Customer Question
I saw a urologist...

I saw a urologist for penile irritation weeks ago and he gave me some antibiotics. I have finished the antibiotics but the irritation hasn't gotten any better. I have never has this before and have not had unprotected sex. Should I go back tosee my urologist?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Yes. I think my overall health is good

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I had ultrasound of the bladder and other organs and it was negative. I take medicine for GERD and blood thinning medication because of a blood clot in the lung.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
