In brief: Yes

If it is certain that you have a UTI, the symptoms are more reliable than the test.
Many doctors don't test at all You just want to be sure you are treating the right thing in the first place. For example, vaginal irritation would not improve with treatment for a UTI, but would give many of the same symptoms.
