What to do if I have a bladder infection, what kind of doctor should I see first?

Internal Medicine - Nephrology & Dialysis

In brief: Doctor for UTI's

If this is your first bladder infection, you can see a physician.
A urine will be obtained for culture and you will be started on an antibiotic. If it is a frequent problem, more than twice, you need to see a urologist to have some studies done to see if you have an anatomical, or other, problem causing you to have them. If you are a woman, urinating after sex may be all that's needed. Good luck.
