The staff is very professional and attentive to their patients. Dr. Justo is the best and most personable you will ever have the pleasure to meet as is the entire staff.

Robert Chiarini SR

Dr. Justo thoroughly explained the condition for which I visited him. Additionally, he took the extra time to clarify another condition that I had and explained matters in a way that was easy to understand. He was not quick to have me scheduled for a procedure which was previously indicated by two other ophthalmologists. Based on the better understanding that I received from Dr. Justo, I cancelled the surgery that was recommended by other specialists. He clearly had my interests at heart.

Recently, I witnessed a front-desk person very patiently and lovingly explain to someone over the phone just when and how to take their medication. She must have repeated the same information 10 times. This is customer service at its best!

Laureen Badar

This was my first time visiting AZ Eye Institute. It was a wonderful experience from the time I walked in the door until I my appointment was over.

I almost cancelled because it took me 1 1/2 hours to get there due to the distance and getting horribly lost but because Sarah at the front desk was so patient, caring and nice I made it.

Nancy J.

I am very satisfied and happy with the results of my upper eyelid surgery. I have received many compliments and questions concerning the procedure. The staff was very professional and friendly. Dr. Justo explained the procedure in great detail and he made me feel very comfortable about the surgery. The surgery went well without any pain. I never realized how dramatic (in a positive way) the change would be. I cannot even see any scars. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Justo and his staff.

A. Gormley

I love love LOVE the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center! Roxanne is wonderful and knows exactly what she is doing. I feel safe and confident in her all the time. I could see results after the very first visit for both my laser hair and laser tattoo removal sessions. Most importantly, Roxanne is familiar with different skin types and colors, and knows how to prevent scarring and bleaching/skin discoloration. I can't say enough good things about her and about the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center.

Michael Cassano

From the moment I came into the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center from my initial visit and surgery, through to the follow up appointment, it was a great experience. The staff was great. Michelle walked me through the entire experience and she was excellent.

Peggy Tipton

My eyelid surgery at the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center was everything I had hoped it would be. I am very happy with the results and have recommended the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center to friends. I am very satisfied!

Frank Schaefer

Do you believe in miracles? I don't, or should I say, I didn't. I've worn glasses/contacts since I was around 7 years old. I remember missing out on certain activities like football, scuba diving, etc. because in those days there was no protection for someone that had to wear glasses to see. This of course improved but did not go away as I got older. Then in "old age", I met Dr. Emilio Justo. There are rocket scientists, geniuses, and others that seem able to do the impossible. But who would have thought that after 70 years I would meet a person that could perform a procedure {cataract surgery} on my eyes that would give me perfect vision without glasses or contacts! I still have "problems" from time to time. I find that when I have an itch on my nose, I subconsciously reach "under my glasses" to scratch my nose. Or when washing my face, before splashing water on my face, I reach to take off my glasses, and I still squint in the shower so my contacts won't wash out. It's been a year now since he performed the procedure on both my eyes. I was skeptical and assumed it wouldn't last, but now I need to speak out. I still see perfectly and this miracle worker, Dr. Justo, has now done the same cataract surgery on a friend of mine, and my wife! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Dr. Justo. I DO BELIEVE IN MIRACLES THANKS TO DR. JUSTO!

Joi O.

Working with Roxanne has been a wonderful experience. She is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I drive all the way here from Gilbert, which is over an hour away, just to see her. I will continue to come back to the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center knowing I am in her care. I love my blue peel and the Obagi products.

Dr. Norman B.

Having recently completed both cataract surgeries, I am thrilled with the results. My eyes went from somewhat poor vision to amazing 20/15 vision. Although the skill and success of the surgery was appreciated, the purpose of this letter is to give recognition to you as an outstanding person. You provided courtesy, kind, compassionate and friendly service throughout. You have your additional “special talent" to make everything comfortable for every patient that you provide for. Your staff is also very professional, which compliments your practice.

P. Augustine

I’m thrilled with how much better my eyes look after surgery. I look rested instead of half asleep. Not only that, but you can actually see that I’m wearing eye shadow. The staff makes you feel special and they do everything in their power to make you feel comfortable during the procedure. If you ever decide to have any cosmetic surgery be sure go to the best, Dr. Justo and his fantastic staff. Through the years, I have spent a fortune on skin products that promised great looking skin to no avail. I made a commitment to use the Obagi products and will continue to do so for life. My skin has never looked so good; no more large pores or ugly brown spots. My skin feels amazingly soft and looks healthy. The staff is friendly and takes the time to assist you in any way they can. They are the BEST! I was nervous about having the permanent make-up done but after seeing some of Stephanie’s work I knew I was in good hands. It’s so nice not to have to draw on eyebrows, especially since I’m not the great artist that Stephanie is. The eyeliner and eyebrows are extremely natural looking, which is what I requested. Stephanie talks you through the procedure as she is working and does everything she can to make sure you are comfortable.

Madeline S.

My recent cataract surgery was an incredibly positive experience thanks to Dr. Emilio Justo and his professional and caring staff. I had some apprehension before surgery due to the fact that I only have vision in the eye that needed cataract surgery. I now have perfect vision in that eye thanks to Dr. Justo and his professional staff.

Tammy S.

Everyone at the Arizona Eye Institute and Cosmetic Laser Center is very professional and informative. Dr. Justo has great bedside manner. I appreciate the follow up calls made to my home following my surgery.

Ruth T.

Stephanie, I just want to thank you for the "GREAT" job you did on my eyebrows. As you know, I was very nervous about having them done and searched many places locally before deciding to go all the way to Arizona. This was based a lot on the great job you did on my friend, Gindy. It did cost a little more than some of the places I researched, but was well worth the $ and the trip. I decided not to tell any of my family, except my husband, that I was having it done. When he picked me up at the airport he said he was a little afraid of how I would look, but was quite relieved to see that they looked so good. Also, this past weekend, I was with my four sisters and asked each of them separately if they could tell what I had done to my face. They looked "and looked" me over and not one of them could tell that I had done the tattoo! They were amazed how good they looked, and you know how critical sisters can be! You are such a professional at making sure they look natural in shape, size and color. This is amazing, since you only had pictures that I emailed you to work from. The environment was so relaxing and your calming voice talking me through the procedure made me feel very relaxed and confident. I have to say, it is so wonderful to go to bed with eyebrows and wake up with them too! Again, thanks so much for doing such a great job.

Linda Willis
