Providing Sore Throat Treatment to Patients of All Ages in Glastonbury, CT

The dreaded sore throat. It’s something that everyone experiences at some point in their life, and nobody looks forward to. Oftentimes, it’s a precursor to a head cold and will go away on its own after a few days. Sometimes, though, a sore throat could be an indication of strep throat, which is a bacterial infection that may require antibiotics. If your sore throat feels especially severe or if it’s accompanied by a fever, swollen tonsils, or red spots on the roof of your mouth, come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Glastonbury, Connecticut, for sore throat treatment. We’re open seven days per week with extended evening hours for your convenience.

Treating Strep Throat

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, all of our patients are seen by experienced medical providers who practice individualized, compassionate care. The practitioner you see will learn about the symptoms you’re experiencing and how long you’ve been feeling under the weather. A rapid strep test may then be ordered, which we can perform right in our urgent care center quickly and easily. The practitioner will swab the back of your throat to collect a sample and send the swab to our on-site diagnostic lab. Within 15 minutes, the results of your strep test should be ready and from there, the practitioner will develop a comprehensive treatment plan, which may include antibiotics.

COVID-19 & Sore Throats

If you’re worried that your sore throat could be a symptom of COVID-19, you can count on PhysicianOne Urgent Care to provide you with the testing you need. To lessen your exposure, we’ll first evaluate your symptoms during a Virtual Visit, which will take place over a secure videoconferencing platform. Then, if appropriate, we’ll register you for a curbside COVID-19 test that can be done at your convenience. We offer these tests seven days per week.

Sore throat treatment can be found at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Glastonbury. Simply stop by today or expedite your visit by checking in online.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
