A urology practice processes a large number of varied laboratory tests on a daily basis. Because of the large number of specimens we do not routinely call you with your test results. Often, you will be asked to schedule a follow up appointment for you to see your doctor and he/she will review your results at that time. If you are wondering about your results, it is best to log in to the Patient Portal or you may call the office to obtain your results. Please be aware that some tests take at least 48 hours before results are available and others take up to a week or more. When requesting lab results, be certain to give your name, age, the test performed and the location of the laboratory you visited.
