lots of labs do the elisa in batches, it takes 96 i think. i know this is the way blood donations are tested, it is cost efficient. the v a did my test 3 years ago it took 2 weeks.

I can tell you that when a doctor orders blood tests it is usually a CBC and electrolyte panel and perhaps a blood culture. He won't test for HIV or any other STD unless he is given reason to believe he should (i.e., your sexual history, drug abuse history, etc. info they might is ask about during the exam/history taking). The doctor will tell you what it is that he is testing your blood for. There are privacy laws in the U.S. that protect us from things like that happening.

Good luck.
