As a physician and specialist, Dr. Thomas Friberg represents the epitome of competence, integrity, skill, kindness and thoughtfulness. He is a first-rate diagnostician and surgeon. I am certain that he not only is informed about the latest research and analysis but contributes to it. His patients and students are most fortunate.

Dr. Thomas Friberg has taken wonderful care of my eyes! He lasered my Detached Retina twenty-five years ago. In 2014, he cleared my Posterior Capsule Occlusion. With his advice on supplements and with GOD's guidance, he kept my Dry Macular Degeneration stable! Dr. Friberg is a Bright Star in ophthalmology!
