Dr. Justo did my cataract lens replacement. I could have not asked for a better outcome. My goal was no more glasses or contact lenses, no glare and no halos And that is what was achieved. His assistant Sherrie is top notch in supporting the pre-surgery requirement. I have been recommending Dr Justo to everyone I work with.

Dr. Justo is an incredible surgeon. He has been in the business for decades and it shows! He did my eyelid surgery and I can not believe what a difference it has made in my life! I didn't realize what I was missing as life passed by as my eyelids acted as curtains covering my eyes. I look 20 years younger. And my insurance covered the surgery too. I highly recommend the best surgeon in the business!

My skin has never looked better thanks to Dr. Justo. Eyelid surgery helped me to dramatically improve my vision and look much younger. The Obagi NuDerm Skincare System has helped me stave off the years of time by giving me a more youthful appearance. People often ask how I maintain such a nice complexion. They are surprised when they learn my real age, which certainly quite flattering. I would absolutely recommend!

I see Dr. Justo and Dr. Shifrin for eye exams, and I appreciate all of the time and attention they both provide during appointments. Both doctors make sure every question is answered and thoroughly explain any concerns that arise. I recently began seeing Nurse, Roxanne, who is helping me to eliminate a problem area that has frustrated me for years. She uses fillers to help me look better and feel more confident, while ensuring my results are natural looking. I highly recommend!

I just love Dr. Justo and his team, especially Roxanne Dorty, his Nursing Director who has been keeping me young! It is the absolute best practice to go to, because Dr. Justo is the best at ensuring my vision stays its best, and he is always good at making me laugh and feel comfortable! Roxanne is a true artist when it comes to giving me natural results using Botox or Dysport to eliminate those pesky lines that make me feel older. She makes them disappear and it is an incredible transformatio

From start to finish Dr Justo and his staff were very friendly and informative about my eyelid procedure for me. The procedure was so simple . I love the results. It’s so nice to be able to put make up on without having to hold the excess skin out of the way. Thank you Dr Justo and staff for a job well done!

Getting ready to go see Dr. Justo again! This time for Botox! I love this company! Dr. Justo takes the time to listen to you. He explains everything and answers all your questions before doing any treatments! His staff are amazing too! I've been going there for 14 years and some of the staff have been there all these years! I've had permanent makeup by Stephanie and an Obagi Blue Peel by Roxanne as well! You can even schedule your annual eye exam at either location... When you call the office yo

I want to share my thoughts about this Gold Mine I have found right here in Sun City West called the Arizona Eye Institute. I have come to them for so many procedures and products, and they are always the most amazing at achieving my results. They seem like friends to me at this point. Dr. Justo has performed eyelid surgery on me, and the results are incredible. Roxanne helps guide me with my skin care routine and my Botox/filler products to help me stay young. They have it all

I am once again starting the year right with our family's annual eye exams. Dr Justo's staff is wonderful here at AZ Eye Institute . If you want the best. . go to the best. Dr Justo's staff is top notch! I also have now received Botox w Nurse Roxanne, she knew I was nervous and didn't want to appear 'stiff'. She kept my appearance natural yet super refreshed. I fully trust the care & quality at the AZ Eye Institute.  I absolutely love the results from my Obagi skin care as well.

I want to thank Dr. Emilio Justo and his incredible staff for helping both myself and my husband qualify for insurance to cover our eyelid surgeries. We always thought that it was just cosmetic and we were getting old and had to live with the loose skin. But Dr. Justo explained that a big part of the vision loss we both were experiencing, was due to our baggy eyelids. We both look much younger, but we look natural - many people can't tell at first what we had done!

I met Dr Justo and his wonderful staff five years ago and I have never been disappointed. Dr Justo and his staff are always upbeat and willing to go the extra mile for me.   I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my eyes since I had my eyelid surgery.  Before the surgery everyone would always ask me if I was tired because my eyes were so droopy...not anymore!!   All I can say is Thank you Dr Justo for your many years of professionalism, expertise and of course your experience!

I have been a patient of Dr. Justo's for over a decade now and after seeing results and having a first hand experience with the results my friends have experienced with Dr. Justo, I could not recommend any other Physician should you want to have cataract surgery or any cosmetic procedures he offers. Dr. Justo has the most up to date cataract surgical equipment and takes the time to get the patient first rate results. All the technicians and front office staff are very friendly and helpful. One o

I am extremely pleased with the results of my eyelid surgery by Dr. Justo. The staff was very friendly and informative. It is amazing to be able to put my mascara on without having to hold my lids up and out of the way. Thank you Dr. Justo and staff! Professionalism is excellent. I also Love the results of my permanent eyeliner and eyebrows from Stephanie. She is an artist with her work. It looks so natural. She made me feel at ease and the process very simple. Thank you Arizona Eye Institute!

Dr. Justo and his team are great! He did an incredible job on my eyelid surgery, so I referred my mother. She looks like my sister now! I am always greeted by great, friendly and welcoming staff. Dr. Justo's results are so natural, and he and his staff will help you get your surgery covered by insurance, if they can. If you are thinking about having eyelid surgery, this is the place to come!

I never thought I'd see a doctor who takes the time to answer all of my questions. They usually are right or the door. While another provider was trying to talk me into cataract surgery, Dr. Justo told me it was too soon. He is a doctor who won't oversell or do anything unnecessary. He did educate me that my eyelids could get done, using insurance while I had no idea was possible. So now my real vision issue, my baggy eyelids, are gone and I love how I look. I'd recommend. Dr. Justo!!
