Patient Comments (3)

I had to give one star but I want to give zero. Horrible bed side manner. Unable to answer any questions. Sent home with heavy narcotics and no time frame of when things should turn up (Days? Weeks? Months?). Worst experience and still need answers.

More then one hour over scheduled office visit to get room. Re-read image results and reiterated previous Dr. recommendations. Seem very knowledgeable and professional. Maybe too much.

Dr. Erickson did a disk fusion for me. I was very scared but the pain was more than I could handle. Dr. Erickson listened to me and took a lot of notes and time with my visit.
