Since urinary tract infections can cause significant discomfort and, if left untreated, can become quite serious, you should see your doctor regarding your symptoms. Your family physician or primary care doctor may undertake diagnostic testing or may simply initiate treatment based on the clinical diagnosis. Since your time with your doctor may be limited, consider making a list of points that you would like to cover with your doctor, such as your specific symptoms, general health information, health history, current medications, and medical allergies.
