Did you try calling your doctor's office and asking if it can be done without actually seeing the doctor? Sometimes if you have seen your doctor in the recent past s/he will let the nurse or tech do the TB test without actually being seen by the doctor.
I thnk that if you just call them back and explain your situation and your time frame they will understand and help you. This is something that you don't need to see the doc for. The nurse can do it- but remember that you have to return within 24 hrs for them to "read" your arm for a reaction.
