DR. EMILIO JUSTO: My background is that, first of all, I attended the University of Michigan for both college and medical school, followed by my internship in Indianapolis at St. Vincent Hospital. Then I did my ophthalmic and laser surgery training in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Hospital Center. Following that, I finished there in 1989 in Washington, D.C. and then moved to Arizona where I established the practice where I am today. So, I have been here since 1989 and came out here specifically, just because of the weather. It is definitely home. I am not planning on going anywhere anytime soon. I love the warmth. I love the sunshine. I love the relative beauty and cleanliness of the city – much different from coming from the Midwest.
