Call your doctor's office back and ask to speak to his/her nurse. Ask the nurse to go over the test results with you - ask for a copy of the test results to be mailed to you so you can hand-deliver them to the Rheumy. Nurses can be your best ally. There is a website where you can email lab professionals about your specific results, but it's important to have the tests in front of you - and it's free...

Keep us posted and take care of yourself.
