Dr. Erickson is just THE best! My old fashioned cowboy husband usually isn't a fan of any doctor but he thinks Dr. Erickson is top notch. We see him every six months for chronic ear issues and find him to be compassionate, gentle and very personable. We'd recommend him to anyone.

When I was at my lowest Dr Erickson got me in next morning. He listened to me, explained my condition and after over 2 months I am on the road to recovery with my condition. Perfect care, I would recommend Dr Erickson to my family and friends for sure.
