What Is A UTI, and What Are the Symptoms?
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of the urinary tract, which may affect a portion of or the entire urinary system. At times, UTIs affect the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. UTIs are most common in women due to anatomical differences; however, men can and do get UTIs as well. The symptoms associated with a UTI are quite easy to identify, though the condition itself will need to be diagnosed and treated by a medical professional. The most common symptoms include:
- A strong urge to urinate frequently
- Cloudy urine
- Pelvic pain
- The sensation that you cannot fully empty your bladder
- A burning feeling while urinating
- Lower back pain

Health Direction Medical Center Reviews
I found my forever Dr when I found Dr. Ramirez. I have seen a few doctors in my day and I work in the Healthcare system. Dr. Ramirez is so professional and courteous, she takes the time to listen to me as a patient and she really focuses on my overall health. Not one to just prescribe medicatiin just because she can. I can't believe I picked her out of a list of doctors because I had to because of my insurance. Turns out it was the best choice I could ever make.
Great medical office, wonderful and warm experience from start to finish. Appreciate Dr. Ramirez taking time to go over the diagnosis clearly and treatment options. Was referred over by my Friend and can see why. Highly recommended.
(Translated by Google) A person who is worth 10 people, simply beautiful and who helps his patients so much with his charisma and sympathy, thank you Dr. Ramírez, several people are very proud of you, take good care of yourself because you take good care of us ❤️🙏🏻 (Original) Una persona que vale por 10 personas simplemente bella y que ayuda tanto a sus pacientes con su carisma y su simpatía gracias doctora Ramírez varias personas estamos muy orgullosas de usted cuídese mucho por que usted nos cuida bastante ❤️🙏🏻

Hands down, Dr. Ramirez is the best doctor i've ever had. She has been my PCP and friend for over 10 years. I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you Dr. Ramirez for your dedication to my health, your kindness, and friendship. D.L.
