Recently there have been announcements among various government leaders on the topic of whether it continues to be appropriate to wear masks in very specific settings, and asking that businesses such as ours continue to review our public safety and mask requirements. As a business providing important health care services to the community, we are committed to top quality care that also prevents the spread of any illness, including COVID-19.  While we respect everyone’s personal choices surrounding this matter, the nature of our work with our patients require that we work in close proximity of each other and therefore we believe it is in the best interest of our business to continue wearing masks until further notice.  These precautions are appropriate given the demographics of many of our patients that place them in what medical experts consider “at risk” groups that are important to us to keep safe and well.
We will revisit this policy once we have more time and information to evaluate the impact the executive order has on our industry and community.  In the meantime, we respectfully ask that while you are providing us the privilege of caring for you and your loved ones, that you please respect our mask policy. Masks are required on every individual in the building, covering the mouth and nose. 
We understand that this has been a trying time for all involved, and we are all ready to get back to normal as soon as possible. We are working hard to create processes that will allow us to do so shortly. We are confident that within a short time, if we can all work together, we will return to normal. We are very excited to see your smiling faces again, soon.

Welcome Dr. Zambrano By Emilio Justo on February 08, 2019

Dr. Zambrano

Please join us in welcoming our newest Optometrist, Dr. Manuel Zambrano. We are proud to have Dr. Zambrano join our Founder & Medical Director Emilio M. Justo, M.D., and our Director of Optometry, Eugene Shifrin, O.D., to aid in the vision care of our community as we celebrate our 30th anniversary.

Dr. Zambrano brings 20 years of medical optometry experience to the practice, with expertise in managing glaucoma and macular degeneration, diagnosing cataracts, co-managing post-operative cataract surgery patients, diagnosing diabetic retinopathy and treating dry eye syndrome. He has served patients needing routine vision exams and eyewear, as well as patients experiencing traumatic eye injuries and even complex neuro-optometry cases, and is ready to take on any care needed by patients. 

"I am proud to invite a 20-year veteran of the Navy, who has founded the Traumatic Brain Injury/Vision Center of Excellence for the Wounded Warrior Program to our practice," said Dr. Justo. "He has the worldly skills, education and passion to provide any treatment our community needs, and to help us continue to grow and allow our patients and their vision to thrive. Dr. Zambrano will be a big boost to our community's quality of life."

During his service in the Navy, Dr. Zambrano has worked as an optometrist throughout the world, working in mid- to large-scale hospitals, in submarines, and serving thousands while stationed at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. He is fluent in both English and Spanish.

Dr. Zambrano will work together with Dr. Justo and Dr. Shifrin to provide top quality care for all patients. His greatest passion is ensuring each individual gets the unique care that they require based on their personal needs.

We invite you to call us to schedule an exam with Dr. Zambrano at our Sun City West, Sun City and Wickenburg offices.
