No.  Enterobacter species are fairly resistant organisms from our GI tracts.  They respond to newer antibiotics usually, but in chronic infection conditions, it is good to have sensitivity reports to guide treatment.  Antibiotics are the gold standard and anything less plays a potential role in loss of kidney function and potential loss.
