Dr. Erikstad is very thorough, and listened to all of my concerns. After 10 years of pain, I finally got someone to listen to my biggest complaint instead of ignoring the problem. My life has changed for the better because of Dr. Erikstad.

Cold personality. First words out of her mouth upon entering the examination room was "if you don't like me, you can find a new doctor." I went with my wife for her apportionment and the doctor never acknowledged my presence until my wife introduced me.
