What is the main cause of a UTI infection?
One of the main causes of a UTI infection is bacteria infecting the urinary tract. One example is that E. coli bacteria, which live in the bowel, cause most UTIs
How do you know if you have a UTI infection?
There are a wide range of symptoms that can let you know if you have a UTI infection. The most common being a burning sensation when urinating, passing small amounts of urine frequently or passing urine with blood which may appear red, bright pink or cola-colored.
Can a UTI go away on its own?
This all depends on the type and level of UTI infection that you may have currently. For minor UTI infections they can go away on their own but it can take longer, whereas with antibiotics the time of recovery is faster.
What is a virtual visit?

This may vary ( depending on the medical condition) anywhere from 10-15 minutes.
How do I prepare for a virtual doctor visit?
To prepare for a virtual visit, find a quiet place in your home or office and use headphones or earbuds if necessary. It would also be helpful to have good lighting in case the doctor needs to do a physical check. Make sure to have a list of your symptoms, medical history, and any questions you may have regarding your condition.
Does my insurance cover a virtual care service?

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.
