Dr Erb is the greatest pain management doctor I've ever had!!!! He's kind, compassionate and very gentle when giving injections! I've never had the same quality of treatment since and am glad I'll be back in the area soon so he will (hopefully) be my doctor again! (I've been out of state for over 5 years..so ignore the number of visits in the past 2 years! I had quite a few years of office visits before I moved!)

I have worked with Dr. Erb for 5-years. He is dedicated, kind, a strong advocate and well versed in the field of pain management & related fields - from non-invasive, to procedures, medications & other. Dr. Erb is incredible - his office staff is beyond burned out; scheduling - is a nightmare; obtaining records - good luck; getting timely appointments - a TOTAL failure. DR. ERB is INCREDIBLE and I trust him fully. Something needs to change for an incredible physician > in a crummy office

Absolutely LOVE Dr. Erb....he is an amazing, caring doctor who listens and tries to come up with the best plan for the patient. Spends time with you, friendly. Now scheduling is an entirely different issue.Their calls go through KWO- I NEVER get a return call or follow up or reminder call anymore.They are rude on the phone if you can ever reach anyone which I have tried for weeks.They need to have scheduling go through their office not KWO or they are going to loose more patients.

I currently see Dr. Erb for chronic back pain. He is extremely caring and listens carefully to you about your complaints. He has been my doctor for at least 6 years or more. I would recommend him to anyone suffering with chronic back pain.

I can't get in. Filled out new patient request form twice. Keep calling and no one picked up on appointment line. Been two weeks. Is this a joke?
