Our medical team will ask you specific questions about your symptoms and use evidence-based guidelines to decide if it is appropriate to prescribe antibiotics for a UTI.

We generally do not require lab tests or urine samples to diagnose a UTI.

We base any prescription for antibiotics on your risk factors, allergies, and other information particular to your health.
