Test Results Policy

In general, our policy is to let patients know all lab, x-ray, and other test results, even if the results are normal. If you have an appointment in the near future, normal test results will be discussed at that appointment. If your next appointment is months away, you should hear results sooner even if they are normal. Give us three weeks to notify you of non-urgent test results. You will be notified by mail or by phone call.

If test results are abnormal and require more immediate follow-up, we will notify you sooner, usually by telephone.

If you receive normal test results but still have concerns, please make an appointment to discuss these with your physician or one of the PAs.
