What People Say About Dr. Helga Pizio, MD

She is so kind and caring throughout the process of my cataract surgery. I opted for the additional amount to correct all visual problems. When I was still not completely able to see she did a revision at no cost to me. She had a colleague examine my eyes as well. In the end I have great distance, mid-range and reading vision. I’m very pleased with my choice.

Dr. Helga Pizio is Absolutely The BEST. I have taken both of my parents to all kind of doctors but the excellent service, friendliness, professionalism and courtesy provided by Dr. Pizio's staff in Summerlin's office is unmatched here in Las Vegas. It is because her own personality and knowledge supersedes all and sets an example for everyone. My parents had bad experience with other eye doctors that finally was corrected by Dr. Pizio. She performed surgery on their eyes with extra care and they

I went to Dr. Pizio because she took such great care of my parents and they recommended her highly. The office I went to, located behind University Medical Center, is beautifully decorated and very calming. Every person I spoke with in the office was very professional, patient and friendly. Dr. Pizio is a bright ray of sunshine with a great smile. I immediately felt comfortable with her. She took the time to listen and explain things to me. I look forward to continuing my care with Dr. Pizio.

Dr. Pizio is a terrific ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. She is truly caring and wants only to provide the best care possible for each patient. I had cataract surgery on my first eye two weeks ago and my second eye was 6 days ago and I am already 20/20 or better and I can read, even fine print, without glasses for the first time in 26 years. And, as my eyes continue to settle down after the surgery, my vision is expected to improve over the next couple months. I am thrilled.

I had cataract surgery done by Dr. Pizio in May 2017 and the experience was absolutely simply EXCELLENT! From Dr. Pizio to the staff at the surgery center and all of her staff at the different locations, I always felt in good hands with knowledgeable professionals. They showed outstanding performance, personal care and amazing dedication. In a few words, if I had another set of eyes and I needed surgery, I would go through the experience again without any hesitation. I highly recommend New Eyes!

Dr. Pizio recently performed cataract surgery in both of my eyes. My results was nothing short of spectacular. Dr. Pizio inserted the Symphony Intraocular Lenses and one week post op I am seeing 20/20 without glasses or contacts. I am so pleased due to the fact that I required glasses or contacts for the past 68 years. I can't say enough about Dr. Pizio's professionalism and skill as a surgeon. I found her staff (at the Summerlin office) to be very friendly and personable.

I had a great experience with Dr. Pizio getting cataract surgery on one eye. I opted for the Symphony lens, and I ended up with 20/20 distant vision...and I shed my reading glasses as a result of the procedure. Suffice to say,I am one happy camper! Dr. Pizio was accessible and articulate,and the support staff at both News Eyes and Alta/Rose Surgery Center were exemplary. A+ on all counts...

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Pizio for 15 years and wouldn't think of going to anyone else. She is the best at what she does. She changed our eye world. Not only is she an excellent surgeon and all-around eye doctor, she is one of the nicest, kindest individual we know. Very recently I was going through a week of difficulties and needed to see them, they were there for me. I knew then that we hadn't gone wrong 15 years years ago. We love her. Staff is excellent!
