Rapid Strep Testing in Norwalk, CT
When you’re dealing with a nagging cough and a sore throat, it can be difficult to understand whether your symptoms are just the common cold or strep throat.
At AFC Urgent Care Norwalk, we administer rapid strep tests to determine if you have strep throat.
Some reasons you may want to have a rapid strep test administered include:
- If you’re experiencing symptoms of an infection
- If you’ve been exposed to other viruses
- If you’re at risk for further health complications
For a rapid strep test, the throat and tonsils are swabbed to collect bacteria from the infected area for testing. The bacteria is then analyzed at our on-site lab to determine whether Group A bacteria is causing your sore throat.
Our walk-in urgent care clinic administers rapid strep testing seven days a week – no appointment necessary! Our on-site lab enables us to deliver you quick results without you having to drive all over town to receive the care you need. We work with a number of health insurances as well as offer low-cost rapid strep tests for those without.
