Patient Comments (1)
in Bayville, NJ |
I always recommend Dr. Erickson to friends. I have known him for years as he was also my mom's doctor. Yesterday I went to him for my routine eye exam because my optometrist retired. I discussed some issues I was having, and he took the time to listen. I have never had such a thorough routine eye exam before. He paid attention! He is professional and thoughtful, and he short-cuts nothing. I trust him completely. Office staff was fun, too!
