1 doctor agrees

In brief: It depends

This depends on the doctor, the kind of office staff s/he has employed or works with, the efficiency of the lab, and how many other phone calls or similar tasks that cross the doctor's desk every day.
Some rely on nursing or other staff to communicate with patients about their lab results, unless they are distinctly abnormal. You can ask your doctor's office about typical turnaround time.
