Some people are lucky in that they have rarely, if ever, experienced the symptoms of flu or strep. If you frequently suffer from either of these conditions, it is important to get confirmation through testing. Making sure you are receiving the right treatment and that any underlying considerations are identified will help promote better overall health.

“Flu” is the common collective name for all the strains of influenza, including swine and bird flu. From a medical science perspective, predicting which strain is likely to spread each flu season can be difficult. It is also important to recognize that what may feel like flu could be a completely different medical condition, such as Listeriosis or Lyme disease.

Much like flu, strep shares symptoms with a number of other throat infections. A sore or scratchy throat may also result from conditions including infectious mononucleosis or the common cold. Testing is the only sure way to confirm whether you are suffering from flu, strep or another type of infection.

Complete Health & Well-Being

Although infections cause flu and strep, a person’s general well-being can impact whether or not an infection takes hold and the severity of the symptoms. If you constantly feel run down, suffer from poor health or have a stressful life, the chances of contracting flu or strep are increased. It is, therefore, important to consider a total wellness approach to treatment.

At CLEAR Immediate Care, we are focused on individualized medicine. Our patients enjoy access to robust treatment plans and personalized doctor-patient relationships. We can provide testing for flu, strep and a range of other health conditions at our Chicago offices.

Contact us today if you have symptoms of flu or strep and would like a test to confirm the underlying source of your symptoms.

CLEAR Immediate Care is the most beautiful medical office I have ever seen. Dr. Shah and Dr. Trivedi are extremely knowledgeable and are able to explain things in a way I can understand. It is obvious that this doctors office is very well organized and everyone is really professional and helpful!
I really like the location because it is convenient for me and has easy parking. I am so happy that I found this practice!

Clear Immediate Care is amazing. Dr Shah and Dr Trivedi spend time with their patients to best understand how to move forward in the best direction. They have… stepped up to the line during COVID, offering screenings and antibody testing. They are also still (virtually) seeing their regular patients. The space is new, beautiful and clean

Went in to clear to have COVID antibody testing done following some flu like symptoms hit back in February before the shut down. The office was so clean and warm. The staff was friendly and almost immediately showed me to a treatment room so we would be separated from others. Drs. Trivedi and Shah were incredibly personable. The blood draw was quick and painless and we’ll be getting results soon. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for primary care or pain management.

Went in for a COVID antibody test today and had a great experience. Every staff member I met was knowledgeable and kind. I got in and out quickly, all while maintaining strict social distancing guidelines. Dr. Shah sat with me and answered all my questions and gave me a realistic and helpful understanding of what the test could and could not do. The office was very aesthetically pleasing, spacious and calming. I highly recommend CLEAR Immediate Care!

Had a great experience at Clear Immediate Care. Did their COVID antibody testing which was very quick and easy, will be getting the results in a couple days. Dr. Shah and Dr. Trivedi were great and upfront with their communication. The place was clean and safe. Their whole staff was welcoming and were wearing protective equipment. Will be returning for other healthcare needs!

I’ve been suffering from chronic back pain for years. I’ve seen multiple doctors, specialists, and physical therapists. I’ve had MRIs and done acupuncture but life has never been normal for the last 15 years. Dr. Trivedi helped me tremendously with my back issues. He actually CARES about his patients! He listened to me very carefully before developing a treatment plan. I felt more like a valued customer rather than an annoying patient. If you’ve been struggling with back issues, consider seeing Dr. Trivedi.
