    I don't think there is a firm rule about giving test results and probably every office handles differently case by case. Some doctors might want to meet with you in person, get additional testing or refer you to another doctor for a 2nd opinion.

    It's Monday morning - I hope you have gotten through to the doctors office to get answers about the scan. Please let us know how it goes!
