Dr. Friedberg is professional and personable with the ability to diagnose a patient as well as quickly determine what kind of patient you are likely to be. He is thurough and methodical in his assessment of the patient needs, in my case - cataracts. He effectively explained the situation, what the procedure options were, the risks, and what the outcome was likely to be. His surgical skills are outstanding and tne results really improved the quality of my life!

Dr. Friedberg is the very best and all I could have hoped for in an Ophthalmologist. I was provided with exemplary care by Dr. Friedberg and his staff during the process of my cataract surgery. Due to my prior RK surgery in 1993, Dr. Friedberg explained all the risks involved during cataract surgery concerning my particular situation. With his credentials and experience, I had no doubt I was in good hands and the results of my surgery were excellent.

From beginning to end I had a fantastic experience. Dr. Friedberg and his staff were friendly, informative, and professional. Also, and most importantly my eyesight has improved immensely. I no longer need glasses since my cataract surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Friedberg and Coastal Eye Institute.
Thank you so much for taking the time to let others know about the care provided by Dr. Friedberg and the service you received by the staff of Coastal Eye Institute!

Completely professional. I had fantastic results with my eyesight after cataract surgery. My wife had lenses replaced by Dr. Friedberg that should not have been put in (by another physician). She went from extremely bad eyesight to excellent eyesight. The icing on the cake is that Dr. Friedberg's bedside manner is as wonderful as his surgical abilities. A truly great combination.
We truly appreciate you, Paul, for taking the time to share the positive results experienced by you and your wife. Thank you also for noting Dr. Friedberg's bedside manner and surgical abilities. Your feedback will undoubtedly help others when choosing an Ophthalmologist.

Dr. Friedberg helped me select the most appropriate intraocular lens for each eye (one had astigmatism, one did not) and was meticulous about preparation for my cataract surgery. Both surgeries went smoothly, with excellent results. For the first time in 50+ years, I can see with out glasses. My distance vision is especially crisp.
