Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Neil,

I don't think you're an English idiot! I just think your English could use a bit of help in the spelling, grammar and punctuation departments but it hasn't reached idiocy levels yet.

Do I think you need to retest, because you didn't cover up your pricked finger? No, Neil. You would need HIV testing if you didn't cover up your prick, but the pricked finger is not a problem, OK?

Look, Neil. You've had 10 negative tests out to 12 months following your massage "parolour" sex-perience. That's exactly 9 tests too many already! Stop testing and stop worrying about an illness you could not possibly have!

Donations to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be made through the Foundation's Web site at www.concertedeffort.org. Just click on the donate tab. Thanks for your willingness to help others who weren't as fortunate as you in dodging the HIV bullet.

Stay safe, Neil, and you'll stay well, OK?

By the way, it's sunny here, too.

Dr. Bob
