I had a lung X-ray taken about a week ago and I haven't heard back from my pulmonologist's office with the results. I've been patiently calling for the last few days.

Yesterday, I was told when I called that his nurse needs to go over the results with him. I called this morning and I was put into the nurses's voicemail.

Is there anything else I should be doing?

Thanks!

It can take a few days for the radiologist to view the pictures. I don't know why a nurse has to do anything. I'd give them a few more days.

Who ordered the X-ray? That's the person who should be receiving the report.

I can usually find my reports online through my page on the hospital's site. Lots of hospitals are doing this now.

Thanks, Alcie.

After not getting the results for a week and a half now, I called the radiology office where I had the test done and I was able to pick up a copy of the radiologist's report. Everything is normal which is very good news.

The last time I called the doctor's office a few days ago, the receptionist told me that they've been very busy.

Most times, especially busy med practices, unless something shows up, they don't call. No news is good news kind of thing. But I know if I'm anxious over the result of a testing I will call the docs office for the results or have them send me their findings.

Thanks, Red_34, that makes sense.
