Service Details

Urgent care for sore throat

Sore throat can be quite uncomfortable and may interfere with daily activities. Fortunately, it can be treated at an urgent care clinic. If you seek quick relief, Nao Medical offers fast, efficient, and cost-effective treatment and care at all our locations in NYC.

About our urgent care service

With Nao Medical's urgent care, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We're open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

Before booking your appointment please note:

Ensure that your insurance benefits include urgent care or contact us to confirm if your individual/group insurance plan is eligible for use. Please dial 911 immediately if your medical problem appears to be life-threatening.

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 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 urgent care centers open after hours?

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

Should I make an appointment for urgent care?

Not necessarily. Most 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 urgent care for non-emergency?

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

Can I pay for 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.

Needed a rapid antigen test for travel the next day. Made the appointment online but they were also accepting walk-ins. No wait time if you fill your information online. Was done in 10 mins. Most people waited outside for their results(20 mins) but it’s not necessary because they upload it on the portal. Very quick and easy. Highly recommend.

I went for an immigration exam. The only reason for me taking out 1 star is because they don’t say the surgeon don’t stay in this location. So after you pay, do the initial exams (i just have to do the Gold plus test) you will need schedule to see the surgeon in Bronx. But other this… everything (even in the Bronx) was really fast and efficient….

I've been to few urgent care centers and this by far was the best. I was able to call and make an appointment for my daughter. When we arrived we waited less than 5 minutes and was directed to the room. The ladies up front were friendly, very helpful, and amazing. Excellent customer service Answered any questions I had regarding my daughter insurance. I need to give a huge shout out to Stephanie R, Kim and Shea. Highly recommended!!
