Urinary Tract Infections:
A urinary tract infection occurs when bacteria enters the urethra and travels up to the bladder. For women, the urethra is very small, making it easy for bacteria to travel up to the bladder. The infection is not usually dangerous if treated promptly and properly, but can produce some uncomfortable symptoms.
- Frequent urination
- Urge to urinate, even if only a small amount of urine comes out
- Cloudy, dark, or foul smelling urine
- Blood in urine
- Pain in lower abdomen or back
Here at PrimeCare Urgent Care we have rapid urinalysis available to give us information while you are in the office. We can also send the urine for a culture through the lab for even more details. We can interpret these results and develop a treatment plan to get you feeling better.
We are often asked if we can treat people over the phone for conditions like urinary tract infections in Novi MI. While some conditions may permit a telemed visit, most ailments are better diagnosed when we can put our eyes on our patients. Most conditions are common but we can often find something on an exam that may point us in a direction to a better diagnosis.
One of the things we take pride in is that we make sure to communicate with your primary provider when we make a diagnosis or get closer to figuring out why you have your current symptoms. After your visit we will send over any results we have from tests that we perform and any paperwork that will help your primary doctor continue to care for you. We understand what it means to be patient centered!
