What is the turnaround time of HIV 1 & 2 Ab Screen (Reflexive)?

What is the turnaround time of HIV 1 & 2 Ab Screen (Reflexive)? My ObGyn & PCP told me they usually get the results the next day, but the lab is saying 3 days. I'm low risk, but waiting 3 days would drive me crazy. What is the most typical turnaround time?
Hi--it depends somewhat on the particular lab but the test results should be within 3 days. If your doctors have told you they usually get the test results back the next day, then there's every reason to think that will be the case, but certainly no more than three days.
