About strep throat

Strep throat is a type of sore throat that’s caused by a bacterial infection. It’s more common in children but it can affect people of all ages. If untreated, strep throat can cause severe effects, such as kidney infection or rheumatic fever, which can lead to inflamed joints, rash, or heart valve damage.

Urgent care for strep throat

As long as strep throat is treated immediately, it won’t cause long-term effects or complications. If you suspect that you or your child has strep throat, it’s recommended to seek medical care immediately to get an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment. Nao Medical can assess your symptoms and provide treatment at any of our clinics in NYC.

Before booking your appointment please note:

Ensure that your insurance benefits include urgent care or contact us to confirm if your individual/group insurance plan is eligible for use. Please dial 911 immediately if your medical problem appears to be life-threatening.

Can strep throat go away on its own?

Strep throat often goes away within three to seven days, with or without antibiotics. But if you don’t take antibiotics, you’re at a higher risk for complications and could remain contagious for a couple of weeks.

What happens if strep goes untreated?

If a strep goes untreated, you could be at risk for kidney inflammation and rheumatic fever.

How do you know if it’s strep or just a sore throat?

A strep throat infection often involves pain and difficulty in swallowing and a fever that’s 101°F or higher. The common sore throat, on the other hand, involves cough, runny nose, a hoarse or raspy voice, and other cold-like symptoms.

When should you seek emergency care for strep throat?

If your strep throat lasts longer than 10 days with medication and is accompanied by difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, high fever, red rash, or joint pain, you should seek emergency care immediately.

When is a sore throat an emergency?

A sore throat can be considered an emergency if you’re having trouble breathing and if you’re experiencing a very high fever.

What is the difference between emergency and urgent care?

The difference between emergency and urgent care is that emergency rooms in hospitals treat life-threatening conditions and injuries, whereas urgent care clinics treat illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention but are non-life-threatening.

Are your urgent care centers open after hours?

Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.

Should I make an appointment for urgent care?

Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.

Can I go to urgent care for non-emergency?

Yes. You can go to urgent care for consultations, physicals, primary care, lab tests, and more.

Can I pay for urgent care appointment without insurance?

If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.
