    My doctor is part of a group that has an online portal. I can see test results, send/get messages from doctor/staff/specialists etc.

    For test results, I can also see past results and see a graph of the differences.

    I like it.

    I have blood work done a week prior to my appointment so we can discuss results when I see her. Also use the online portal for reminders and reminders.

    I like Aunt Bea's idea, I'm going to ask if I can have my tests done a few days prior to an office visit so I can review the results with the PCP.
    My doctor recommends coming in for the blood tests, 2 weeks before your scheduled appointments. No appointment is needed (for the tests) and the result pop up on my patient portal a couple of days later. You see the results before your visit, as does the doc.

    Well, I've been trying for a month to get into the PatientPortal system. I spoke with the doctor's office 3 times and they confirmed my phone number was correct. On Monday this week, I asked to speak to the office manager and she said, "Oh...there's a code you can use instead of the phone number." Why didn't the office girls ever give me this code??? Who knows. Anyway, I put that code in and Bingo, got right in. I have been wanting to look at my bloodwork results I had done on Oct. 8, but, guess what...it isn't in there! I'm assuming the doctor's office has to put those results in???

    They will mail results or post them on their patient portal, if I ask them to. Otherwise, no, even if there are odd results.
    When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

    Nope only time the doctors office would call was when there is something wrong with the results.
    ....now living in Texas a bigger problem is getting the doctor to show up for his/her appointment.
    I left one because of the wait and now my current doctor is running 45 minutes+ late after the appointment time.

    This new doctor of our is ridiculously slow. The first appt. we waited almost 2 hours! I'm calling the office on Monday to ask about my bloodwork results. Terrible doctors here.
