In brief: Not at all

That is not right.
The first thing would be to repeat the urinalysis since there were skin cells, ie, contamination, on the collection. These skin cells could have been the source of the wbcs. Also, how would he know if the antibiotic would properly treat this infection if there was no culture to base it upon. Pls repeat the test.
