Based on culture: A UTI in a man is unusual and often indicative of a urinary system abnormality that need to be evaluated by a urologist. A culture should always be collected and antibiotics chosen based upon the culture result. Doxy is a reasonable choice if the culture shows sensitivity to it. Nitrofurantoin or Cefdinir would be common choices as well.
