Is this WOO-HOOable?

Mar 11, 2007

Dear Dr. Bob: I am the "nervous ninny" who sent her boyfriend to get tested twice (negative results). Your response gave me the courage to get my own test - Home Access HIV 1 - negative result after 9 1/2 months post exposure. I am happy to say that after the negative result, I no longer obsess over little bumps, bruises, or gum irritations. While I would love to woo-hoo loudly, I want your reassurance once again that I don't have to worry about HIV2. We are both heterosexual, don't do drugs and in a low risk demographic category. Do I have your permission to WOO-HOO? I sent a modest donation to your foundation recently and hope that it will help even if in a small way. Thank you once again for your time.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Ms. Ninny,

Yes, your 9 1/2-month negative Home Access HIV-1 test is definitive, conclusive and Dr. Bob-certified WOO-HOOable!

Be well. Stay well. (Yes, you are indeed "well.")

Dr. Bob
