Should I call my doctor?

I had blood drawn for a lab test and was told the results would be in today.

I called around 10am this morning and left a message for the nurse.

I need these results today because they pertain to an appointment I have for my children tomorrow morning.

I went by their office on my lunch break around 1 pm and the nurse said she would speak to the doctor and get back with me.

It is now 4 pm.

Should I wait till close to 5 or go ahead and call again?

  • I would call and talk to the doc next time you see them. Sometimes they don't know what the office workers are doing but the fact that you called and stopped there and it's almost closing time would tick me off.

  • I say call again. Doctors offices I have been to and try to call hardly ever pick up around closing time.
