Sore Throat

At Instant Urgent Care, we specialize in treating a number of upper respiratory illnesses and viral infections, including strep throat and sore throats.

To accurately diagnose and treat strep throat, we will conduct a physical exam that will include:

  • A lighted instrument to look at the throat, ears and nasal passages
  • Check for swollen glands (lymph nodes)
  • Listen to breathing with a stethoscope

We will also run a throat swab test to sample secretions, which will check for streptococcal bacteria, the cause of strep throat.

Our on-site lab enables us to deliver you with quick results, so you can provide you with the care you need in a timely manner.  We will determine whether your results are positive and negative, and guide you with the right steps to get on a path of recovery.
