If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from urinary tract infections (UTIs) each year, then you know just how unpleasant this infection can be. Do you know that UTIs are the fifth most prevalent health-associated infection in the U.S. and account for over 9.5% of infections reported by hospitals? (1). UTIs can cause a wide range of symptoms, from mild to debilitating, and if left untreated, they can even lead to more serious health problems. Approximately 10 in 25 women and 3 in 25 men experience UTI symptoms during their lifetime (2). UTIs can cause a burning sensation when you urinate, pelvic pain, and even fatigue.

If you think you have a UTI and would like to get it checked out, you can just walk-in into a Prime Urgent Care center for an immediate exam, testing, and a treatment plan by a friendly, qualified healthcare professional. Our board-certified providers are trained to recognize and treat urinary tract infections as it’s a common reason why people visit Prime Urgent Care centers.
The first step in the treatment process is a physical examination to better understand your current condition and symptoms.
The next step is performing an on-site urinalysis test which takes about 10 minutes and is the best method of diagnosis. Too many white blood cells in urine is an indicator of a urinary tract infection. In some cases, a urine culture may be collected and sent to an outside lab for further testing.
If a UTI is present, the final step is establishing a treatment plan to get you feeling better quickly. This will involve prescribing medication(s) and providing recommendations on relieving symptoms.
The total cost of a visit to Prime Urgent Care is usually around $110, which includes the provider visit/examination and in-house urinalysis, and urine culture sent to the lab. In some cases, a urine culture might be sent to a lab for further testing if deemed necessary, and the cost of the visit would be around $130.
