Bacteria cause urinary tract infections. Therefore, antibiotics are the best treatment option. To avoid complications and more serious symptoms, begin treatment directly after diagnosis. Once treatment with antibiotics begins, symptoms usually dissipate quickly. However, always complete the full cycle of antibiotics.
UTI complications are rare. Yet, untreated UTI infections can lead to more serious symptoms. These include: recurrent infections, permanent kidney damage or sepsis. Seek the help you need to resolve the symptoms and find relief.
A urinary tract infection is a general term. With a UTI the infection may impact the kidneys, bladder, ureters or urethra. The symptoms vary based on the specific location of the infection.

- Burning sensation when urinating
- Cloudy urine
- Odor from urine
- Frequent urination with small amounts of urine

What is a UTI?
A urinary tract infection refers to an infection in any part of your urinary system. Bladder infections and kidney infections fall into the category of a UTI. A UTI usually occurs because bacteria travels into the body from the urethra into the bladder. When bacteria multiples in the bladder, an infection forms leading to UTI symptoms.
How to Diagnose a UTI
A urinalysis determines a positive UTI. Our medical team analyses the urine sample for infection. Our medical team may also recommend a urine culture to determine the specific bacteria. This informs the best type of antibiotic to use kill the bacteria.
Why Urgent Care is Your Best Option
Emergency room visits are costly. UTI symptoms are painful, yet they most often don’t require an emergency room visit. Urgent care at Founders Family Medicine provides an alternative to the emergency room. You receive quality care without the extreme costs or excessive wait times.
Our board-certified physicians and physician assistants specialize in family medicine. We have the resources to offer compassionate care for every member of your family without the hassle and stress of the emergency room.
Founders Family Medicine offers telehealth appointments. We understand your need for safe and convenience treatment. However, with a UTI we need to analyze a urine sample for accurate diagnosis.
Before scheduling a telehealth appointment, a member of our medical team will talk with you to determine if telehealth is right for you. If so, we’ll schedule a telehealth appointment with a care provider.
