Dr. Asberg Jr is absolutely the best retinal specialist. I was afraid of my macular degeneration and having to get shots in my left eye. He put me at ease and I am no longer fearful.

I feel SO fortunate to have Dr. Aaberg as my retinal specialist. My spontaneous retinal detachment turned out to be a very challenging situation, and Dr. Aaberg has been awesome to work with! He is professional yet compassionate, and obviously knows his specialty inside and out. I would recommend him to everyone, especially to those I care about!!! Thank you for my eye back, Dr. Aaberg!!

I was referred to Dr. Aaberg in 2012 for problems in the back of both of my eyes. He is an excellent doctor who really cares about his patients, something I find pretty rare in this day and age!

Dr Aaberg diagnosed my ocular melanoma. When I was referred to him they got me in quickly. Dr Aaberg spent until after 8pm in his office talking with my family and me. He was courteous, compassionate and was willing to spend as much time as we needed to get our questions answered. He talked about treatment options explaining in detail the reason he recommended plaque radiation therapy.
