Patient Comments (1)
in Colchester, CT |
I had a sudden redness and extreme pain in my right eye. Had other facial pain also. Made urgent appt. with Dr Dempsey and he told me to come right in. He examined me and sent me straight to an Ophthalmologist as part of Hartford Hospital and asked for ENT consult and MRI. He had accurately diagnosed orbital cellulitis, which can be fatal. I was admitted to Hartford Hospital and placed on numerous super antibiotics and steroids IV. Turns out I also had Pseudomonus. He saved my life, literally.
