I was sent to Dr. Erickson to review a head injury I received during a work related accident. He displayed an arrogant, cocky, rude and condescending level of professionalism. His body language was intimidating - he would laugh out loud if he disagreed with what I stated my symptoms were. He did NOT listen and made a diagnosis based on his warped interpretations of very minimal testing in his office. He asked few questions and answered my questions with few words of explanation. I would recommend that you seek other care if you want to recover and get the true diagnosis and treatment you deserve. I feel like doctors have an obligation to make sure that their patients have all the information about their injuries that is medically available. They should at the least, educate you on what to expect (not laugh at you!) and your options for treatment. I needed to hear his professional opinion about how he would care for me so that I could make a decision about what to expect. Dr. Erickson's lack of respect shown to me and my family during my one and only visit with him, was ethically sub-standard. The office visit with him showed NO doctor/patient environment that would in any way offer comfort, healing, kindness, compassion, dignity or respect. I requested another doctor immediately. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR FOR YOUR CARE!

If you are looking for a doctor that does NOT listen to you the patient, or even to your family, your concerns about your medical condition will never be addressed. This doctor tends to laugh out loud at you when he disagrees with what you are saying. Personally, I think that is disrespectful and rude. He provides you with limited options of care and few definitive reasons and statistics for why you are having the problems that you are having. He is very cocky and argumentative. But if you like that kind of person and do not care what kind of care you receive - then he is your guy! Good Luck!

I suffered a TBI. I began seeing Dr.Erickson after a Banner Hospital referred me to the concussion center. Initially, I felt relieved to have a doctor who promised if I had the therapies I would recover with no problem. After weeks of vestibular and vision therapy I am still struggling with symptoms. Dr. Erikson has become very arrogant and says I should be fine. He had the nerve to recommend counciling. He refuses to listen to your symptoms. My experience has mirrored some of the experiences described in other reviews. Beware Dr. Erickson. He should not be treating brain injuries.

When I first met Dr. Erickson I was so relieved to meet a doctor that specialized in concussions and promised me I would get better. I went two or three times a week to his office for therapies and doctor visits. I feel worse than I felt when I started seeing him. I have spent hundreds of dollars, been compliant with all the therapies and was told I need to see a therapist because I am anxious. The therapist said I was fine. Since I am not getting better Dr. Erickson has become arrogant and made me feel like it is my fault. My family and I can't believe it! I thought he was a neurologist until recently. I would strongly suggest going to Barrow's BRAINS center you are initially evaluated by a neurologist and your plan of care might actually may work. I have an appointment at Barrows next month and can't wait. Stay away from the Banner Concussion Center.
