Patient Comments (6)
in Sacramento, CA |
Went to Dr Aguilar very anxious and nervous about my needed surgery but he was very calm and very easy to understand as he explained what would be done. When it had to be done again I was much calmer and knew he would do the very best that he could and he did. Surgery has been completed with positive results. Plus I never had to take any pain meds at all. He is the best. Have no qualms about sending family or friends to him. Had a great experience with him and his office.

I had surgery some years ago to repair a ventral hernia. Dr. Aguilar performed the procedure which left me feeling great within days. I healed without pain medication and returned for the follow up believing I'd never see him again. Recently, I had a Physical Therapy session where I stretched my abdomen and felt some discomfort. This led to a revisit Dr. Aguilar to make sure I was OK (and subsequently to this review). I highly recommend him to anyone needing hernia repair.

Very professional and very caring for his patients. He asked questions he also takes the time to listen to what you have to say. I am Grateful to have Him as my doctors...

He just performed, using the highest of standards, a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy on me. My experience as a surgical patient was complicated by the fact I'm also a seasoned Perioperative RN. Dr. Aguilar alleviated my anxiety and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I've had zero postoperative complications and now recovering smoothly. Great guy. Excellent surgeon. Hands down.

Second surgery for hernia and now looking at possible 3rd hernia and would not consider any other surgeon.

Amazingly willing to take a look at my wife in her condition when others wouldn't. He is comforting and has gone to extremes taking care of her far past her initial surgical care needs. He checks on her and the family daily. He truly saved her life and is an wonderful man.
