Can I call my gyno about a urinary tract infection instead of seeing my gp?

In brief: Yes and more
The issue is about access, appropriate treatment, and follow-up.
A urologist can also be consulted for a urinary tract infection. There has been instances in which patients have been on an antibiotic that is resistant to the bacteria identified on a urinary culture and sensitivity. Good followup prevents further complications.

In brief: Yes, but...
Not all utis are the same.
An isolated case, diagnosed recently will be usually treated with a 3 day course of abtx. Recurrent infections, or repeat symptoms inside of 6mos, or symptoms lasting long than 4-5 days may need more attention. Repeat or recurrent utis should be seen by doctor. A urine analysis and culture should be sent for repeat utis.
