thank you

Nov 30, 2007

Dr. Bob, I wrote you twice over the past week and a half concerning the possibility of infection during a recent haircut. I was reading through the archives via the search feature of this website, and found that this issue had been discussed before, and infection in such a way is very unlikely. I want to apologize for pestering you, and I'm beginning to suspect that my continued concern despite having read a number of responses to this issue is unwarranted, and most likely due to an anxiety "disorder". That having been said, thank you again for your time and effort, you are a tremendous help to those in need, and I plan on making a donation to your foundation. Happy Holidays.

Response from Dr. Frascino


I'm delighted you found the information and reassurance you needed in the archives! As it turns out, about 99% of the questions and concerns cramming their way into my cyber-mailbox on a continual basis I've already responded to! I wish more folks would use the archives, as there is only one of me and lots and lots and lots of "yous!"

I absolutely agree your concern about acquiring HIV from your haircut experience is completely unwarranted!

Thank you for your holiday wishes and donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (

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

Dr. Bob
