Good Afternoon,
The regulation promulgated by the New York State Department of Health under NY law sets the following:
10 NYCRR ยง 58-1.8 Results of tests to be reported only to physicians or other authorized persons. No person shall report the result of any test, examination or analysis of a specimen submitted for evidence of human disease or medical condition except to a physician, his agent, or other person authorized by law to employ the results thereof in the conduct of his practice or in the fulfillment of his official duties. Reports shall not be issued to the patients concerned except with the written consent of the physician or other authorized person, except that information concerning blood type and Rh factor may be provided in writing to the individual whose blood was tested without the consent of the individual's physician.

Therefore, a physician has the opportunity to notify the laboratory performing the test to forward the results to his/her patient.

Warmly,
Avrum
