Waited 45 minutes past appointment time to be seen. That shows a lack of respect for my time.

July 12, 2016

I've always received good care, and have recommended Dr Friberg to others.

July 11, 2016

Always at tentative to my need, 5 star.

To Whom It May Concern, Dr. Friberg has been my doctor for a number of years now. I am typing this note to you bc of him. If it had not been for Dr. Friberg I would not be able to type this note nor see my husband, my children, my grandkids. I would be able to feel my grandkids when they run up to me and hug me tightly, I could hear their laughter, I could smell them after their nightly bath, but I could not be able to see them play ball or march in the band or participate in gymnastics or ride their tricycle through the house or feed the ducks at the local pond or see their emotional pain in their eyes when they need a big hug from me and a word to tell them I'm there for them. There are 3 heroes in my life. God, my husband who researched and found Dr. Friberg and Dr. Friberg who saved my eyesight. My gratitude for these 3 men is unmeasurable. If I had lost my eyesight my life would have gone on and I would see in other ways, but thanks to God , my husband, and Dr. Friberg I don't have to worry about that.

I've always had very good experiences with Dr. Friberg.

April 26, 2016

I expected to have a longer than usual wait, because the staff told me at check-in that Dr. Friberg was in surgery and probably would be late. To my pleasant surprise, he was able to see me without any significant delay, and even though he had to return to surgery, he spent time with me to discuss my concerns and determine that my eyesight continues to be stable. Kudos!

April 25, 2016

I could not have hoped for better care!

April 19, 2016

Dr. Frieberg is the best physician. He is very personable, caring and an excellent Doctor.

April 05, 2016

I have the highest respect for Dr. Friberg, and I trust his medical judgement. It is also much appreciated that he is a caring physician.
