Palm Desert, CA |
I have found Dr. Erlenson to be very compassionate and helpful.
in Indio, CA |
The whole office is calm. I usually get in before my allotted time. He is very pleasant and never rushed. The staff is just great. Overall experience is very high.
Carelessly performed a cervical injection which caused a permanent spinal cord injury permanently harming my mother who is now on oxygen and has an awful quality of life. He changed his records three times after the procedure to cover his tracks and lied in his deposition. RUN to another provider for your pain management needs.

Excellent Doctor and staff that is very thorough and show genuine care to help patients manage pain.

After suffering with back pain for 9 months, 2 MRIs, physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractor and six other doctor visits , Dale , Sadaf, PA, and Dr Erlenson were so different. First Dale found a place for me to lie down to escape pain while I filled out paperwork for apot. Second, they asked questions to properly diagnose my potential pain sources, explained evertything clearly and prioritized a plan to address. I am optimistic I will find my life again thanks to this team.

I had upper back/mid-scapular pain on most every movement. Dr. Erlendson palpated the area and injected it...........within 5 minutes the pain had disappeared and has not returned (3 Years now). I highly recommend him.....he is efficient, caring and professional.

I find Dr. Erlendson & his staff to be friendly, they care and they are very skilled at their crafts. Dr. Erlendson seems to honestly care about helping me get out of the burden of having chronic pain. I am new to the desert and found him thru an ER nurse who said she thought he was one of the best surgeons she'd ever worked with. I haven't had surgery with him. He has worked with alternative treatments for me.
