Hi Not-So-Worried Married Guy,

I'm glad to be of service.

Yes, you are now Dr. Bob-certified to WOO-HOO! Do not throw your phone, credit cards or wallet away. They are not infectious and certainly not harmful in any way. Stop worrying and start the baby making! (It's much more fun!)

Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org). Be well. Stay well. (Yes, you are indeed well!)

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Worried and Married Guy,

I was hoping you would review the information in the archives rather than get increasingly desperate waiting for a personal response from me. (The reassurance you desire has been waiting for you in the archives! Check it out!)

HIV is not transmitted via casual contact. Period. End of story!

Responding to your specific questions:

1. Absolutely not.

2. Absolutely not.

3. Absolutely no risk whatsoever.

4. There is absolutely no medical indication for HIV testing.

Please note if HIV were so easily transmitted, it would have wiped out the entire planet long ago.

Donation information for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at www.concertedeffort.org. Just click on the "donate" tab!

Be well. Stop worrying.

Dr. Bob
