I clicked "Excellent" but nothing happened. I have a question > Dr. Rickett noticed a red bump on my lower right eyelid. It's still there, no change. If it doesn't change or go away at what point should I be concerned and what should I do? Norman Pender

Other than having to wait a little over 40 minutes after my appointment to see the doctor, everything was great. I even recommended him to a friend about an hour after I left the office.

My experience with Dr. Rickett was great. He was sincere, shook my hand, apologized for my wait. He also took his time explaining the treatment to me. He was very thorough and I felt that he really cares about his patients.
