No - the term GROSS as used here, refers to the examination - "the study of the structure of the body and its parts without the use of a microscope" - it is not severity, it is simply describing the level of study of the specimen. If he simply observed the urine specimen in the cup, that would be a "gross" examination. If he looked at it under the microscope, it would be microscopic.
