I go into the lab for the blood draw and receive the results the next morning via phone. One of the nice benefits of being able to deal with MD Anderson here for all my and my wife's issues, is that they have the labs on site and they don't mess around with getting it done. The next time I am personally there (at least once a week either for my wife or me), I pick up a printed copy of all of the results and add it to my file.
