How does DispatchHealth treat UTI discomfort

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) impact more than 3 million Americans each year, so you’re not alone if you’ve experienced the annoying, painful symptoms that come along with them. Untreated UTIs can lead to long-term health complications. Luckily, DispatchHealth can help. We send experienced medical professionals to you, allowing you to receive treatment for a UTI without having to leave the couch. The out-of-pocket cost is about the same as typical urgent care clinics, and the medical cost for a DispatchHealth visit is a mere fraction of the cost of an emergency room visit. You can request care from a DispatchHealth professional for non-life-threatening conditions via our app, a quick telephone call, or through our website.

If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.

How to spot UTI symptoms

Women experience UTIs at a significantly higher rate than men—about half of women will contract a UTI at some point in their life, compared to about 1 in 10 men. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, including:

  • Abdominal, lower back, or genital pain
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Fever
  • Strong-smelling urine
  • Blood in urine

Antibiotics are typically the best way to treat UTI symptoms. Antibiotic treatment helps to eradicate the infection, and symptoms begin to resolve within a few days. DispatchHealth can diagnose a UTI and prescribe an antibiotic in order to clear your UTI as quickly as possible. In most cases DispatchHealth will start the antibiotics during the visit to your home.

If left untreated

If left untreated, UTIs can spread to your urethra, bladder, and kidneys, causing long-term damage. We highly recommend prompt treatment to anyone experiencing a UTI, and we’re here to help. Call us, download our app, or request care on our website to get the treatment you need ASAP.

  • They brought everything you would see in an emergency room, but the emergency room was our bedroom! They set up an IV. They knew what they were doing. And they were very personable. We never felt rushed. And the insurance covered it all. We didn’t have to pay a dime.

  • I wasn’t sure if I should go to the ER. My doctor recommended DispatchHealth. It’s great for people like me who have COPD and other health issues. They tested my blood, ran COVID and flu tests, and even gave me IV fluids. Before leaving they sent a prescription to my pharmacy.

  • They did the ultrasound right there with my Dad on the bed. Didn’t have to go to the emergency room or anything. And the results went straight to his doctor. Very professional, just seamless. And they were very caring and compassionate.

  • It was wonderful to know that someone would come to the house within a few hours. Every experience we’ve had with them has been excellent. Whenever they leave, they know how grateful we are that they came to our house and helped us.
