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.
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.
