I am having Dr. Erickson replace both of my knees. The practice is very accommodating. I have been having other health problems that I have had to deal with first. The entire staff is very helpful in arranging for equipment I will need after my surgery. You know the finest reference is to talk to people that he works with yet not in his employ. I was in Banner Hospital meeting with a friend and talked to one of the nurses who often time cares for his patient. She told me that Dr. Erickson is the best. She is in her early thirties and told Dr. Erickson that he cannot retire until she may need new knees in future. Now that is a complement. You want the best? Go see Dr. Erickson.

I have had Dr. Erickson/Scott perform shoulder surgery-carpal tunnel surgery-knee maintenance and I would never let anyone else touch me. They are the most professional people I have ever had and I am 65 years old.
