In brief: Many centers are

Accelerating biopsy to 'read out' times.
Many recognize the problem with "presenteeism" being at the desk or counter, but unable to focus while worryig about the "report". You need to ask "how long wil the report take" and then ask why does it take so long, and ask for the time off of the lag time from biopsy to path report. Some can do it in 24-48hrs. There is no recovery time.
