If you think you have this illness, it’s time to get a strep throat test.
What Is Strep Throat?
While viruses cause many sore throats, strep throat is from bacteria. This is highly contagious to others around you due to the bacteria being spread by coughing or sneezing. You can even catch strep throat if you drink after someone who is sick.
Testing For Strep
This type of bacteria needs an antibiotic treatment to get it cleared out of your system. That’s why our clinic provides strep testing. Let’s face it. When you’re not feeling well or your child is unwell, you want answers fast. That’s what we do. The strep test takes just a few seconds, and we can have results in-house in a short time. You can receive the confirmation and be on your way with your prescription sometimes faster than getting an appointment at your regular physician.
