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.

“Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. ”

“We learned of Dr. Muzzi and her staff via our cost sharing provider, Liberty Health Share. We chose to join the practice because Dr. Muzzi is an excellent physician, she can see and treat our whole family, and we can have 24-hour access. The direct primary care model is SO much more convenient and gives me additional piece of mind. Dr. Muzzi goes above and beyond for her patients. She really takes the time to listen and understand my questions, thoughts, and concerns. She helps educate me while also respecting my choices and preferences, which is very important to me as a mom. I know my family is receiving the best possible care under Dr Muzzi. I’ve never experienced another doctor so passionate about truly helping her patients. She goes above and beyond for us, and we are truly grateful to have her in our lives! Her nurse Erin is awesome and takes great care of us as well! If you want the best care possible, and the added peace of mind of direct access then look no further!”
