Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

I'm not sure what "doubt and worries" you want me to clear up. All of your lab work (various STDs and HIV screening) clearly indicate "nonreactive" and/or "negative." Therefore it should be painfully obvious you don't have any of these ailments (including HIV). It really is just that simple and straightforward. You've tested well beyond the window period and you are definitively negative on all accounts.

Donation information for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at www.concertedeffort.org. Yes, you can use credit cards. Just click on the donate tab.

Congratulations on your negative tests!

Be well.

Dr. Bob
