Dr. Kenneth Erickson, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I enjoy treating a wide range of psychiatric conditions, from depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and panic to ADHD and sleep disorders. My focus of treatment is on getting to know the patient as an individual, and working together to select the best course of medication and/or counseling. I have special interest in depression, adult ADHD, anxiety and panic, and bipolar disorders, and like to provide cognitive-behavioral therapy with suggestions to try out between sessions to maximize life quality. Many of my cases also involve stress from work, family, marital strains, and other environmental challenges. I have been in practice for nearly 30 years, and have worked both in hospital settings and outpatient clinics throughout those years. Patient feedback as we work together is appreciated - such as reporting side effects - and I have found with responding quickly to patients there is a much more favorable outcome for you.

I thought is was a very effective meeting and i felt very comfortable. I had an apointment late in the day and we got through the diagnosis in a timely manner. I was able to bring up LGBTQ issues comfortably, andi am normally hesitant. Dr. Erickson explained the different medication options and why he chose what he did. When i had teouble with insurance, he walked me through using a cupon so i could avoid delaying treatment for much less than the full price of the drug.

I thought Dr. Erickson was excellent. I had never been to someone like him before, but he was direct but respectful as well as thorough. He hand wrote every answer to his question and was very attentive, asked clarifying questions. Itwas a great experience for me being my first time seeing someone of his profession.

Dr Erickson has been a PARTNER in treating my mental health. How rare today!! He truly listens to me, and finds value in my perspective. It’s very hard to find a doctor who has empathy, compassion & knowledge AND survives ourcurrent medical system. He’s a quiet man who doesn’t judge (trust me I would’ve triggered that)! - and has a kind heart. He still uses handwritten notes and hard copies of scripts. He remembers important but small details and knows who I am EVERY time we meet. Also, he required me to drop down on my anxiety medication, just to become his patient. And we’ve dropped my controlled substance script to almost nothing - so I can’t imagine him “pushing pills”... While I struggle sometimes, I would rather be upset because I’m on LESS medication than because I’m on MORE than I “need”. I’d know. Seriously. Also, I trust that he won’t let me suffer. Either way, he’s a great psychiatrist that takes the time to talk as well as medicate. And he’s just plain ole nice. :)

I've seen Dr. Erickson twice now. Both times he's been a pill pusher. I do not appreciate that. However, he does have a very prompt schedule. He seems sweet. But I don't feel like I have been heard. Unfortunately, he isthe only Dr. On Zocdoc in the categories I'm searching for.

Everything with Dr. Erickson has been great! His calm presence was helpful in working through anxiety issues. Only complaint would be interruptions during session, but they are infrequent so not a huge deal.

It was a great visit. He listened to the issues effecting me and what medications I have been taking. He suggested an increase in one of them and that is making a difference already.

Such a relief! My favorite Dr. Appt. ever! I was greeted with a smile (even though I was super late??), I felt "heard", respected and cared for! Keep in mind, I've had the WORST time finding care since switching insurance plans!I have left the last few appointments, with other "new-to-me" providers, bawling my head off..feeling "misunderstood" and "judged". This guy is the real deal! Felt like chatting with my own dad...but this Dad 'gets' everything that comes with ADHD and has a wealth of knowledge and a lifetime of experience with patients like me! Easy to talk to, helpful, knowledgeable, kind, and flexible! Thank you Dr. Erickson! Now you're stuck with me!!??

Dr. Erickson is kind and I didn't have to wait too long. He was sympathetic and helpful, although he often got distracted by texts and other notifications on his phone. Since he doesn't have a receptionist, his office is very smalland he does EVERYTHING in his office. It's also worth noting that he doesn't have a waiting area apart from a single chair in the hallway outside his building, so it's a bit awkward if you show up early like I did! Nevertheless, it was a comfortable conversation and he was very helpful. Will definitely be glad to go back in a few weeks!

I went to see Dr. Erickson about issues I was having trouble dealing with at my job. He did not take my concerns seriously, answering phone calls during our appointments for other patients and not keeping on schedule. I would not recommend.
