Still recovering from the damages inflicted upon him - by his falsely saying he had read my labs - when he had not - and when he had unbeknownst to me accused me of not taking insulin - why would I stop taking insulin which I have taken for over 2 decades? Five weeks after telling me my labs looked good and denying my transfer to Swedish First Hill ER - I developed sepsis from an infection of which he could have read the lab result but did not -- and lied in the medical record that I was noncompliant with antibiotics I was not even prescribed for an infection he said I did not have --- this guy should not be practicing medicine.

I visited Dr. Erickson today for a fractured knee. He was really helpful in showing me my MRI and x-rays and explaining to me the problem and how to help get me back to full strength. Really grateful for his patience and help! I hope to not have to see him again (fingers crossed I don't get into another bike accident!) but would trust him with anything else in the future and definitely recommend him!

Dr. Erickson is thorough and efficient. His vast knowledge and experience shows when discussing treatment options. He is honest and provides excellent explanations. He is prompt in communicating via the online patient portal. He even called me to follow up so that I didn't have to come in for an additional visit. I live in NE Seattle and the commute to see him is worth it. I have recommended him to many of my friends.

I'm very happy with Dr. Erickson. While traditional primary care doctors just tell me to "stop doing the activity that is aggravating", Dr. Erickson understood that even though its not my profession, I'm an athlete, and it's critical to me that I be able to get back on the field as soon as possible. He moved quickly to do imaging of my hamstring, and got me on a PT plan right away. In a later visit, he pushed the PT to accelerate the recovery PT phases. This guy is a true athlete's doctor!

I was amazed at Dr Erickson’s depth of knowledge and extensive diagnostics. Within one visit he had me x-rayed and personally viewed the results with me. The x-rays showed one potential source of pain and he followed that up with an ultrasound. During the ultrasound, he explained what he saw and even brought in 2 other medical professionals to quickly confer and all agreed on the best course of action. I was so happy to walk in and have such a thorough analysis in only one visit and to walk out

He said he didn't have enough time to address both my health issues, which were pain related, and severe.. He said that I could choose one or the other! He didn't bother to give any treatment for pain relief, nor did he give proper referrals for follow up care with specialists. I wouldn't recommend this provider to an enemy.
