I was told that I would get my result for my [...] test within 2 days after the visit to the doctors. I waited 3 days to hear back from my doctor or her medical assistant to follow up with me but did not hear anything back from them. [...] I called the following day only to find out that the test was not run and they could not explained to me why that was. I took [...] only to find out that they do not have any answer for me on what was causing my condition. It was not a fun experience to was anxiously for the result while feeling miserable caused by the [...] that was given to me. I am very unhappy about this whole experience.
