Our compassionate team provides same-day appointments and effective treatments for urinary tract infections. If you have symptoms of a UTI, get in touch with our office to schedule an urgent care visit today.
Urinary tract infections are treated during urgent care visits. Your Provider will talk with you about your symptoms and health history. A urine sample will be taken that will allow us to detect the presence of bacteria that are involved with a urinary tract infection. Because UTI’s are typically bacterial infections, most simple cases can be treated with a round of antibiotics. More complicated UTI’s might require a longer course of antibiotics, and pain medications can also be prescribed to ease any discomfort, like burning when you urinate. In addition, be sure to drink plenty of water to help your body flush away the bacteria.
If you have a urinary tract infection that has not cleared up on its own, you can receive the professional attention you need. Our experienced providers are experts in diagnosing and treating UTI’s so you can experience relief from uncomfortable symptoms. Schedule an urgent care appointment today.
