In brief: Culture

The physician should take a swab of the infected site and send it for culture(growth) to the lab which will also conduct a "sensitivity" test to see which antibiotics will work and those that are resistant and won't work.
If all else fails, the MD should check with the centers for disease control(cdc) in Atlanta for the latest possible antibiotic Rx for gonorrhea resistant strains.
