However they were willing to let my DH drop by and pick up a copy of his SA results the same day they received it, however if he wanted more info or to go over it with the Dr then he would have had to make an appointment.

For me and DH some of my labs were posted on the health portal ahead of RE appointment.  DH’s SA was not posted and was just brought up at the appointment.  He probably could have called to get the results sooner but there wouldn’t be much point.  You could start trying to be healthier right away but you can’t really address anything immediately.  It might be better to wait rather than go crazy googling whatever the results are.

Both times, they waited to give us results at the consult. The 2nd time, the consult wasn’t until 2 weeks later, so we requested them sooner and they faxed them to my office, but they wouldn’t tell us over the phone.

My husbands SA results were ready and posted on his online portal within 2 hours. This is in California.

We got ours the same day via phone, so I think it all depends on the physician.

Ours were posted over the clinic portal within a few hours. And we received that notice via email to both of us. But our RE did the SA in house.
