in Asbury Park, NJ |
Never had surgery or been hospitalized. Had emergency eye surgery very near the point of no return from losing the eye. To sum it up, Dr Friedberg after 2 procedures restored my vision to better than my other eye. Passionate about his trade & just an all around good man.
in Freehold, NJ |
Dr Friedberg is excellent, the best. I am extremely nears sighted and have had retinal issues in both eyes: detached retina left eye, giant tears right eye - he has repaired them all.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Friedberg and staff at the center. Great results with a cataract extraction, everything was explained to me along the way. I felt very comfortable and the results are perfect.

My mother saw Dr.Michael Friedberg for multiple retinal tears in one of her eyes. From the moment we walked in, we were very pleased by the sheer kindness, efficiency, patience and friendliness of everyone from the front desk (Cory and Sue!) to the nurses and the doctor. Dr. Friedberg diagnosed and treated my mom with accuracy, precision and professionalism. Above all, his nobility and humility are truly heartwarming and a rarity these days. Highly recommend him!
Dr. Friedberg saved the vision in my eye and I will be forever thankful. He always explains the problem and how he can correct it. I would highly recommend him.

Point Pleasant Beach, NJ |
Eye came out completely bloodshot, had an eyeball irritation that lasted 3 weeks. Also had a rare condition called negative dysphotopsia, which he refused to acknowledge. I went to another doctor for the other eye 2 years later---no bloodshot eye, no irritation, and complete discussion about negative dysphotopsia. Also found out that the "special" $1000 lens from Friedberg is considered to be fairly "useless". New doctor suggested I should ask for a refund!

Dr. Friedberg inspires trust & confidence. He is skillful, efficiently informative and clear. He has been very reliable in getting back to me to answer questions I've had between appointments.

Out of one thousand actors only five will be great. Out of one thousand doctors only five will be great, however they all will all be paid as if they're great. You have to select your Doctors very carefully. Dr Friedberg is one of the greats. If you or your family has eye problems, he is the one to go to. Other Doctors referred me to him, and the results were life changing.
in Matawan, NJ |
Dr. Friedberg and his staff were wonderful to me. My retinal detachment was diagnosed and treated quickly and competently. I walked in having been sent there by my ophthalmologist who made a phone call to Dr. Friedberg and they fit me into the schedule without skipping a beat. I really appreciate the caring staff and Dr.Friedberg for treating me so well. Thank you.
in Red Bank, NJ |
Dr Friedberg gave me my sight back, Cataracts are terrible to deal with. Dr Friedberg was professional, to the point, and did such a great job that I was back to my regular life in just a few days. I was treated by him and the entire staff with the best care ever. I will see him again when I need the other eye done.

What a total jerk- Just accompanied my father, a retired physician, to an appointment-and I was aghast beginning to end. Steer clear of this doc.
Red Bank, NJ |
My surgery was quick and successful.
in Parlin, NJ |
Had it not been for Dr. Friedberg, I would have lost my sight entirely in one eye!. He explained my condition in clear, and simple terms. He truly cares for his patients. Dr. Friedberg is truly talented and a rare gem!! His staff is wonderful friendly and you never wait more than 5-10 minutes. .
in Howell, NJ |
He did a great job with my cataract surgery.
in Middletown, NJ |
Dedicated physician who explains procedures in detail and answers all questions. He has done cataract surgery on both my eyes with excellent results.
in Hazlet, NJ |
I have undergone two procedures with Dr. Friedberg and both have gone extremely well. His staff is excellent. All my questions were answered and they are friendly and helpful. Dr. Friedberg operated on my macula and one year later fixed a cataract and implanted a lens on my eye. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an eye surgeon.

Does an excellent job. He did the surgery for my detached retina and gave me a new cataract. Both have been great.
