Hello. I'm Dr Chip

By incubation period did you mean the time for symptoms to appear or how long it would take a test for those to be positive?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
