FAQ

What causes sore throat?

Most sore throats are caused by viruses, like a cold or flu. Other causes are allergies, exposure to pollution, mouth-breathing during sleep, and smoking. More serious sore throats include tonsillitis, strep, and the kissing disease (mononucleosis).

How long does a sore throat take to go?

Sore throats caused by common viruses may last three to ten days and will resolve on their own. More serious types may last longer even with treatment.

When should I be concerned about a sore throat?

A sore throat often improves with or without at-home treatment. But if it’s accompanied by a fever that reaches 101°F  or more, sleeping problems, or a red rash, you should see your doctor immediately.

Should I go to urgent care if it hurts to swallow?

If it hurts to swallow and it interferes with eating and talking, you should seek medical care so a doctor can prescribe medication to relieve or treat sore throat. 

When is a sore throat an emergency?

A sore throat can be considered an emergency if you’re having trouble breathing and if you’re experiencing a very high fever.

What is the difference between emergency and pediatric urgent care?

The difference between emergency and urgent care is that emergency rooms in hospitals treat life-threatening conditions and injuries, whereas urgent care clinics treat illnesses and injuries that require immediate medical attention but are non-life-threatening.

Are your pediatric urgent care centers open after hours?

Yes. Most of our pediatric urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.

Should I make an appointment for pediatric urgent care?

Not necessarily. Most pediatric urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.

Can I go to pediatric urgent care for non-emergency?

Yes. You can go to pediatric urgent care for consultations, physicals, primary care, lab tests, and more.

Can I pay for pediatric urgent care appointment without insurance?

If you have no insurance, we provide our services without insurance for self-pay patients, giving you the care when you need it most.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.
