Would it be possible to negotiate with a practice’s  laboratory provider that at a minimum all results are mailed and then abnormal results could have an additional faster track notification?

Lest we forget, patients are people and physicians may be patients.

Please consider the “Golden Rule” and good manners.

And, of course, the reassurance to a patient that we can convey.

If not the physician, perhaps the ministering angel of the bedside (nurse) or another physician extender who has empathy and compassion.

Some of the incomprehensible telephone reports (or not report) that I, as a patient, have received from physicians’ staffs are rude and anxiety provoking, at least.

I am a Pathologist.

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.
