We were told to take the medical within 28 days and send a reciept when we'd done it.

Thank you - good to know its 28 days for the medical itself. At least if the doctors are slow to send the results, it doesn't cause a compliance problem for you with the CO.

I havent heard of anyone having their test results submitted the same day that they took the tests.
i had mine submitted the day after, first i had the appointment for the blood test,s ect then i went for my X rays a couple of days later and the day after my x ray i had them submitted, the blood test,s results usually dont take that long to come through 1-3 days for HIV but if you have a oral test for HIV it takes 15-20 mins for the antibody results.

i wish to see the smiles of loved ones reunited after months of waiting, god bless you all

They had the results of my urine test like 10 minutes after I did it. It was kind of hilarious. I had to drive 2.5 hours to get to my panel doc, and once I did, I had to GO. LOL! But I was 30 minutes early for my appointment. They were technically closed for lunch. I went into the office and knocked on the receptionist window til someone came out and BEGGED to do my urine test right then or I wouldn't have anything left for later. Hahahahaha. Fortunately they were all just coming back from lunch, so, since I was the only patient in there at the time, it wasn't a big deal. They let me do it and the lab lady ran it right away... easy peasy. So since they had a lab on premises it couldn't have taken that long for the blood test, etc. But I can understand that it takes time for her to type up and input her findings, I guess. I suppose I'm just used to everything being instantaneous when it's electronic.
