"Great experience! The staff was very nice and accommodating. Very quick response time as well."- M.M. / Yelp / Jun 08, 2018
"This is the best Dr visit we've ever had. I wish this team could be my daughters pcp team. We took in my 4 yr old at about 3 AM and the whole staff was friendlier than my child's regular pediatrician is during the middle of the day. You could tell every staff member likes being there, and they were reassuring and put me at ease. Even though I brought my child in for what seemed like something minor- the staff took things very seriously. They monitored her for quite a while and made sure she was responding to the medicine they gave her. We will go here anytime we have an emergency in our family."- A.G. / Yelp / May 22, 2018
Purpose of Urinalysis
Urinalysis is used to screen for illness and medical conditions. Most commonly, urinalysis is used to check for signs of diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, pregnancy, and overall health.
About the Tests
Our team can test your urine sample in a variety of ways, depending on if you are visiting iCare to screen for a specific condition or an overall wellness check. Using a urine test strip, dipstick, microscopic analysis, or physical observation, our team will perform a comprehensive urinalysis. Listed below are some examples of what will be analyzed by our team:
- Red or white blood cells
Our technicians will do a microscopic analysis of your urine sample to check for the presence of blood cells. If they are found, this could indicate a number of abnormalities.
- pH balance
If your urine is more acidic or alkaline than is typical, it can imply a variety of conditions and should be monitored.
- Protein levels
If protein is present in the urine, it can point to pregnancy or a serious medical issue.
The presence of glucose in the urine could be a sign of diabetes or other serious problems with the blood sugar.
If our technicians find nitrites or the products of bacteria as it breaks down in the urine, this could be a sign of a urinary tract infection.
Abnormalities in the color of the urine can point to issues with medications, fluid balance, or diet.
If the odor of the urine is particularly strong or unpleasant, our team may want to conduct further tests to find the cause.
In particular, cloudiness can signify that bacteria, sperm, mucus, blood, or crystals are present in the sample, all of which could point to different conditions that may need to be tested further.
What to Expect
The urinalysis process is quick and easy at the iCare facility in Frisco or South Fort Worth. We will collect a urine sample from you, which will then be analyzed by one of our experienced medical practitioners. Using a urine test strip or dipstick test, the urine will be inspected for any abnormalities that may indicate an illness, disease, or pregnancy.

If abnormalities exist, our team will most likely perform further medical tests using the state-of-the-art technology in our onsite medical lab.
