in need of comforting advice doc

Aug 8, 2010

hi dr frascino!

You have no idea how comforting your words of reassurances are to us. I tried to review the library, but couldn't find an exact scenario. I was at the gym recently and while preparing for a bench press, i got slightly punctured at the knee area by a sharp thing embedded within the leather-cushioned reclinable seat/bed. I squeezed a tiny amount of blood from it. would u consider this a risk? my best guess is that it is not and im just being paranoid. But a simple yes or no answer from a figure authority like urself will really comfort me. will donate in your good foundation. keep up the good work!

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Worried Freak Gym Bunny,

I absolutely concur with your "best guess": no risk. Now get back to the bench press and finish your workout!

Thanks for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( It's warmly appreciated.

Be well. See you at the pec deck.

Dr. Bob
