Walk-In Rapid Strep Test

Grow Pediatrics is excited to introduce a new walk-in strep throat testing service at our Inver Grove Heights and Richfield locations! Children, ages 3 and older, who are established patients (those who have had an annual physical at our clinic within the last year) are now eligible to receive strep throat testing and, if positive, treatment without needing to see a provider.

Our new walk-in rapid strep test is more accurate than a standard rapid strep throat test and patients will get final results in just 15 minutes. No need to wait 24/48 hours for a throat culture to get final results!

The cost of this test will vary depending on insurance plans, but parents can expect the cost to be similar to a standard rapid strep throat test and throat culture.

What to Expect

  1. Call ahead or walk-in at either the Inver Grove Heights or Richfield location

  2. A staff member, a nurse or medical assistant, will administer the strep throat test (sample collection is the same as a standard rapid strep throat test)

  3. After 15 minutes, patients will receive final results without the need for a throat culture

  4. If positive, we’ll send your medication request to a location of your choice without needing to see a provider

This offer is available at both our Inver Grove Heights and Richfield locations.

Hours Available

Patients can access this service during normal business hours, up until 15 minutes before our office closes.
