Time to get scan results back

      Hi all, I’m just curious, once you do your scans, how long does it take to get your results back? Also, how do you get the results? MyChart? Appointment? Phone call from your doctor?

      Typically, I do my scans and then have to wait until the appointment with my doctor the following week. Sometimes, I will get them through MyChart before the appointment, but lately that’s been rare. Of course the wait time between scans and appointment is just agonizing and I’m wondering if other clinics have a better process.

      Thanks!
      Amanda
