I've been going to Dr Erickson for over 30 years. I've moved to areas distance from his office & tried other doctors. None of them are as good as he is & choose to travel the distance to get care from him. I've had back issues, great at adjustments, had skin cancer on my nose, removed it and can't see procedure was done, ETC. He is kind, informative and very knowledgeable at all he does. Great all around doctor. Have other friends that go to him & all agree. I highly recommend Dr Erickson.
