I called about an urgent eye condition I was having and was given an appointment for later that same day. Got to the office with a full waiting room. Was called back within several minutes. The nurse was so friendly caring and nice! Waiting just a few more minutes for the doctor who was very kind and thorough. I was very impressed with how fast I got in. 3 people looked at my eyes and I feel very relieved that it isn't too serious a situation. I would definitely refer this office. Very impressive with everyone!!

I was consistently impressed with the excellent quality of care that I received, both from Dr. Friberg and from the nurse (?) who did the preliminary work with me (vision test, administering eye drops, etc. I particularly appreciated that the latter person took the time and consideration of explaining the procedures to me.

Everything was great, from the reception to the exit. Staff and physicians were friendly, courteous, respectful, and helpful.
