Diagnostic Test and Consultation Results
If the doctor refers you for diagnostic testing or an outside consultation with a specialist, the report will be sent to our office. If anything in your results needs immediate review, you will be called and scheduled for an appointment to examine the results with the doctor. Otherwise, the doctor will discuss the results with you on your next visit.
The staff cannot tell you the results of any diagnostic testing or consultation reports over the phone. They cannot read the report to you in person. The doctor has the expertise to interpret the results and explain them to you. He will do this during your appointment.
If you would like a copy of the report, you may ask the nurse and she will see that you are given a copy to take home for your records.
