Sore Throat
in Wake Forest & Raleigh

A sore throat (pharyngitis) can present in a variety of ways, including hoarseness, tonsil swelling, pain or difficulty swallowing, and scratchiness. A sore throat can also be associated with other symptoms, such runny nose, nausea, vomiting, chills, fever, headaches, and body aches. This pain and discomfort is due to swelling in the pharynx, which is located at the back of your throat.

There are several different causes for developing a sore throat, including environmental irritants, such as allergens, dust, pet dander, or pollen. Sore throats can be caused by viral and bacterial infections.

Diagnosing and Treating a Sore Throat

To prevent the spread of sore throat, it is important to follow preventative tactics, such as frequently washing your hands and avoiding sharing makeup, utensils, or cups with others and close contact in general.

Although everyone may have a slightly different presentation, the most common symptoms of a sore throat include the following:

  • Cough
  • Fatigue/Body Aches
  • Fever/chills
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Swollen lymph nodes or tonsils

If you experience rash, high fever, swollen lymph nodes, or a sore throat that persists for several days, it is important to schedule an appointment at our office to identify and address the underlying issue, and to ensure that your symptoms do not increase in severity. If your sore throat is due to a viral infection, there are several different at-home treatment options, including cough drops, humidifiers or vaporizers, warm salt water gargles, and/or OTC pain medications. In order to determine whether you have strep throat, it will be necessary to perform a rapid strep test or throat culture. If it is determined that your sore throat is a bacterial infection following a laboratory test, you will likely be placed on antibiotic treatment.

Cost of Care Transparency
at Heritage Urgent & Primary Care

A visit to the hospital or emergency room to treat a sore throat can cost a substantial amount of money and take much longer for you to receive the care you need. At Heritage Urgent & Primary Care, our board-certified providers can provide you with high-quality care in a timely and cost-effective manner. If you require health services and are concerned about the cost involved, please refer to the following overview of our clinic’s policies. If you have any additional questions concerning billing, insurance, and/or payment options, please contact our staff.

Understand Insurance and Medicare Medicaid

All visits are billed under Primary Care and Primary Care Copay. We accept Medicare and are In Network with most major insurance providers and are happy to provide you with a list of accepted providers to ensure you are covered. If co-payments are required by your insurance plan, this will need to be paid prior to your appointment before check in. If you are not able to pay your co-payment, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment. It is also important to be aware that not all services are covered through insurance plans. If your insurance company determines that a service is not covered, it will be your responsibility to pay the remaining balance.

Out-of-Network and
Self-pay Accounts

If you are not covered by insurance, or if your provider is out of network, you will be responsible for the entire charge of the appointment. If you are not able to pay the full balance of your bill, please contact our billing office at 866-557-2612. We are committed to ensuring that you receive the care you need and will do our best to help set up a payment plan to cover the costs of your care.
