Molecular Reporting 

For negative results PCG Molecular will send your patients an email on your behalf within 24 hours if patient results are negative for “watch” or high risk results. Being placed on a watch is no reason for patients to panic. It doesn’t mean they have a virus. All it means is that we need to watch their cases more closely. We will send you a report and give you a sample letter to send to your patients that communicates the results and what next steps to follow. for positive results. You will receive a detailed report for those patients that test positive for any pathogens. These patients may require additional tests after treatment, along with a personal call. We can advise you of next steps and referrals if you need them.
