In brief: Primary care doctor

A child with a fever, sore throat, and abdominal pain makes one think that they may have strep throat.
Most primary care doctors can do a rapid strep test in the office to see if strep is actually the cause. It is important to treat strep to avoid potential complications.

Many doctors may rely on their clinical impression for the presence of Step throat even when the rapid Strep test is negative.
