How long should it take to get a urine sample tested and the results called in?
I am trying not to freak out and call the doctor too much! Lol.
I want to know what is wrong with DD. I dropped the sample off Friday!

Depending on what they are testing for I would expect something today.

Some cultures however can take up to seventy two hours to see if anything grows.

Depends on the lab...some have a in house lab and some have to send it off. Usually it's done in a in house lab in a matter of minutes and then a culture is sent off to grow at another lab.

It was for a possible bladder infection.
