Promptly was given initial appointment, and Dr. Erb listened and showed concern and explained nerve ablation procedure, which I agreed to beginning with the cortisone injection. Three weeks later I have not been scheduled despite my calls and a call by my GP. Crystal has called back twice to curtly inform me "it is being processed." I checked with my insurance carrier, and Dr. Erb's office has not submitted a request. This injection has been fully covered in the past by my insurance. I am ready to find another physician. Can't stand the pain any longer!

1st visit, Dr. Web took time which is becoming obsolete in the medical field these days. I left feeling well informed, as I also took my time and asked questions to make ME comfortable with decisions on procedure. Also took time to fill out my paperwork Great 1st visit, wonderful doctor and office staff.

My life has never been the same. Not in a good way. In 2020 I had cervical facet injections with Dr Erb and after the second set of injections I ended up in the Sarasota Memorial ER with high blood pressure and horrible upper back pain that I am still dealing with 18 months later. I called the office several times and they just gave me more medications. My life has not been the same since July 22 2020. I now have chronic upper back pain and neck pain.

I’ve been a long-standing patient of Dr. Erb. He’s been very helpful with my “pain management “, and I continue to be “my best” with his practice. He’s helped me from crawling to walking without pain due to auto accidents, falls from vertigo etc.. His focus on my needs, have always come first, then he looks at my options, explaining everything to my understanding, then together we decide the best procedure to go with. I’m always referring my friends and acquaintances to Dr Erb, and they’re continuing referrals from them selves, continue to be a very positive and welcoming “thank you” back to me. He’s the best in his field. My “quality of life “ would not have been the same, had I not been introduced to Dr. Erb via my Primary Care Physician since 2006

Dr Erb has great bedside manor and is one of the smartest doctors in Sarasota. He listens and I feel like he truly hears me, that is so hard to find these days and this was just a day for medication refills. He is always in a great, uplifting mood. I have been his patient for 20 years. I have referred Dr Erb many times!

12 year patient unable to keep appt due to Covid, tried to reschedule numerous times NEVER received a return call had to call every week for 2 months.
