Why would a doctor refuse to tell a patient anything about his biopsy results over the phone?

Asked by Aster (19984points) August 9th, 2011

I have a friend who had a biopsy of a lump in his esophagus. He called the office for the results twice and they refused to reveal a thing; said he had to come into the office. Is this legal? Typical?
