I've been seeing Dr Friberg for a pretty long time, and he's done multiple surgeries on my right eye. In my honest opinion he's both very good and professional.
I have nothing but praise for this provider and his team. They took such excellent care of me I thought I was in VIP treatment.
Dr. Friberg saved my eyesight 10 years ago. That was good!
Dr. Friberg and Dr. Laham were wonderful and very caring.
There is no doctor that I would go to besides Dr. Friberg. Is the absolute model for other doctors!!!!!!
couldnt ask for better care.
Dr. Friedberg has been my care provider for a very long time and he has always had my best interst as far as my eye problem. He's a very good retina Dr.
Great doctor and staff
He seems to remember what we've talked about on previous visits and what my interests and past activities areare
The Eye Center at Mercy Hospital was very comfortable and clean. I thought all of the staff was exceptionally friendly AND helpful! I was very impressed with the Eye Cenrer. Dr. Friberg's fellow, Dr.Dos, was incredible! She was so kind and knowledgeable. She called me later the same day with my test results as she said she would. She spent as much time as I needed on the phone in order to explain all of my questions.
I was very pleased to have Dr. Friberg check the state of my eyes. He gave me good information and prognosis.
From the doorman to the Provider, my experiences have always very pleasant.
Dr. Friberg is a very good and competent physician and will be my only retinologist as long as he will treat me for retinal problems. Every time I see Dr. Friberg I receive a survey form, WHY??
Dr Friberg and the entire team provided excellent service and care. Very impressed - on time, provided complete explanations of tests, took time to discuss any questions or concerns. Also, Dr Friberg's injection in December aided in returning sight to left eye. Will continue to monitor sight and take action as necessary. So thankful to have such a wonderful doctor and conscientious team.
Too many patients to see and long waiting time this visit.1hr.15min.wait.
Doctor Friberg is excellent! his knowledge in care toward the patient are outstanding. He should pass this onto the younger generation.
I was very pleased with my visit to this provider.
Everything about the visit was positive. Dr. Friberg is the perfect example of what a doctor should be--professionally and personally.
The doctor is very willing to try and help me find solutions that could help my blindness improve.
Dr. Friberg is by far my favorite physician.He is brilliant and at the same time down to earth.
excellent care provider. I have a lot of faith in the doctors and their assistants.
I have the highest regard for Dr. Friberg and am very pleased with the retinal care he has given me over the years.
Dr Friberg is a gentlemen in addition to being a fine doctor in his field
Some of the questions don't apply to me because this was my first visit with Dr. Friberg.everyone was very friendly and efficient. I liked the fact that student doctors helped with the exam.he was recommended by a friend.
they listened carefully , made sure they understood me , and then explained the answers , in an understandable way
I always have a pleasant visit when I go to the eye center the staff is friendly and professional and I really like and feel comfortable with Dr.Friberg he's a very good doctor and a nice gentleman.
I'm very happy with this provider. When I was referred to him I was told he was the best of the best and I find I am in complete agreement.
he took care of a blood lot in my eye. I was pleased
Every single visit to Dr. Friberg is a positive experience. I never feel like a number, but as a person who is his constant concern. He cares about my visual problems, and includes my opinion when he suggests treatment. The medical profession needs more doctors like him.
Dr. Thomas Friberg is an amazing doctor and I think there is no better person than him for my eye problem. It is always a pleasure having such a good doctors.
everyone exhibited high professionalism
very knowledgeable about eye care, didn't know anything about my history and really didn't seem to care
Dr. Friberg may have his equals but there surely is no doctor better than he. His knowledge, skill and overall competence and professionalism, together with his thorough and kind communication with the patient, are more than first rate; he is a model to students and young doctors.
Dr. Friburg is absolutely tops in care and professionality. I would give him my highest possible recommendation and scoring
Dr. Friberg wonderful doctor, knowledgeable, gives good advise.
Dr. Friberg and the Eye Center at Mercy are terrific. The staff and physicians and prompt, well informed, caring, and friendly. This time they were very busy and I had to wait longer than usual. Other than that, everything was excellent, and the wait wasn't terrible.
Waited 45 minutes past appointment time to be seen. That shows a lack of respect for my time.
I adore Dr. Friberg! he is so professional, so knowledgeable and love his sense of humor! i trust him!
I've always received good care, and have recommended Dr Friberg to others.
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.
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!
I could not have hoped for better care!
Dr. Frieberg is the best physician. He is very personable, caring and an excellent Doctor.
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.
Excellent eye care by Dr. Friberg.
DR IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE & ADDRESSES MY CONCERNS.
Dr Friberg is an excellent physician. I felt very confident in his care.
Dr. Friberg, fellow and assistant who helped me were extremely thorough. All checked and double checked to be sure they did not see any problems. I have a compelling family history of eye problems and consider Dr. Friberg to be the best in Pittsburgh in his field. He is also educated in areas which compliment his practice. An example of the level of competence and performance any organization or physician should strive to emulate.
I have complete confidence and respect for Dr. Friberg
I had a great experience. Erica Durbin & Dr. Friberg were exceptional..
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Friberg as a person and especially for his surgical abilities. I also appreciate his willingness to work with veterans and I'm grateful for his presence on this earth.
Doc is top notch and so is UPMC
The provider was one of the nicest doctors I ever visited and was genuinely concerned for my well-being.
I have been a patient of Dr. Friberg for ongoing retina care and he is excellent. He is very sensitive to my concerns and the quality of his care is top notch.
I feel very confident with the whole experience. I will make my next appointment with the staff again.
experience was very good
very thorough exam and detailed explanation of what was causing the problem
I have the highest regard for Dr. Friberg and would recommend him to any of My friends or family.
excellent experience. efficient and courteous.
Very pleased with all staff. Since I travel 2hours to each way they seem to work me in as quickly as possible.
I have been extremely satisfied.
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.
everyone very courteous and helpful and on time.
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!
I feel he'll always be there when I need him.
He is certainly an expert in his field; that's why I became a patient of his. He explains things clearly. I am very impressed with and appreciate that he consults me about the treatment he intends to do.
very good n thorough
I have always had positive experiences at my visits. I have referred more than one person to you and will continue to do so.
Very thorough discussion and clarification of the health issue.
Extremely capable. Consulted with other Ophthalmologists who examined me, both in residence and referring surgeon in practice acting as a team. Took into account my personal history and experience with medical condition and my attitude toward proceeding with operation.
He is time efficient.
This was my first visit with Dr Friberg and I was very impressed with the quick, efficient care I received. I have a follow up visit scheduled in 6 weeks and I have complete confidence in his ability to handle my situation.
This was my first experience with the "provider", as you call him. He was very good and appears very knowledgeable. I felt comfortable during the visit. He provided a thorough eye exam and took the time to explain what is occurring and addressing my concerns.
I was examined by both Dr. Friberg and a resident, and was very pleased with both of them. They were friendly, approachable, careful, competent and explained my situation very thoroughly.
this was my first visit and everything I exoerienced was professional. thank you.
