UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) Treatment Through Telemedicine

Telemedicine is making UTI treatment quick and easy, and it’s one of the most common conditions Medek diagnoses and treats. Our dedicated medical professionals are able to ask a series of targeted questions to see if you have the top signs of a UTI and then prescribe a treatment plan based on your answers.

Although it’s possible for everyone to get a UTI, several factors can increase someone’s risk of infection. These things include exposure to dirty water, having a full bladder for extended periods of time, urinary tract blockages and a lack of proper hygiene.

When you have a consultation via telemedicine, your Medek provider will go through several questions to see if your specific symptoms point to a urinary tract infection. Once you answer the questions, the medical professional will determine the best course of treatment for your UTI symptoms. This determination will depend on your medical history, symptom severity, and how long you’ve had your symptoms.

People with a history of having urinary tract infections may get a different UTI treatment prescription to help fight it. This is why it’s important to mention if you have a prior medical history of UTIs. Your provider may also prescribe an over-the-counter urine test to help solidify a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Once your medical professional diagnoses your UTI, they can tailor a UTI treatment plan to suit your needs. They’ll choose a plan and go over the benefits and risks. Your individual treatment plan will depend on the severity of your symptoms. Possible UTI treatment plans can include:

– An antibiotic prescription
– An over-the-counter pain medication recommendation to help ease any discomfort
– A referral to either an urgent care or to your primary care provider for a urine culture

Telemedicine continues to evolve to be more convenient for the patient, and this is what we want to achieve at Medek. We have doctors*, physician assistants, practitioners, and nurses available to consult 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for your convenience.

Our goal is to help you tailor a UTI treatment plan on your schedule at a time that works for you. We’ll send your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice, and it’ll be ready for you to pick up within an hour. This ensures that you can get fast and effective UTI treatment and get back to your life.
