep Throat in New Port Richey

Bacterial infections can present themselves as scary, especially if you have no prior experience with the symptoms. Signs of strep throat, for instance, often include severe sore throat, redness on the interior of the throat with rough white patches, swollen tonsils and feelings of a closed throat, difficulty swallowing food or drinking liquids, and symptoms of a severe cold, like high fevers, chills, and headaches. While some symptoms vary in severity from one person to the next, strep throat can be a dangerous bacterial infection if left untreated. It can cause damage to your tonsils, the tissue in your throat, and your vocal cords, leading to worse complications over time. For that reason, you should opt for testing and treatment at Polmed Primary Care & Walk-in Clinic in New Port Richey if you feel what could be the first symptoms of strep throat.

Treatment for strep throat is usually rest, hydration, and antibiotics. However, the dosage of antibiotics depends on the severity of the illness. Young children and older adults risk developing severe strep throat symptoms because of weaker immune systems. They will require stronger doses and longer action plans for antibiotics.

How Long Does Strep Throat Take to Go Away?

Strep throat usually goes away within a week of proper treatment with strong antibiotics. The incubation period of strep throat is 2 to 5 days, so patients are the most contagious and should avoid contact with others. Patients can remain contagious for up to three weeks if left untreated before symptoms subside.

We Love Our Customers!

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
