I am 81 years old and I have been seeing Dr. Erickson for over 21 years. Dr. Erickson is the most knowledgeable, caring compassionate physician I have had the privilege of knowing. In addition TO BEING A GREAT ORTHOPEDIC PHYSICIAN, Dr. Richard Erickson, PHD, is the BEST HUMAN BEING I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF KNOWING.

Dr. Erickson performed my knee replacements. He listens to his patients and explains procedures thoroughly. When I look at others who have had the same surgery elsewhere, I know I went to the right doctor. You can barely tell I had knee surgery let alone a knee replacement. I highly recommend Dr. Erickson.
