Dr. Erickson has been driven to innovate practices that create a stronger presence of a patient’s voice in the delivery of their care. He believes that wellness and ultimate wholeness occurs when the body, mind, and spirit are in harmony with one another, and has the ambition"to care for the whole person including body, mind, and spirit." This approach has greatly improved the quality of care that is provided to patient. Dr. Erickson in particular feels very fortunate to have an Inspired team that continually demonstrates a passion for caring and serving their patients.
Dr. Erickson’s career path first directed him into teaching, which he continues to do today by mentoring Medical Students, Residents, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners. Dr. Erickson obtained his medical degree at Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, now Midwestern University, in 1987. He then attended the University of Buffalo where he was enrolled in the State University of New York’s Family Medicine Residency Program.
Upon graduation, Dr. Erickson entered private practice with his wife, Dr. Jennifer Erickson, and was one of the founders of Buffalo Family Practice and Pro Medicus Health Group. Following that endeavor, the husband and wife doctor duo entered into their own private practice. In 2001, they opened the doors to Inspired Health Group family practice in Orchard Park with the mission to inspire patients to Body, Mind and Spirit prosperity. Since 2001, Inspired Health Group has cultivated a dedicated and professional team of board certified physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and dietitian nutritionists.
The practice has truly become a real family practice. Besides having his wife, Jennifer Erickson, DO, in the group, Dr. Erickson's daughter, Betsy Mikac, FNP-C, is a Family Nurse Practitioner on the team, and his son, David Erickson, will be joining the organization in 2022 as a Family Physician. In addition, Dr. Erickson’s sister, Shari Kay Shearing, BSN, RN, is the Director of Nursing.
Inspired Health Group has been a patient centered medical home since 2011, and is currently recognized at the highest level by NCQA as a Level 3. Catholic Medical Partners, a group of over 1,000 physicians, this past year recognized Dr. Erickson and Inspired Health Group with its first ever Outstanding Achievement Award in delivering quality care and innovation.
