Dr Friberg is such a good doctor and fine man that I would trust him with anything he suggests concerning my eyes.

perfect

All of Dr. Friberg's team is supportive and helpful.

I really like Dr. Friberg and think he is very sharp, caring and competent. I believe my care is in good hands with him. One comment I have is that there is a bit of disjointedness in the visit. A tech does some measurements (eyeball pressure for example) and doesn't give you any information about it unless asked, and even then it's pretty minimal. Then another Dr., probably a resident, does an examination and again, no feedback. Finally, Dr. Friberg comes in and does an examination and gives his opinion, but the feeling I get is that much of what transpired before doesn't get "added in" to what he reports. So it's a lot of input and measurement and a somewhat non-detailed reporting of it. This might have been magnified because the office was packed and he was running late (not a big issue to me) but still, it's a bit of a disorganized flow of information.

Dr Friberg is my retinal specialist, he is always very thorough and professional, he takes his time and he listens to what I have to say and always answers my questions. I highly recommend Dr Friberg!

April 08, 2019

I have visited Dr. Friberg annually for a check up since 2003 when he performed surgery on my eye to repair a detached retina. I have always been very happy with Dr. Friberg's care and the professionalism of the staff at the UPMC Mercy Eye Center.
