Customer Question

My daughter Amber was diagnosed with step throat at our local family doctor on the 10th. Now my son has exactly the same symptoms. Chilling dizziness sore throat with fever. Is there any way I can get a subscription called in to Walmart in New Philadelphia without having to take all that time off my day today and have a swab and everything? Is there an online doctor who will do that for me?

Hello

No

You can not get a prescription on line....illegal.

An online doctor can not see a new patient, and your son needs a swab.

you must have his doctor do this.

Anything else is potentially dangerous. The swab will show if he really has strep and can show what antibiotics are best.

Never try to bypass the doctor.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
