The time period varies to receive an opinion, I usually see an opinion in 3-6 months. However, responses have been slowed down, in particular in the Allentown area where I practice, my the institution of the new WCAIS system, a new management program being implemented by labor and industry. You can always call and ask the staff when they anticipate an opinion.
