Dr. Erikson has performed three hand surgeries for me - two trigger fingers and a carpal tunnel release. He also treated a broken wrist for me. I found him to be caring, an expert, very professional and proficient.

I am a nurse and was very impressed with Dr. Erickson from my first visit, through surgery and the post op visit, he was very thorough in his exam and explaining the alternative treatments for my condition, including the risks and benefits of each. He took the time to answer my questions. I was very pleased with my surgical outcome.

Sensitive to my hand problem and very gentle and attentive. Not at all hurried acting like so many doctors who seem to be thinking about the next patient. A refreshingly 'present' attitude. Good surgeon too and I healed really well.

Dr. Erickson performed surgery on my wrist. He did a great job fixing the torn cartilage I had. Always willing to spend a little extra time with me and very much committed to fixing me. I still had issues after surgery and he was not able to help me further. I sought a second opinion and found a doctor that was able to diagnose and fix my ongoing issues. No complaints on the surgery he did on me, just disappointed he wasn't able to diagnose the underlying issue.

Dr. John Erickson at the Raleigh Hand Center was heartily recommended to me by a friend. The friend had surgery with better-than-expected results. I was told the trip to Raleigh from Chapel Hill was well worth it. I had a cyst on my middle finger which needed to be removed. I made an appointment and was seen quickly and surgery required only a local anesthetic. Within days the finger was back to normal with little evidence of surgery. I could not have been happier!
