We understand when you’re sent for a test, it can be an anxious wait for the results. At Port Melbourne Medical, we aim to make accessing your results as easy as possible. Your primary care doctor will talk to you about the best way to view your results.
We have the online system Ozdocs, where you can submit a results request and pay a small fee of $20. This doesn’t allow you access to your results, but is a mini virtual consultation. Your doctor replies with your results and an explanation of the findings, and the next steps. You’ll need to be patient, as it can take your doctor two or three days to respond.
If your doctor finds an abnormal result, you’ll receive a call from our clinic to make a non-urgent appointment within the following two weeks to discuss your results. You may also receive a text message reminding you to come in for a results appointment.
It’s important that you return for your results appointment or your Ozdocs results appointment for any imaging, or if you have gone to a different pathology company than listed on your referral. yIf your primary care doctor is not linked electronically with the pathology or radiology company, there’s a chance your doctor hasn’t received your results.
