Lab: Whatever reason, all physicians don't have income for large staff or expensive technology. Evan clinics are guilty of this. But patients can take responsibility and after reasonable time call for results. Labs and drs are liable for getting serious lab results in timely manner. This day and age, many have lost their autonomy. Talk to doc in nice way and arrange some form notification in future.
