Sore Throat

A sore throat is one of the most common reasons for a doctor's visit. Generally, it's difficult to diagnose strep throat just by looking at the back of the throat, as the cause may be viral. We offer a Rapid Strep throat swab, covered by OHIP, which can determine the presence of group A strep, the bacteria responsible for strep throat. Results are available in 5 minutes and antibiotics can be prescribed accordingly.
