Eugene Shifrin, O.D., F.A.A.O. - Director of Optometry
Experience You Can Rely On
Dr. Shifrin brings more than a decade of valuable experience to the Arizona Eye Institute & Cosmetic Laser Center. He cares for a wide range of patients and needs, and has played a vital role in providing pre- and post-operative care for patients following refractive or cataract procedures. He co-manages cases with Medical Director, Emilio M. Justo, M.D. It is Dr. Shifrin's priority to surround every patient with the best possible care at every step.
"Treat your patients the way you want to be treated."
That simple suggestion from Dr. Shifrin's mentors resonated and has become a part of his daily practice. "To me, the meaning of that phrase goes far beyond a successful diagnosis and treatment. It encompasses the clinician's ability to listen, relate and understand your patients' needs and address them accordingly. Being in practice for more than a decade, I continuously strive to create a team oriented approach to my patients' ophthalmic needs. It begins with a comprehensive examination and listening to my patients' concerns. I aim for my patients to clearly understand their condition prior to leaving my office. I firmly believe that a trusting relationship is a cornerstone to a successful doctor-patient team."
