This service includes a Rapid Strep A Test for one person. The test will be administered at your location (home or office) by one of our registered mobile nurses. We use a rapid antigen test to obtain a result in 15-20 minutes. Upon completion of the test, the nurse will verbally communicate your results.
Schedule your appointment today to know if your symptoms are caused by (Strep A) infection.
What is Strep A?
Group A Streptococcus, commonly referred to as Strep A, is a highly contagious bacterial infection that can cause a variety of other illnesses. These infections range from relatively minor illnesses to severe and potentially life-threatening conditions. It is important to understand the various infections associated with Strep A, including their symptoms, risk factors, treatment options, and preventive measures. Such infections include, but are not limited to:
Streptococcal Toxic Shock Syndrome
Routine testing is an important part of the treatment and prevention journey.

How is the test performed?
The nurse will perform the test by collecting a throat swab sample and processing it via the appropriate medical device.
How do I know if I should test for Strep A?
Signs and symptoms of strep throat can include:
Throat pain that usually comes on quickly
Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus
Tiny red spots on the area at the back of the roof of the mouth (soft or hard palate)
Swollen, tender lymph nodes in your neck
Nausea or vomiting, especially in younger children
It’s possible for you or your child to have many of these signs and symptoms but not have strep throat. The cause of these signs and symptoms could be a viral infection or some other illness. That’s why your doctor generally tests specifically for strep throat.
It’s also possible for you to be exposed to a person who carries strep but shows no symptoms.
