I was checkd for sti's at the e.R. N they said they'd call if abnormal, but never calld so do u think everything was normal?Would they have calld if +?

They should: But... Er's get busy with rotating schedules so there isn't always continuity of patients's care and things more easily slip through the cracks. I always tell patients to be sure they get their results, normal or not. Do not rely on no news is good news, that may just mean no one knows what is going on. Call and ask to get your results. ...Read more

How long does it usually take for a doctor to provide test results? I was tested for an STD a month ago and the dr still has not returned my calls.

Ethical area: Your doctor is obligated to provide you the results of any tests in a timely manner, as I am sure you have been worrying about these. Make front desk aware of your frustration, and provide a "red line" for a response over 2 or 3 days. Also, in most states, you are entitled to your test results, and even your total records. ...Read more
