test accuracy

May 5, 2010

I sent you a question a little while ago about having two tests done through who use labcorp. For some reason I am unduly afraid that the results are wrong. What is the chance of this happening twice. I am a nervous wreck and hope that you answer my question. I really have developed a fear of all of this that is stopping me from living my life. The exposure would have been almost six years ago. The tests done were Hiv Antibody. I don't want to be a pest I just want to relax. Surely they wouldn't be in business if they gave out wrong results. I will make a donation if you answer this question and tell me how to make the donation. In fact after living through this fear I would love to make a donation.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello, uses all FDA-approved tests, which are run at LabCorp. Your fears are irrational and unwarranted. Your results are definitive, conclusive and reliable.

Be well. Stop worrying!
