Jill is great. She is professional but also kind. She listened to my history, was not hurried, discussed treatment options, giving my ideas her attention. I have complete confidence in her.

December 15, 2013

the best available

November 25, 2013

I was really scared going in -- felt wonderful going out

November 05, 2013

i would recommend this care provider to anyone out there!! i was very very pleased with the team that worked with me and helped me with my surgery!!!

November 04, 2013

Jill Erickson is the best PA I have ever had. She listens carefully and I feel that she is concerned about me. She has always given me answers which were correct and logical. She also instills a great deal of confidence that what is happening is what should happen and will eventually be to my benefit. I really appreciate Jill.

October 29, 2013

ALREADY RECOMMENDED

October 28, 2013

I wish all the providers were like Jill. She is very informative and makes me feel comfortable. I have had to spend more time recently in Dr's offices and she is by fare one of the best.

October 21, 2013

My appointment with Jill Erickson went very well: she was clear and succinct in her explanations, and very caring and empathetic. I didn't feel rushed. She's very professional.

October 21, 2013

I have had a unwanted reaction to one of the shots I got during the visit, but that is certainly not the fault of the practitioner. In fact, my follow-up calls have been handled with sincere concern for my well being.

October 15, 2013

You have to keep Jill Erickson. Enough said.

October 14, 2013

I love, love, LOVE this center and all the people who we have come in contact with there!! They are fantastic! We do not however, get to ever see or spend much time with his actual Ortho. We deal more with his PA which is great because she is AWESOME too. I am sure it is set up to be this way but it would be nice if the actual ortho performing the surgery would spend just a little more time with the patient or even take place in at least one of the follow up visits post op. Not that the PA is not qualified because they are. It's just re-assuring/comforting at times, to hear from the actual MD as to your progress and recovery.

October 08, 2013

Jill is excellent...she knows the field and seems quite aware of patient issues. I felt she thoroughly addressed my concerns and had excellent recommendations.

September 03, 2013

I am so appreciative of the care and concern shown by the medical staff & nurses. It is outstanding.

July 29, 2013

Jill Erickson is always pleasant and takes the time needed to answer questions!

July 02, 2013

PA Jill Erickson was excellent!

June 11, 2013

Dr. Jill explained everything and we have recommended the clinic to many many friends who have needed knee replacements-you are the best :)

May 15, 2013

P. A. Erickson, said she would recommend any treatment I might need in the future at the So. Jordan clinic. I told her it was closer (10 min.) to our home. I appreicated her help.

May 07, 2013

Jill Erickson is just wonderful. She is knowledgeable and very efficient. She also seems to really care about her patients. She is the best one ever to inject my knee and have it last a long time. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

May 06, 2013

I honestly would have preferred to see Dr. Peters. Jill is great, but she didn't seem sure of what to do in my case.

April 30, 2013

Jill was excellent. I appreciated her honesty and knowledge.

April 22, 2013

PA Jill Erickson, spent time with me answering questions, she made me feel I was her on concern at the appointment time. She did not rush with me, thanks Jill.

April 08, 2013

VERY GOOD

March 12, 2013

She did not seem to know what things meant. When reading my EMG result she said multiple times, "I don't know what that means." These types of comments severely decreased my confidence in her and her ability to actually know what was going on. I felt that she did not know or really care what my concern was. I was not able to give her the 'easy' answer so I felt she just brushed me off and passed me off to someone else by telling me to go to PT.

March 08, 2013

Jill is always very pleasant and courteous

March 05, 2013

Jill Erickson is a professional and knows her job. She is an outstanding care provider.

February 20, 2013

We have been very impressed and so pleased with the care and service we have received from this department. Can't say enough about the process from beginning to this point.

February 19, 2013

practically non-verbal

February 11, 2013

Jill was caring trteated me then gave me options we could do if this didn't work

February 04, 2013

Ms. Erickson treated me extremely well.

January 14, 2013

I received the best of care and service. Very happy with all the staff.

January 08, 2013

Very positive experience!

January 01, 2013

Everybody at the clinic treats me extremely well

December 26, 2012

Jill Erickson gets my vote for excellence! I was very satisfied with her help in planning for future needs; she gave me the info I need to get ready for future action on my right knee as well as helping immediately by giving me palliative treatment.

December 26, 2012

Jill took time to copy for me a stack of information about applying for Medicaid, for my daughter.

December 18, 2012

Jill Erickson does a great job of spending plenty of time with me; she doesn't act like I'm just another patient on her to-do lsit for the day, she takes the time and explains everything. She also allows me to respond to ensure I understood and answers any additional questions I have.

December 03, 2012

THANK YOU JILL!

November 05, 2012

Jill Ericksen was great, very knowledgable, easy to talk to, she spent time with us, we did not feel rushed, explained everything

October 15, 2012

I continue to recommend freinds and family to the care of the UofU and to Dr Peters and Jill and others. That fact if there is a problem the quality of care providers is excelent if needed

October 02, 2012

We like that she is direct and professional and caring at the same time!

September 25, 2012

Jill was great!

September 18, 2012

She seemed well versed in her field but not in my underlying condition. Seems like she would have a general knowledge of medicine.

September 17, 2012

I really enjoyed my time with Jill

September 10, 2012

Jill does an excellent job.

September 10, 2012

Jill was very friendly and answered my questions. She even provided me a list of podiatric staff that could assist with an issue unrelated to my visit. I appreciate her time and attention.

August 14, 2012

Would recommend her to anyone.

August 07, 2012

This is the third time I have seen Jill. I have always been impressed with her demeanor, her knowledge and her ability to discuss the problem(s). I am very comfortable listening to what she has to say.

July 23, 2012

Jill has always been very professional and friendly. If all the PA's I hve dealt with over the past 40 years were as friendly as Jill, it would have been wonderful. Happy to say most all were not at University of Utah Health Care.

July 17, 2012

I felt completely satisfied with the explanation of my issues

July 16, 2012

I have enjoyed the skilled services and care of Jill Erickson in the past and have always appreciated having this skillful and caring person available for my medical needs. Top quality!

May 12, 2012

Jill does an excellent job of including patient in the conversation regarding their care options. Is always willing to answer my questions, takes the time with you and makes you feel informed and part of the process when it comes to reatment options

May 10, 2012

They treated me like an individual and not like a patient. They took time to explain things to you and the were concerned about my problem. I'm glad to have Dr Peters and Dr. Erickson taking care of me.

May 03, 2012

Jill Ericson rocks!

April 28, 2012

I expected a little more information as to what other treatment choices I had, but there was obviously none since I have scoleosis that is getting worse with hip replacement and knee involvement. the provider did not even think I may be helped with some physical therapy exercises.

April 28, 2012

I had some fears from my last hip replacement and Jill eased all those fears for the other hip replacement I have coming up. We discussed the problems I had (and caused myself) in the hospital last time and I feel reassured she will put notes in my chart so the same things won't happen again.

March 24, 2012

I wish she would of went into greater detail on what may happen. My experience was not a good one. she explained that it would take about 8 to 12 weeks to be the greatest help. But I was told nothing of adverse reactions. I had a very bad adverse reaction to the procedure.

January 26, 2012

in one word pleased
