Thats not actually true no matter if they wait until next appointment they will tell you it can be something wrong but they might not look at your results until the next appointment

So even if you don't get a call they probably haven't looked at your results yet but will look at the next appointment

My OB usually doesn't call with the results unless something is wrong. We don't even discuss them at the visit if everything was normal.  It shouldn't take them more than a week to get the results back. So if you haven't heard from them yet your tests probably came back normal but if your really worried about it call your OB and ask.

And most doctors will look at the results when They get them back to at least make sure nothing is wrong. They won't wait until the next visit.

Yeah those come in with in a few days and they call if anything major comes up if nothing major comes up they will not call and just tell you at next appointment example when I had all that testing done I never heard from them and then when I got to my appointment they told me I was borderline anemic and have me an iron supplement so if there is anything major they call right away to tell you if not you will not hear from them and with all those tests like you just had they come back within 4 days. Hope this helps
