New study on stress caused by waiting for test results

Any time a patient is waiting for test results, she is likely to feel some stress. Dr. Price mentions his own experience with this particularly awful uncertainty in the discussion of his life-changing experience. That’s why Dr. Price will inform you of your test results or biopsies as soon as he has them, either in the office or by telephone. If you do not want to be given test results over the phone, please be sure to let him know.
