Customer Question
My husband has detention...

My husband has detention as well as several physical problems. As of last evening, his feet and ankles are too swollen to wear regular socks. Since this is another long holiday weekend, do I need to take him to the ER?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Severe swelling is new. More or less normal swelling is normal. He has a fairly low level arthritis.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I see my typing was incorrectly corrected. His main problem is dementia.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
