Test results are checked by your doctor when they are received at the clinic. Results may be delivered electronically, faxed or posted. Your doctor will note if the results are satisfactory or whether he/she wishes to speak to you or wants you to make an appointment. Reception staff will contact you to make an appointment if directed to do this by your doctor. If you do not hear from your doctor please do not assume that "no news is good news" and always confirm your result by ringing the clinic. Your doctor may ring you directly if the result is urgent.
The time it takes for radiology and pathology results to come back to your doctor varies depending on the test requested and whether or not samples have to be sent out of Mildura for testing. Your doctor will be able to give you an idea how long it may take for your tests to come back.
If you have had an x-ray, CT or ultrasound, please ensure you collect your films/CD from radiology for future reference.
