Sooooo fast! So easy! And we didn’t have to wait in a waiting room!!! I was blown away. Staff was so friendly and helped us feel at ease and my daughter feel comfortable as well. It was amazing. Check in was easy paper work was somewhat confusing, only buscase I had a question regarding the bill and didn’t feel like I could ask because we were in the room and not out front but I’d rather be in the room and not a waiting room so over all not bad. Loved it. Will come back if we have another situation requiring urgent care!!

I like that I can schedule an appointment online. Once we arrive, the wait time is not long. The front office staff are friendly and helpful and so are the nurses and doctors. The doctors listen to all your concerns and go through all the symptoms and don't rush through the visit. They are compassionate to the patients. I greatly appreciate everyone for a good experience while trying to get the care needed.

I booked my appointment online in advance and my info was already in their system from prior visit at another location. Once front desk confirmed I was a cash payment patient ( no insurance yet) she was hesitant to move forward with my appointment. She went in the back to check with someone and came back and said they could go ahead and see me and offered a discount membership plan that would lessen expenses and tests. That was my only complaint- were they going to try and turn me away had I not agreed to the plan?

First time patient at this facility as my primary care provider was booked and our insurance had just changed. I wanted to be seen, evaluated, diagnosed and not have to wait excessively long plus go through the hoops of being a “new patient.” That’s what I received in a professional timely manner. The physical therapist told me I was displaying signs and symptoms of XYZ. That diagnosis was confirmed by the medical staff. A prescription and advise as what to do in the immediate future plus in the long range. Staff at front desk were helpful. Highly recommend. A retired RN

I love bringing my kids here for fast immediate answers when they are sick. The doctors here don’t stay long but when there are good ones they are really good ones. Tonight 03/10/2022 at 10:00pm the doctor that helped us at the act Fair location was AMAZING she was so nice to my daughter and knew exactly what was wrong. Even when my daughter started crying she calmed her exactly how I would have it was very comforting to see and experience. Will continue to bring my kids here for the great service I receive almost every time.

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)
Oct 28, 2022
Flu-related hospitalizations nationwide have risen dramatically in recent weeks, reaching levels historically not seen until much later in flu season, according to data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (NBC News)

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 Texas?

    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 Texas?

    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 Texas?

    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 Texas?

    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 Texas?

    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. Find the physician you wish to see, then click "Call now" to schedule a strep test appointment, or go to the provider's profile for more information.

I woke up with a killer sore throat and ears hurting. Looked on line and saw there was a short wait time at this location, which is close to my home. Signed in on line and drove to it. Was quickly and politely checked in, waited less than 10 minutes. Was taken to a room for vitals and a quick strep test. Waited 15 minutes for results and saw a Nurse practitioner. He was so kind, listened and reassured me. He said I needed and antibiotic but also asked if I wanted a shot. Told him I wanted whatever would help me get well quickly. He explained which meds he was prescribing and what they would do. I was back in my car and home in less than an hour after I left.

I was here last fall For a Covid test. Dr Daniel Good was Dr. great bedside manner nice. Introduced himself right away. This time I was seen by a lady. Nice but never introduced herself. Seemed to think I just had an allergic rhinitis. Have very red throat. Could barely Swallow. Felt like strep. She did agree to send a 2nd swab to patholog. Left. Room so CMA came in and did swab and I asked her the dr name and she tells me the lady was a PA. So I felt like she just doesn’t identify herself so no one knows she is not an MD. A little disturbing. I am a BSN RN so I am somewhat picky about titles and representation. The CMA Gisela was extremely efficient.

They were great! My daughter tried to to go to another place earlier today for a covid test and was told that she was fine had allergies and they would not give her a test. We are traveling (flying) to a wedding in 8 days and really would like a test to be certain all is alright. BSA Care X-press was wonderful. They took great care of her and gave her the test (which was negative) and gave her a z-pack so her illness would not turn to strep or sinus infection. They were so concerned and helpful. I would definitely recommend them. They took us as a walk-in and we only had a 30 min wait.

- Verified patient on 9/30

The doctor is nice and friendly and has always been accurate. Have taken my kids here every time they’re sick and can’t get an appointment with their pediatrician or in the weekends. Office upfront has always been nice as good. The nurse is a different story, if she wants to work with kids she should be a lot nicer and friendly with them, and not so rough with them. She left my kid crying and hurt after she took a strep throat test but was too rough while taking it. Unfortunately, have seen her there several times so Thai could be a reason why I might start thinking about taking them to a different place.

To: Christina and Seema, Words can not express how GREAT, LOVING, PATIENT and KINDHEARTED the staff was to my daughter and myself. My daughter was seen for a sore throat and she was swabbed for Strep Throat and in my opinion she was the worst patient ever and Christina and Seema Ahmed,APRN,FNP endured her while she kicked and screamed and put up a fight. I was so embarrassed due to my daughter’s actions and they not only console her but they consoled me as well! They were the epitome of professionalism and for that I can’t say THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING enough to these ladies!!! Thank you J.Walker💕 FYI…Wait time was minimal

It was pretty fast ..we didn't have to wait as long only for them to tell me that my daughter's ear pain might be from allergies and she was to start up on nasel spray and allergy medicine. The next morning I get a phone call from school to pick her up, due to severe ear pain only to take her back to another appointment @ Dr. Office where she was given antibiotics for an ear infection and also swab for Flu, strep, and covid-19 due to her getting a fever.

- Verified patient on 10/2

Wait time was very long. There was one person ahead of me waiting and it still took them 45 minutes to see me. That’s a long time to make a 2 year old wait. Doctor was nice, kinda vague. Wish she had done some tests or something. Just said it was an ear infection and sent us on our way. My baby had other symptoms so I wish she would have flu/strep/covid tested at least.

- Verified patient on 10/25

We went in for a COVID test and they did COVID/Flu and Strep after initial exam. The staff was so very patient - our oldest (7 yrs) was afraid and worked for over 30 minutes to get them to NOT swab her nose! The staff never lost patience with her and finally helped her see that it was necessary and got it done so quickly she was surprised. Thank you, ALL!

This place was a life saver! I am so glad I found them online. My son's pediatrician was booked and he needed to be tested for covid and strep. The wait time was completely reasonable considering the circumstances. Video calls with the doctor and then curbside testing in your car. The staff was extremely kind and you can tell they care. I would refer this place to anyone!

My Grand daughter has been very ill this past week. Naturally, we were fearful it was COVID. The provider screened her for COVID, STREP, all negative. She was thorough, compassionate, expert. Praise be, not COVID or strep. Saigey is better today. They treated our family so respectfully, so caring, and did not leave one stone unturned. I am a Registered Nurse, 34 years in. I highly recommend.

I had Dr. Kilbourn, she was very professional and tended to my needs. The nurse who performed my nasal Covid19 test was awesome. She also performed a flu test and strep test and talked me through every step. I would recommend the facility, and I have used them twice before and had a pretty good experience. They are fast, clean, and professional.

My technician Macy “I believe that was her name” was by far the best persons to ever give my special needs daughter a strep test. She also had amazing bed side manners with my son on a prior visit today . The front desk receptionist also went above and beyond for me today. Thank you ladies!!

Your medical assistant (lvn?) need to be better trained on how to swab for strept test. She was very kind but she swabbed for much longer than is required and it was painful for my child as her throat was already tender and sore. A strept swab should only take a coupe seconds.

The provider & staff are friendly. The clinic is clean. No wait time. I am blessed the nurse practitioner advised I should also take the flu & strep test along with the Covid. I tested positive for the flu. Happy my Covid & Strep tests were negative. Love the staff.

Dr. Chi was kind to talk to my daughter and get how she was feeling making her feel important and heard about her symptoms. He was also very thorough with being able to check her throat over the phone which was great to count out strep.

Allen was so, so nice and patient! I was able to add a strep test at the last minute too, which possibly saved me a trip to another appt. I have had friends and family members come here. Everyone has had a great experience.

I had a few tests to make sure I did not have Covid or strep throat. Much congestion and was feeling miserable. Got a steroid shot and some meds and I’m good to go. It was quick and easy.

Texas 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.
