Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Barry from Indonesia,

1. No, your negative HIV tests out to seven months are conclusive, definitive and WOO-HOO-able! HIV is not your problem. No way. No how. No additional HIV tests are warranted.

2. Yes, absolutely.

3. No.

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

Be well.

Dr. Bob

I wish I could give you a big hug!
Will I be HIV infected
