    Does anyone know how many days takes Labcorp for reporting back your results for the following AB blood tests?

    IgG HHV6
    IgG CMV
    IgG c.pneumoniae

    Thanks!

    I didn't have CMV tested through them for Dr. Chia since I already had that done, but I had coxsackie B, echovirus, C. pneumoniae, HHV6, and creatine kinase done. I had the blood drawn on the 2nd and it says the results were reported on the 10th. It took another 2 or 3 weeks after that for LabCorp to send me my copy of the results. When you check in to get the blood drawn make sure you ask them to send you a copy of the results as well.

    If you call their customer service number, they can tell you how many days the testing takes for sure.

    I usually have results in 3 days or so and I have them faxed so I get them as soon as they are released.

    @Sinclair, are you not being tested for enterovirus as well?

    Many thanks @halcyon and @Ema !!!

    I actually have IgG + for CMV, C.pneumoniae, EBV, and, I may assume VZV (chickenpox at 17 y.o), however in my country, titers are not reported, thus without titers I cannot know whether these are of concern or not.

    Dr. Chia ordered cox B and echo panels from ARUP through Labcorp, of course.

    I was aware of the 2-3 weeks in advance but I decided to come just a week before my appointment by the end of December, get the blood drawn at Labcorp, and having the appointment in person with the higher number of results I can show at the appointment (those from my signature below, included) and waiting for the other results (ARUP, I assume) for the phone call follow up.

    Being there for three weeks before or postponing the appointment until April-March, were not appealing alternatives to me...thus I hope to have those IgGs titers within this week....this is the idea....

    Thanks again for your reply!

    OK good. I guess logistically that's the best way to do it.
