At Home Strep Testing

We are offering you a home strep test kit as part of a pilot program. This kit gives you the option to test your school-age child (ages 5-12 years) for strep throat at home and will be given to you at your well child appointment. The goals of this trial program at Forest Hills Pediatrics are to empower you as a parent or caregiver, and to save you time, money and a trip to our office if your child has a sore throat that may not be strep. Before you administer the test, please watch our instructional video.
