How long does it take the lab to process a skin biopsy for Lupus?

I posted in another thread asking if skin biopsy could diagnose Lupus and got some great answers. I called my dermatologist today see if it was reasonable to ask them to check for Lupus. She said they were checking for Lupus and if it turned out positive I would be called in for bloodwork.

Does anyone know how long it takes to 'read' a Lupus biopsy? I have an appointment for a physical with my GP in 2 weeks and I'm hoping I'll have results before that.

Thanks in advance!
