Your urine specimen will be tested in the office immediately for evidence of infection, and a decision about short term treatment will be made on that basis today. Results from your PCR Urine Test will usually be available in 12-36 hours. After results are available, you will be contacted by a specialty trained urology provider who, when indicated, will prescribe antibiotic treatment in guided by AUA Best Practices Protocol for UTI treatment. If your urine analysis is negative and your symptoms persist, additional testing may be necessary, and we will then recommend definitive evaluation in an office setting to rule out other, less common, but potentially more serious, conditions. Antibiotics will typically not be prescribed after a negative test result, in order to avoid the risks of antibiotic overuse and the development of bacterial resistance.
