Re: Lab work and result.
I always go and get my own results. I just bring my license for ID and they have to give them too me. Where I LOVE my doctor, sometimes things are missed. Plus, I personally like to keep a file. It helps me to see what "normal" is for me....and it assures me that I will always know if something is amiss in case anything important gets overlooked.
I have seen and heard of other offices totally missing something critical and the patient NOT getting a call when they should. Just be prepared to try to not interpret things yourself. I am used to my blood results to a point. If you are someone that may get upset or better said, do better getting the results from the doctor...that may be better.
Again, for me, I always get my own copies. Plus waiting and wondering can be really hard.
