Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Sonia
My UTI was chronic for four years. It was just initially urinary frequency and urgency and some bladder pain by that time it was full-blown bladder pain, pelvic pain. When to the doctor and I was given the standard treatment of care. My cultures were coming out negative, they didn't find anything wrong with me. I went back to the doctor over various months and was told "there's nothing wrong with you, everything's clear".
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Kelsey
All of the culture tests that I took didn't find any cause of infection. My doctor said she did some research and found out about this new technology it's called MicroGenDX. I honestly expected it to say there's nothing there because that's what every other one had said. She said it showed multiple strains, it was a really validating moment for me to say "there it is, that's what's been causing or could be causing me all this pain" and for her to show me and say "this is real, there is an infection, there is something there".
Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis (CBP) - Robert
The pain that I was experiencing came on in about 2016/2017 and it was intense and came out of nowhere. It was the worse experience of my life. I told my wife I think I'm going to take my own life because it was that bad. I got told by 4 or 5 different doctors that there was nothing they could really do. Dr. Hlavinka recommended MicroGenDX. It just made perfect sense when he told me that there was this DNA technology that he could use to help diagnose the infection.
Sinus Infection - Jenny
I was in a car accident that required me to have surgery, the first surgery was on my left arm and the next day my arm blew up, and had an infection. The doctor gave me antibiotics and from that point on I had a series of infections and problems. I could barely get off the couch or out of bed, it was horrible. It was very frustrating when you are sick and nobody can find out what the problem is.
Periprosthetic Joint Infection (PJI) - Joseph
I went to a physician that was world-renowned and had done more surgeries for a knee replacement than another surgeon in the US. From the time that it was done, I just had pain and the knee was warm and I went back several times to complain. I eventually went to another doctor who operated on me and I didn't get better because he didn't recognize that it was infected, he just told me it was the way it healed.
Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) - Zan
After a surgery, a couple of weeks later I went to see the doctor and he said everything was doing fine, once they took out the bandages there were 3 holes so he said: "I need to send you to a wound specialist". So I went, there was this great odor and I thought something had died and it was actually my foot that I smelled. The wound doctor came up and said "we're going to try MicroGenDX and we're going to see if they can do what they say they can do".
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Rachelle
I went to my primary care physician's office with classic UTI symptoms, the standard culture came back negative and I was left without treatment, as the months went on I continued to get worse. I was continually going back to my doctor still I wasn't culturing anything, I was having all kinds of medications thrown at me. I was scared that I would never get treatment.
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Kris
I was on vacation and I felt like I had a UTI, they did a cystoscopy and the doctor's remark was that's the best-looking bladder I've seen in years. It does get into your head when things come back negative all the time and the doctors are like "there's nothing wrong with you" but you know there's something. I started doing a lot of research and somebody suggested that I should call MicroGenDX and see if there are doctors near you.
Customer Satisfaction - Paul C.
Amazing turnaround for results and pleasant ease of use. Terrific staff in customer service who are very responsive! Nick Koenig was very helpful in searching for results, getting me signed up with release form and stayed on until I had everything. I have already ordered my second kit!
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Jules
Women are getting misdiagnosed since the doctors refuse to use the technology and have no idea how painful these UTI’s are. So next time you have a UTI please find a doctor from the MicroGenDX company that uses their labs. You will not regret it.
New Patient Hope - Karen
This lab (MicroGenDX) helped me when I was feeling pretty hopeless, their technology found my infection no one believed I had. Their technology is wonderful, but the kindness of their staff compares to no other place I’ve ever been. I met some of the kindest, compassionate people I’ve ever met using their services. I cannot say enough good things about them.
Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis (CBP) - Paul
I've suffered with chronic prostatitis for over 20 years. This involved a carousel of urologists and misdiagnoses that exposed me to improper use of antibiotics. I didn’t begin to experience relief until my healthcare provider introduced me to PathoGenius(now MicroGenDX) a few years ago. This cutting-edge technology has provided keen insights on how to leverage DNA sequencing which properly diagnosed stealth pathogens that can cause a lifetime of misery.
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) - Lori
A year ago I had a UTI that was mistreated for several weeks that ended up turning into a terribly painful kidney infection. I spent 3 days in the hospital where their culture test reported E. coli as the problem and I was yet again put on the wrong antibiotics. Fortunately, I had sent in a urine sample to MicroGenDX the day I went into the hospital (on my own). Within a couple days back home from the hospital I began feeling kidney pain again.
