Video: Dr. Justo Background

Dr. Emilio Justo gives a brief background of his education, internship, and training history that helped build the success he shares with his patients today. With extensive experience and a dedication to continuing his own education, Dr. Justo is one of the best resources for cosmetic and laser eye surgery in Phoenix today. He loves Arizona's warmth and sunshine and does not plan on leaving any time soon.

"Over the years, many people have asked me my secret for creating beautiful results and achieving excellent vision for my patients. The answer is simple: I listen carefully and attentively… By doing so, I am able to create an individualized rapport and bond with each patient that is uniquely unsurpassed, and I also make sure to relieve any concerns by answering all of your questions. The best part of my life's work is seeing the outstanding positive benefits that either visual rehabilitation thru modern cataract surgery may achieve, or the increased self-confidence and self-esteem resulting from facial or body cosmetic surgery. It's this type of human contact and positive feedback that keeps me practicing…..and smiling!"

On the Constant Pursuit of Knowledge

"My education did not stop with medical school or residency. Treatments, medications, lasers, surgeries, and lens implants that were unheard of when I graduated are revolutionizing the fields of ophthalmology and cosmetic surgery today. That's why I continually meet and share ideas with other medical professionals of various disciplines. I stay current on the most recent techniques and include the ones that I find to be effective and proven in the care that my team and I provide."

- Emilio Justo, M.D.

Dr. Justo completes over three times the yearly required education for a surgeon within his field of practice.

Beyond the Arizona Eye Institute

Dr. Justo is not only a plastic surgeon and ophthalmologist in Phoenix; he also provides modern medical and surgical eye care to the underprivileged in Mexico and Cuba through mission trips he personally organizes.

"My family and my spiritual faith continue to inspire me to commit myself to lifelong learning inside and outside of medicine, and to share this knowledge by volunteering my clinical skills at home and abroad. I remember the first time I volunteered my services in a foreign country. Most of the people I treated could not afford one meal a day, let alone health care. When I saw the faces of those individuals who were so happy and appreciative to have someone take a sincere interest in their health, it gave me an entirely new perspective on what I do."

- Emilio Justo, M.D.
