She is a doctor who deeply cares about getting a prescription that works for you in your real life. She doesn't just read the numbers but truly makes sure you are comfortable with how your prescription works with your lifestyle. I use a computer a lot so it is important for my computer vision to be 100%. She let me know my options and let me pick what works best with my lifestyle. Dr. Friberg is awesome! She is the best eye doctor I have had over the years. I highly recommend her and her staff.

I had an excellent visit with Zuzana Friberg, OD. and her staff. They explained everything along the way and made sure I understood the tests they doing and my options. Thank you very much!

Zuzana is friendly, knowledgeable, and her staff is as well. They've helped me deal with the symptoms of my seasonal allergies, trying out new contacts, and understanding the price breakdown for everything.

Dr. Friberg was amazing. From the confirmation call, to the actual office experience, it was perfect. Allison was very helpful up front, in discussing frames and made great recommendations. I ended up not needing a prescription but the service and communication continued to impress. I'll definitely be back and sending my friends family that need an OD in the Portland area.

New to the neighborhood, couldn't be happier with the level of care and professionalism of everyone in Dr Friberg's practice. A plus that my previous OD is good friends with Dr Friberg!

Dr. Friberg is very thorough an provides detailed information to help me make the best decisions for my eye care.

Really professional, friendly, helpful. Would not go anywhere else!

Dr Friberg is the most careful, thorough, skilled and brilliant eye care professional I have ever seen. I keep coming back year after year for this very reason. I'm a state board certified optician, and I've worked alongside many doctors and professionals in the industry, and she is the best. The facility is great, the staff is highly professional and knowledgeable, and the eyewear selection is great and continually getting better... Highly recommended!!!
Zuzana was amazing. She explained everything clearly and made sure I understood what my prescription meant and what it would do. She walked me through all of my options and was incredibly friendly. This will definitely be my first choice for eye care.
June 14, 2016, www.zocdoc.com
So kind and understanding! Work with you to get what you need. Always on time. Doesn't try to upsell you on things you don't need.

This was one of the best appointments I've had in a long time! I was very impressed by everyone I interacted with at the office. I will absolutely be seeing Zuzana for any of my future eye appointments!

I've been a customer of Uptown EyeCare & Optical since 2013. I admit, I'm usually nervous going to healthcare appointments, but Dr Friberg and her amazing staff have always made me feel relaxed and welcome. I'm always kept well informed as to any issues with my eyes and any treatments or preventative measures I could be taking. Dr Friberg is always happy to answer any questions I have and her staff go that extra mile to make sure I'm well looked after.

I was new to town and stumbled upon Uptown Eyecare after waking up with a severe contact lens issue; Doctor Friberg fit me in her busy Saturday schedule within 1 hour of my photo call. She is very knowledgable and takes the time to educate her patients on the "how and why?" aspect of the diagnosis. I would recommend Uptown Eyecare to anyone looking for a quality, patient-oriented optometrist.
January 30, 2016, www.yelp.com
Dr. Friberg was great about answering my questions and was patient with me during the eye exam. The optician, Allison, fixed up my current pair of glasses and was very helpful in picking out new ones. After I left the store, she called me to let me know about a coupon to save on my new frames. That's extraordinary customer service!
January 30, 2016, www.yelp.com
Dr. Friberg is amazing! She makes you feel so comfortable. The only recommendation I have is to have the ladies at the front desk make you feel more like a person rather than only discuss insurance and payment policies. The seemed to be fixated on that the entire time I was there.
December 2015, www.zocdoc.com
Dr Friberg is one of the friendliest doctors I have seen. She explains things very clearly to help you understand what she's seeing, and genuinely cares for you as a patient. The entire staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and respond to your needs, whether it be related to vision problems or simply finding new frames.
November 28, 2015, www.zocdoc.com (repeat customer)
My appointment was actually fun!! Dr. Friberg was also accompanied by very professional staff. I was treated as if I were her most important patient and had no unanswered questions after leaving the office.
November 10, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
Even before my appt, they contacted me with a list of things to do to make the appt go more efficiently. When I walked in, I was addressed right away and was sitting down with the Dr by my appt time. Dr. Friberg was very thorough and informative as she explained each test and talked with me about my options. Everyone was helpful, detailed, and quick! Great experience.
September 9, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
This appointment, like the others I've had with Dr. Friberg, was friendly, professional, and productive. Everyone in the office should be commended!
August 19, 2015, www.zocdoc.com (repeat customer)
Fantastic staff and Dr! Hadn't had my eyes checked in a looooong time because it's just too scary to me, but the staff and Dr really put me at ease from the moment I walked in. Great selection of frames and excellent customer service. I'm very happy with my new glasses!!!
August 5, 2015, www.yelp.com
[Dr. Friberg] was out of town so I saw the other doctor [Dr. Mercer], and it was a great appointment. Everyone in this office is fantastic. Everything was explained well.
July 14, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
Absolutely the best and most complete eye visit done in years. After few months of vision problems and after having seeing other doctors with no improvement in my poor vision, I went to Dr. Friberg and she found out what my problem was and fixed it with the right therapy. Also, did I mention how wonderful is their customer service?
June 11, 2015, www.yelp.com
I met with Dr. Mercer instead and she and the staff were terrific!
June 6, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
I first came here in 1992 and have felt like the care I received is amazing. This time I saw Dr. Mercer and she is incredible. Knowledgable, personable... just a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Plus, the glasses they've made me have always been perfect. They stand behind their work every time. I can't say it enough, how thankful I am for Uptown EyeCare.

Zuzana spent a lot of time with me and took the initiative to fully explain things to me. I really appreciated her thoroughness, warmth and professionalism. She is extremely knowledgeable and explained each step as it was happening, and took time to give me additional information. For someone with eyes as bad as mine (and family history of eye disease), this was a great comfort.
May 6, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
I always have a great experience here. The staff are delightful. And there's always a bowl of candy. :)
March 5, 2015,www.yelp.com
Dr. Friberg has a nice personality, but more importantly seems to have great knowledge about eye care and medicine. Highly recommended!
January 28, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
I love her! She (Dr. Friberg) knows what she is doing and has an amazing knowledge about her area of practice.
January 23, 2015, www.zocdoc.com
We LOVE Uptown Eyecare!!!!!!!! The staff is fabulous; super friendly and personable. And, they have great frames that stay current to trends. This place has remained constant in quality and efficiency over the four years we've been to them and highly recommend them.
January 5, 2015, www.yelp.com
Dr. Friberg is wonderful. She's honest and dives right in. The staff is wonderful and takes time to get to know you. Always an easy visit!
Dr. Friberg and her staff were extremely friendly. Dr. Friberg did an excellent job in answering my questions and explaining what she was looking at during the exam, and I came away with a better understanding of my eye health.
November 8, 2014, www.zocdoc.com
It was great. Felt well cared for, all steps were explained, very professional and thorough. Glasses suggestions and fitting was just the right amount of service, helpful not sales like. And they even helped me look up the bus stop number as I left.

Two years ago I had an outstanding experience purchasing a pair of Kilsgaard frames/bifocals - Tina exceeded my expectations of customer service and the other staff people were totally engaged with customers/clients. Looking forward to purchasing from them again within the next couple of months. Great selection of frames, too.

Very helpful staff, good exam. Not pushy at all, but did a nice job educating me about what was going on with my eyes.
June 2014, www.zocdoc.com
Extremely personable and knowledgeable staff. So glad I found them on ZocDoc!
I was seen by a different doc in her practice. The doc (Dr. Jill Scheiffele) was extremely personable, professional, and knowledgeable.

Incredibly knowledgeable. I've never been better informed on my eyes, contact fitting, prescription, cleaning products. Great and helpful staff, lovely office. Highly recommended.

Great Doctor and great staff! They really are wonderful team.
October 16, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
Just what I needed. Friendly, knowledgeable, honest and reassuring. A professional.
October 2013, www.zocdoc.com
Terrific experience. After going all over town to find glasses that I liked, I found multiple pairs here. Turns out my prescription was expired so they got me right in and I found the doctor to be very knowledgable and friendly. If you have a small face, definitely check out Uptown -- they carry multiple brands that really work for those of us that have small heads. It's so great to have glasses that actually fit!

Dr. Friberg and Candy, as well as the receptionist, were friendly, understanding, and informative.

Did a great job...very pleasant and easy to talk to.
June 19, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
I absolutely loved working with Cody, Tina, and Dr. Friberg. They were all courteous, helpful, and fun! Tina helped pick out the best pair of glasses, Cody was so kind when my eyes were dilated and I couldn't see. Dr. Friberg was amazing during the exam, very complete and gave me tips that I didn't know about wearing contacts. I have been to a few places over the years and this experience was the best I have had.
June 13, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
She was informative, caring and very easy to converse with. Thank you Dr. Friberg!!!!
June 7, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
I think this Doctor (Dr. Friberg) is the best I have ever seen! I moved here a year ago and when my contacts ran out recently I had to find an optometrist here in PDX. I did an internet search because no one could refer me to a good eye doctor... and I sure am glad the search led me to Uptown EyeCare! The doctor and staff were all so helpful and very kind!! She was genuinely concerned with helping out my vision problems and fitting me with the most comfortable prescription. In all the years that I have been wearing glasses/contacts I have never had such great service! I definitely recommend Dr. Friberg!
May 15, 2013, www.yelp.com
She (Dr. Friberg) is fantastic. She had a cancellation and I was able to get in within 2 hours!
May 7, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
She (Dr. Friberg) was outstanding. Knowledgeable, personable, accommodating to my needs. I highly recommend her!
May 2, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
Great experience! Dr. Friberg is warm, courteous, efficient and professional. The staff is very friendly, too.
March 26, 2013, www.zocdoc.com
It was a great experience. I will definitely go back. Dr. Friberg and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I had a lot of fun picking out my new glasses.
Dr. Friberg is very personable and has lots of energy. Her exam was very thorough and she explained things very well. After my visit I emailed with some questions about insurance coverage, etc., and Dr. Friberg personally emailed me back within a couple of hours with a very detailed explanation, answering my questions. Very impressive and unexpected.
She (Dr. Friberg) was amazing! She seems very smart and knowledgeable in her field and the whole office staff is very efficient and kind.
I just got my contacts and I'm impressed with Dr Friberg. I moved from CA and didn't know where to go. I have a very difficult astigmatism to deal with and I have had a few optometrist over the years, but she was probably the most efficient and what I like about her is she let me wear my new contacts to see how they felt, than adjusting my left eye contact (lens). Now I have better than 20/20 vision. The staff are also very friendly and professional. Now I have someone I trust my eyes to! Thanks!
Dr. Zuzana Friberg was smart, thorough, and friendly. I saw her because I got an eye infection while traveling in Portland. She really went the extra mile, spending extra time to research which of several drugs would work well and cost less. I've been going to optometrists for 25 years and she was the best so far.
My situation is a bit unusual, and (Dr.Friberg) did a great job working it out. Many thanks!
(Dr. Friberg) is a friendly person and very professional. My visit there was very pleasant!
Extremely helpful staff, very pleasant Doctor and I'd fully recommend this practice to everyone.
The entire practice was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable, and it was a great time! Thanks to you all!
I have been coming here for 20 years. Great service and super friendly staff - highly recommended!
Fantastic Doc, It clearly shows how much of a difference between good care and mediocre care can be. Zuzana clearly cared about my visit and unique needs. Everything about the visit was quick, painless with no wait. And the price for my exam was very reasonable.
Dr. Friberg is very friendly, and makes the entire experience pleasant and informative. I left feeling like my eyes were in good hands!
The nice folks at Uptown to the rescue! They made a bad prescription from another clinic into a perfect one. Friendly caring, understanding & compassionate experts truly concerned about my vision. They do right.
I'm updating my review of 2010 to reflect another two years of great service by this office. I find them consistently performing at high levels of customer service regarding the patient's health and pocketbook. If I seem enthused, that's only because I've had horrible experiences with other optometry offices and want to give these guys credit. It's nice to be remembered by name, and not treated as a number/revenue source.
Doctor Friberg demonstrates clear concern for her patient's well-being. She takes the time to explain everything she's doing, why, and what the results suggest. She is clearly interested in making sure the patient is well-informed of the state of their eyes and the options available. In addition, unlike other Optometrists I've visited she is clearly interested in developing a long-term relationship with her patients.
Katie and Torrey work the front office, and have been immensely helpful with everything from scheduling, billing, fitting, and repairs. I had a warranty issue in 2011 and my lenses were replaced quickly and without hassle. Also, during my last visit i was referred to an outside clinic that has specialized equipment, and they made sure the visit was as smooth and seamless as possible.Check these guys out, your eyeballs will leave smiling.
My wife & have gone here for years. Dr. Friberg is amazing. Extremely competent, comprehensive care. Super friendly office staff.
After choosing Uptown Eyecare & Optical based on the positive Yelp reviews, I have to agree that this place is great. The staff are upbeat and professional, the office is clean and pleasant, and I had a very positive eye exam experience with Dr. Chewerda. The staff answered my insurance questions, made checking in and out a breeze, and helped me to select a new pair of glasses from their extensive range of options. Overall, I really appreciated the friendly and efficient service, and I will definitely be returning here again.
Been seeing (thanks to her! haha) Dr. Friberg for two years now. She has a great personality and a very patient-centered approach. I recommend her!
I love this place! The staff is so friendly and helpful. They took care of all my insurance before I came in. The doctor and the office staff were professional and nice.
I had a regular exam and then picked out my first pair of glasses. They have a huge selection and are able to order more. I got my classes sooner than they predicted: less than a week. I have also gone back in to have them re-flitted because i'm obsessive. they have been great
