Is It a Sore Throat or Strep Throat?

One of our first steps in the sore throat treatment process is to determine if you are dealing with a more serious bacterial infection called strep throat. While sore throats and step throats have similar symptoms, there are a few key differentiators. Some of the common signs of strep throat include:

  • White spots or patches at the back of the throat
  • Swollen or red tonsils
  • Rash
  • Headache
  • Ear infection
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Not having any other cold symptoms, such as a runny nose, congestion, or cough

We’ll likely order a rapid strep test to diagnose your condition, and since we have an on-site clinical lab, we can have the results ready within minutes. After that, we’ll develop a comprehensive treatment plan aimed at helping you feel better faster.

"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."
