Care Philosophy

"Patients should be fully informed about their condition and given options for treatment and then mutually decide on the plan. I don't believe in cookie-cutter medicine, it should be customized for each patient. I don't believe in treating a lab result or a disease on paper, I treat actual patients."

in The Woodlands, TX |
Doc Erickson is one of the best docs around. Easy to talk with and discussion your health concerns. But my insurance changed and he is not in the Aetna coverage. And one day when our company changes again, I will go right back to him.
Thank you Ray, I'm glad to hear that, by the way I joined another primary care group and start taking Aetna again :) Take care
