“We have had great experience with all of the doctors we've seen here. I especially appreciate the great care our children have received as babies when two of them needed more critical care and hospital stays. I also really appreciate the nurse line and after hours nurse connection. This is so important to me, as it got me to take my seven week old baby into Children's Hospital right away. Thank you for all you do.”
“We are very happy with the doctors at Southdale Peds. We drive from Lino Lakes to get here and think it's definitely worth the long drive!”
Your child feels sick and has a fever and a sore throat. Is it strep?
Strep throat is a common illness among children and adolescents. Easily spread from person to person, you'll often hear that it's going around your child's school or your neighborhood. Due to strep throat's pervasiveness and communicability, Southdale Pediatrics has a walk-in strep clinic to help diagnose and treat your child more effectively.
Our walk-in strep clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm for established patients three years of age and older who do not need to see a pediatrician.
This service is available at all of our clinic locations without an appointment. The test includes a rapid screen as well as a 24-hour culture if the screen is negative. If your test is positive, you will receive treatment without an appointment with a pediatrician.
