About Lab Test Results
When will I get my test result information?
Test results are usually available online within 2-3
business days, often within 24 hours. However, some
tests will require additional time for processing. You
will be informed of the additional time needed in the
communication accompanying your requisition for tests
that require more than 3 business days. Results are
posted to you as soon as we receive them.
* Can my doctor view my results directly?
No. While you can review your results online, PrivateMD
Labs has restricted the online access to you personally;
however, you have the opportunity to print a report
that you can share with your doctor.
