How To Cope With Waiting For An Appointment Or Test Results

Ask that you be given test results as soon as possible

Next » « Previous


Standard procedure is that test results are given to your doctor, who in turn tells you what they are. However, it can't hurt to ask that a copy of the results be sent to you by e mail or fax. The worst they can say is "no".

Whether the results are sent to your doctor or to you, the sooner the results are back, the sooner you'll know the result. The simple request to get results as soon aspossible may speed getting test results.
