Evaluation of the UTI depends on the clinical scenario. However basic evaluation will remain same for all UTIs name urine analysis and culture. In selective cases complete blood count, renal function tests, ultrasound abdomen and or CT scan. Some other tests are done based on clinical condition as per the need for evaluation.

Visited for : Azoospermia Treatment
After initial semen analysis test at famous maternity hospital, we found condition of Azoospermia(with zero sperm in semen), so doctor referred us to Dr.Praveen joshi for further consultant. Dr Joshi explained us everything in detail, and reasons why sperm count can be zero. He suggested some Hormone tests and scanning to decide if sperm production is normal in the body. After this Dr.Joshi himself have operated PESA at Cloudnine and successfully extracted sperms required for IVF. Trust worthy doctor, I would recommend everyone to go for this doctor.
