When should I see a Urologist?

If you are waking up 2 or more times at night, consult your family physician to exclude underlying medical problems and for adjustments of your existing medications. You may be referred to a Urologist to evaluate for urinary tract problems.

Symptoms that may suggest a urinary tract problem include:
  • Difficulty passing urine 
  • Slow and/or Interrupted urine flow
  • Sensation of incomplete bladder emptying
  • Frequent urination
  • Urgency – difficulty delaying urination due to a strong urgent sensation 
If you have symptoms suggestive of an underlying urinary tract problem, you can book an appointment to see one of our specialists.

What can I expect when I see a Urologist?

You doctor will speak to you to find out more about the type of symptoms you are experiencing, and perform a clinical examination. Some of the routine tests you may be asked to do include:
  • Urine tests to exclude UTI
  • Uroflowmetry
  • Bladder diary – a 3-day record of your fluids intake and output
You may be referred to different specialists for further evaluation if your doctor suspects that you have underlying medical problems.
