Meet Dr. Greg Erickson

Philosophy of Care

Like many physicians, I became interested in medicine because it allows me the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives. I strive to treat each patient how I would want a member of my own family to be treated. I take the time to listen to my patients and use relevant physical exam findings and imaging studies to make an accurate diagnosis. I then involve my patients in a shared decision-making process to formulate a treatment plan that best suits their individual needs.

Personal Interests

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family at our cabin. I enjoy traveling, road & mountain biking, alpine skiing and hiking.
