Myriad wouldn't send the results directly to the patient. That's the whole point to have a doctor involved, so the patient recieves some counseling and advice and consolation and explanation, and not just like, kaboom, here comes a bunch of half-intelligible genetic-speak on a form.
And breaking the news on the phone isn't quite serving this purpose BTW.
I wouldn't tell if you have a bad obgyn, really. But it is scary when the physician blurts out the supposed test result of the top of one's head, without ever looking at the lab report... (I'm sure that's what happened ... your sister reminded about the test and the doctor was like, oops, forgot about it, no use looking for the paperwork, i just tell it the way I remember it)
