Hey Dr Chip. Earlier I...
Hey Dr Chip. Earlier I communicated it concerned about my daughter's knee and some issues she was having with a dislocating. Since our last correspondence Ernie has really been fine. No problems walking or even running occasionally. No pain no swelling.
I've been having to wear a brace on it when she's walking which she usually takes off when she's doing exercises for her name or when resting.
My question to you is this. She has an appointment scheduled for this Wednesday with a pediatric orthopedist. However I'm questioning whether or not to keep this appointment based on the fact she has no symptoms at this time.
Do you see any value in her keeping this appointment?
Thank you

What exactly was the appointment for?

Just to take a look at that knee again to make sure everything was okay.

Well I'm really not supposed to tell you not to do what a doctor has said for you to do

But I see absolutely nothing now that that visit would accomplish

Thank you. That was my thinking too. I think what I'll do is just push it back a month and if she has another episode of dislocation then at least we'll have her on the books for an appointment. Until then I'll have her do her knee strengthening exercises.
Does that sound reasonable to you? Thanks

Sounds like a plan

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
