For rapid tests, we will perform the test in front of you, and you will have results before you leave. For any lab tests that must be sent out, if your results are positive, we will call you. If your results are negative, we operate on the “No News is Good News” philosophy. This means that we will not call you if your results come back negative. So, if it has been a week since you were tested with us, and you have not received a call or voicemail from a.l.p.h.a., your results were negative. If you enrolled in the patient portal, you can log in to the portal, click Records, and then click Lab Results and view your results there as well.
