Urinalysis Performed in Orlando, FL

Urinalysis Orlando FLUrine is a valuable medical tell-all. During a urinalysis, a medical professional evaluates the appearance, content, and concentration of a urine sample on a physical, chemical, and microscopic level.

The result of a urinalysis can help a physician detect and monitor a wide range of health conditions, including urinary tract infections (UTIs), diabetes, and kidney disease. For example, a UTI can make urine—which is normally clear—appear cloudy, while high protein content can be a sign of kidney disease. If a urinalysis produces an abnormal result, further testing is usually ordered to pinpoint the source of the problem.

Why Urine Tests Are Performed

A urinalysis may be performed for a variety of reasons. For instance, a physician may order this relatively quick and simple test to:

  • Check a patient’s overall health during a routine physical examination, pregnancy checkup, pre-op appointment, or hospital admission
  • Diagnose a health issue if a patient is experiencing abdominal pain, back pain, frequent or painful urination, bloody urine, or other urinary issues
  • Monitor an existing medical condition, such as kidney disease

While some pregnancy tests and drug screenings also rely on a urine sample, these urine tests are designed to detect specific substances that are not checked for in a standard urinalysis. For instance, pregnancy tests measure the level of a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), while drug tests can detect specific drugs or their metabolic products depending on the purpose of the testing.

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
