We do approx 50,000 paps per yr.  Our turn around for outside cases(not
collected in the hospital but at dr. offices etc.  is 2-3 days from the
time we recieve the specimen and when we complete the report.  Sometimes we
will extend that up to a week at the most if we have people on vacation or
if there is a weekend and/or holiday involved.
