Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the second most common type of infection and account for an estimated 8 million office visits every year in the US.

At Preferred Urgent Care, our onsite labs mean we can quickly diagnose and treat your UTI so you can feel better faster.
What is a UTI?
Common in women of all ages, a urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection occurring in any part of the urinary tract, which creates urine. Harmful bacteria entering the urethra and bladder are generally the main cause of UTI's. Antibiotics are used to treat this infection and usually will clear up within a few days. However, if not treated promptly and accurately, a UTI can spread and create more complications in the kidneys which could become life threatening.
Common symptoms of a UTI include:
- Burning sensation when urinating
- Abdominal or pelvic pain
- Frequent urge to urinate
- Blood in urine
- Lower back pain
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and need to consult a medical professional, stop by Preferred Urgent Care in Katy & Fulshear today or contact us online.
