Customer:

The swelling has spread to my right eye which is now very swollen including the lid

Dr. Rick :

I fear that you may have an abcess that is trying to spread to your orbit.

Dr. Rick :

This is not a good thing.........you really should go to the ER tonight for an evaluation.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

Customer:

yes. Thanks

Dr. Rick :

My father, who has been a DDS since 1956, and just happens to be visiting me at the moment, agrees -- get to the ER

Dr. Rick :
