Sarasota Rapid Strep Test
Sarasota Rapid Strep Test at AFC Urgent Care
AFC Sarasota provides on-site rapid strep throat testing. Strep throat, aka streptococcal pharyngitis, is a bacterial infection that causes extremely sore throats and swollen lymph nodes. The infection is transmitted through inhaling an infected person's droplets (coughing, sneezing, etc.). If strep is left untreated it can cause complications such as kidney inflammation or rheumatic fever.
Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
