Positive tests

In my experience and writings , negative or normal test results can be quite important in making a diagnosis, so not communicating them to the patient can be withholding key information. All results positive or negative should be communicated. Further withholding them can sometimes lead to repeating the test

Many doctor's offices only call or mention to patients positive test results that have been undertaken (particularly lab tests). Is that a good thing and does it in any way impact diagnosis?

Also, what are the effects of the new electronic portals on diagnosis. It is a big change in medicine.
