Brandon and the two providers Stephanie and James had the BEST bedside manners with my 4yo son as he was examed and swabbed. The care is second to none, we were in and out in under an hour as walk-ins, and registration is always a breeze! Thank you P1UC!

It was my first time at PhysicianOne Urgent care at the Wolcott location. It was clean, staff was friendly and the service was fast. I would recommend this location. The only thing I would recommend changing is the receptionist at the front desk asking me in front of the entire office why I was there? This question is already being answered through the sign in process. I’m definitely going back it’s close to home and I feel heard about my concerns.

Latest Strep Test Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)

Strep Test FAQs

  • How long does a strep test take?

    A strep test typically takes only a few minutes. The strep A test is performed with a throat swab, while the strep B test is performed with a cotton swab or a urine sample. Depending on the procedure utilized, your healthcare professional can tell you how long your strep test will take.

  • What happens if you test positive for group B strep?

    Adults rarely have signs or sickness from Group B strep, but it can be harmful for newborn babies. Antibiotics are routinely administered to women who test positive for group B strep during pregnancy to prevent the infection from being transmitted to the baby as it travels through the birth canal. Antibiotics are not required for women with group B strep who are having a scheduled Cesarean section since the baby will not be exposed to the germs in the birth canal.

  • How much does a strep test cost in Connecticut?

    The cost of a strep test is determined by a number of factors, including provider rates, the type of test (throat swab, vaginal swab, or urinalysis), geographic region, and whether or not your health plan covers this treatment. The easiest method to find out how much a strep test will cost is to get an estimate from your health insurance company or the step test company.

  • Does insurance cover strep testing in Connecticut?

    Most health insurance plans will pay the cost of strep testing, especially if your doctor believes the test is medically required based on your symptoms and current health situation. To discover more about your coverage and benefits, contact your insurance carrier directly, or ask your strep testing provider if they can run a complimentary insurance benefits check on your behalf.

  • How do they test for strep throat in Connecticut?

    The strep A test can be used to diagnose strep throat. Your healthcare provider will first ask you to lean back in your chair and open your mouth wide. Then they'll take a tissue sample from the back of your throat with a long cotton swab. The quick strep A test and the normal strep A test both use this testing procedure.

  • How long does it take to get strep test results in Connecticut?

    The quick test for strep A offers results in 10 to 20 minutes, whereas the usual test for strep A takes 24 to 48 hours. The results of a strep B test are usually available within 24 to 48 hours. You can get a better indication of when you should expect your findings from your doctor or the strep test provider.

  • What is a rapid strep test?

    Only group A strep can be diagnosed with a fast strep test. Antigens are substances that cause an immunological response, and this test looks for them. A rapid strep test gives you results in minutes rather than days, and it's done the same manner as a regular strep test. Using a throat swab as a test.

  • How accurate is the rapid strep test?

    A reliable result can be obtained using a quick strep test. If the fast test results are negative and the patient is suffering many symptoms of strep throat, some clinicians may order a traditional strep A test. A normal throat culture test for strep A is more accurate than a quick test for strep A, but it takes longer to get the results.

  • Where should I get a strep test in Connecticut?

    Many healthcare practitioners, including your primary care physician and urgent care clinics, can administer strep testing. If you're pregnant, a specialist like a midwife or an OB-GYN may do the strep B test for you or send you to a lab that does. You can also use Solv to identify a lab in your neighborhood that offers high-quality strep tests and schedule a same-day appointment.

  • How can I book a strep test through Solv?

    Enter "strep test" or "strep throat" into the Search area on our webpage, then choose your location from the dropdown menu. Solv will provide you a list of top-rated strep testing providers in your region.

Recent Strep Test Reviews (8)

I went in for a strep and COVID test and they were incredibly quick and kind. There was no wait when I used Solv to pre-book a time, and the test results were rapid. This is the first urgent care clinic that I’ve been to that has really listened to me. They prescribed antibiotics without doing a culture for strep (I have a history of negative rapid strep tests but positive cultures and it sucks having to be miserable to 2-5 more days to find out I do in fact have strep). Overall they really paid attention to me and my concerns. I didn’t even know this clinic existed but now that I do that’s where I’ll go for all of my urgent care needs!

- Verified patient on 1/18

The low rating for bedside manner and care was because I was told you only had one strep test left and it was assumed it would come back negative . I guess doctors are psychic. I was put off by this and wasn't impressed. But I have had better experience here and will keep you in mind.

- Verified patient on 7/12

Friendly staff, very attentive, the PA and MA Listened to what I was experiencing, a Covid test and strep test were taken. The Medical Assistant explained both tests prior to and during and after. The provider suggested Mucinex, Covid test was negative. I have been there before and I will continue to go there

- Verified patient on 10/15

Compaired to the 17 years of not getting a proper CFS diagnosis, it was a pleasure to get a strep test that took 10 minutes and not have to argue over the value of a second round of antibiotics. When you know you still have a bug. Refreshing change

- Verified patient on 2/24

I really didn’t feel like my son was checked throughly. After a negative covid and strep test we were told it was viral. Never checked anything else. Very disappointed with the dr that day.

- Verified patient on 11/20

I made an online appointment and ended up being there for a little more than an hour just for a strep test. Other than the wait time, I definitely recommend Urgent Care.

- Verified patient on 3/10

I was there with my son who had strep. I needed a PCR test too because I am a volunteer at the school. The staff could not have been more helpful.

Waited almost an hour just to get swabbed to for strep

Connecticut Strep Tests

Strep tests are frequently used to determine if you have group A or group B strep. Group A strep is a bacteria that causes strep throat, which is a sore throat illness. The bacteria Group B strep is found in the vaginal area, as well as the digestive and urinary tracts, but it rarely produces symptoms.

If you have signs of strep throat, such as a painful throat, difficulty swallowing, fever, and enlarged lymph nodes, your doctor may request a strep A test. A rapid strep test or a regular strep test can both be used to identify Strep A, and both are done in the same way.

You will be asked to tilt your head back and open your mouth wide during a strep A test. The healthcare professional will use a tongue depressor to gently keep your tongue down while taking a tissue sample from the back of your throat with a lengthy swab. The strep A test is quick and painless, but it may cause some discomfort. The fast strep test yields results in minutes, while the normal test takes one to two days.

Only women who are 36 to 37 weeks pregnant are routinely tested for strep B. Group B strep can be transferred to a baby when it travels through the birth canal since it lives in the vaginal and rectum. The strep B test can be done with a swab or a urine sample.

You or your doctor will use a cotton swab to gather tissue and fluid samples from your vaginal and rectum during a strep B swab test. Your doctor will ask you to urinate into a sterile cup for a strep B urine test. Your sample will then be sent to a laboratory for additional investigation, with findings arriving in one to two days.

If your strep test is positive, your doctor will work with you to determine the best course of action. Antibiotics are commonly used to treat strep A and strep B infections. Antibiotics are routinely given through an IV line to a mother with strep B during delivery to prevent the infection from spreading to her baby.
