If you experience signs and symptoms of overactive bladder, you might first visit your family doctor or general practice physician. If the cause of your problems cannot be identified and remedied, your doctor may refer you to a urologist for specialized diagnosis and testing.

Your family medicine doctor or primary care doctor is a great person to see about your overactive bladder. These doctors can help you manage your overactive bladder and importantly, they'll know when you need to see a specialist. Therefore, your family medicine doctor or primary care doctor is a good first stop to discuss this problem.
