UTI Treatment and Testing

Whether it's the first time or a recurring issue, urinary tract infections (UTIs) are never fun. And while they can happen to both men and women, the frustrating fact is that females are a lot more likely to suffer with them - about 50 to 60 percent of adult women have had at least one. Luckily, almost all UTIs can be treated quickly and effectively and the experts at One Medical can make sure you get the care you need in a way that's convenient for you.

Providers at all of our Boston offices are able to help with UTI Treatment.

How do you test for UTIs at One Medical?

We'll usually be able to diagnose a UTI with a quick office-based urine test, but occasionally, we'll also send the urine specimen to a lab to figure out which bacteria is causing your infection. This will help us select the best antibiotic to get rid of the infection. Occasionally, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like chlamydia or gonorrhea can cause symptoms similar to a UTI, so we sometimes test for those too.

How do you treat UTIs at One Medical?

It's very easy for One Medical members to get fast diagnosis and treatment for UTIs.

If you've never had a UTI and you're not sure that's what you're dealing with, make an appointment with your provider to determine the best treatment. Usually, a 3-5 day course of antibiotics is the best treatment, but what you need will depend on your specific situation and medical history.

If you've had UTIs or have had a kidney infection in the past, give us a call and someone will help you determine your next steps. Depending on your case, we may even be able to save you an office visit and prescribe an antibiotic for you over the phone or via our mobile app.
