Discuss with your healthcare provider during your visit how you will be notified of test results. Make sure you give your current contact information (especially your cell phone number) to the secretary at check-in.
For most testing for sexually transmitted infections, the office has a “no news is good news” policy. Most STI test results are available in 1 week. Pap test results are available in 2-3 weeks.
If a test is abnormal, you will be notified by a phone call. A message by on-line Student Health may also be sent. Mailed letters are sent with Pap test results.
Routine e-mail is not used to give results.
If the office is unable to contact you about an abnormal test result, your contact information listed in Banner may be used to reach you. Every effort is made by the office to maintain your confidentiality.
