Dr. Nissa I Erickson has the following 3 specialties

  • Pediatric Transplant Hepatology
  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Erickson really amazed me with her straight forward approach to my daughter's care. She treated me with respect and didn't waste time in helping my daughter. My daughter has very complex medical needs so we are so grateful to come across a physician of this caliber.

Worst experience with a peds doctor

Dr. and staff became irritated and argumentative when I called for test results. I was told by Dr. Erickson's care coordinator that she does not personally call patients regarding results. When I explained that I was not clear on next steps and diagnosis, I was told to reference the clinic's patient portal. It was not until I involved my primary care physician in the matter (2 weeks after the tests were done and after four attempts to reach the doctor on my own), that Dr. Erickson returned my call. At that point the clinic staff seemed more interested in defending their communication process than making sure I understood my results and next steps. I have never had a worse experience with a doctor.
