Dr. Ericsken saw me on a Sunday afternoon in an emergency appointment. It was was pricey but it was on a Sunday. Her diagnosis was spot on. I was able to get an emergency appointment with an ophthalmologist on UNMC soon after. Now, (after some mistakes from an UNMC-ophthalmologist ) I'm being treated for uveitis. Dr. Ericsken, was right on point since the beginning. If you have any eye problems. You can trust her. She is intelligent and astute. Paul and her were wonderful. ❤️🙏 Thank you Dr. Ericsken and Mr. Paul
