Painful Urinary Tract Infection? Receive Prompt Treatment in New York City

Urinary Tract Infection New York CityA urinary tract infection (UTI) occurs when harmful bacteria enter the urethra and multiply in the bladder. UTIs are very common, particularly among women. That’s because a woman’s urethra is much shorter than a man’s, so bacteria are able to reach her bladder more easily.

UTIs can be painful, but that’s not the only reason to seek professional treatment. If left unchecked, bacteria in the bladder can move into the kidneys, enter the bloodstream, and cause serious complications. What’s more, due to the growing prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, UTIs are becoming increasingly difficult to treat.

In New York City, you can receive prompt and effective treatment for a urinary tract infection at MedRite Urgent Care. Just stop by – no appointment is needed. After you arrive at our walk-in clinic, you’ll be asked to provide a urine sample, which will be immediately tested for bacteria in our on-site lab. If a UTI is detected, your doctor at MedRite will likely prescribe an antibiotic, which you may be able to pick up at our on-site pharmacy. That way, you can begin your treatment immediately.

When to Seek UTI Treatment at MedRite

Come to MedRite right away if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • A burning sensation during urination
  • Bladder spasms or cramping
  • Urinary urgency or frequency
  • Production of only a small amount of urine despite a strong urge to urinate
  • Cloudy, bloody, or odorous urine
  • Urine leakage

If you are diagnosed with a urinary tract infection and prescribed antibiotics to treat it, be sure to complete the entire course, even if you start to feel better before you finish it. Stopping your medication too soon may allow some of the bacteria to evade destruction, which means your infection may linger and worsen. Also, be sure to drink plenty of water to help flush the bacteria out of your bladder.

If you suspect that you have a urinary tract infection, visit MedRite Urgent Care in New York City. We provide urgent medical care every day, including weekends and holidays, and we accept most major health insurance plans.
