Women can get different kinds of urinary tract infections (UTIs). A diagnosis of a UTI is confirmed with a test called a urine culture.
A bladder infection, or bacterial cystitis, is the most common UTI in women. Symptoms include urgent or frequent urination. You may also have fever, pain, burning when you urinate, or bloody urine. Bacterial cystitis is most often treated with antibiotics.
This is an inflamed urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body. Symptoms include lower stomach or back pain and urgent or frequent urination. Urethritis is also treated with antibiotics.
This is a kidney infection. It can be serious and damage your kidneys if not treated. In severe cases, you may be hospitalized. You may have pain in the upper back. You may also have a fever. Treatment includes antibiotics.

Dr. Marsha Bornt started seeing me when I was in my early twenties (20 years ago). After seeing many doctors, she was the 1st doctor to diagnose me with endometriosis. I went on to have many laparoscopies with her over the years. In my thirties I moved about 45-50 min away from Apple Hill, so I ended up seeing another doctor who performed another laparoscopy...
Staff was very friendly and professional. I had a few questions that the doctor was more than happy to answer for me. I got all that needed to be done in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with my visit. Trying to find a parking spot was very frustrating though. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
I am always glad to meet with Dr. Bornt. She is very pleasant and makes sure she has answered all your questions or concerns. She is very thorough in her approach about your medical history . . .wants only the best for you as her patient.
