Patients should ask about medical test results

Here are questions patients can ask at the doctor's office:

--Does this office send all test results to the doctor who's responsible for my care?

--Will my doctor see and sign off on all my test results?

--Will someone inform me of all my results, both normal and abnormal?

--Will it be documented in my chart that I've been informed?

--Is it OK for me to call after a certain time if I don't hear anything about my test results?
