But throat pain is a symptom of a number of several contagious and potentially serious respiratory conditions, so you may want to seek testing that can accurately pinpoint the cause of your sore throat before your illness progresses. If you’re in the Waterford, Michigan, area, you can seek same-day testing and sore throat treatment at Springfield Urgent Care’s White Lake location only a few miles away.

We treat walk-in patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, for many non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries.

We don’t require appointments, but you can book a time for your visit using our convenient online check-in service if you wish.

On-Site Testing Is Often Step One in Sore Throat Treatment

Sore throats can be caused by viruses, bacteria, or allergens. The most effective treatment plan will depend on the cause. For example, strep throat is a bacterial infection that’s commonly treated with antibiotics. However, antibiotics would not be effective against a viral infection like the flu. If testing determines you have influenza, your medical practitioner might prescribe antiviral medication to help speed your recovery and relieve your sore throat and other flu symptoms.

Springfield Urgent Care is staffed by experienced, certified medical practitioners and equipped to provide same-day test results for these health conditions that may cause a sore throat:

  • Influenza
  • COVID-19
  • Strep
  • Mononucleosis
  • Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)

When to Seek Urgent Care for a Sore Throat

In many cases, a sore throat will improve on its own with a few days of rest and the use of over-the-counter medication. However, if you or your child has a fever that’s higher than 101 degrees, swollen glands, pus on the tonsils, a rash, or severe pain that interferes with eating or sleeping, it’s a good idea to seek medical treatment.

“By far the best Urgent Care I’ve ever been too. First, the employees are amazing and full of positivity. They know what they are doing and get stuff done. You actually feel safe there. I’ve never felt safe in an urgent care before from bad experiences until I walked into this one. I’m beyond grateful. I have to mention how beautiful and CLEAN the building is. If you need an urgent care go to this one you will not be disappointed.”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”
