Yes: If a doctor does not specifically look for giardia, s/he will not find it.

From where ?: A bit of an open ended question. How do you know you have an infection, and is it viral or bacterial? You'll need a doctor to diagnose and tell you that. Antibiotics usually will resolve a bacterial infection, but which antibiotic to take for your particular problem is up to your doctor.
