Went to see mom on her birthday. She wasn't herself. Now on the phone she says she has knee cap dislocation. Should I go back and see her doctor?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Yes, i would recommend you go with her to see her doctor. Most likely he will suggest conservative treatment with bracing, medication for symptoms and not surgery.
