Consult us through the Medhero™ App, discuss your symptoms, take and send a picture of the back of your throat if you would like. We will make a clinical decision on whether you need an antibiotic, or a confirmatory strep or mono test. You can get those tests by requesting a Housecall appointment or stop by the Medhero™ office at your leisure (you don’t need an appointment for most confirmatory tests!) and results are available immediately. In some cases the antibiotic e-prescription may be instantly sent through the the app to your pharmacy for you to start until the confirmatory test is done. Final results can be sent to your primary care provider.
