Patient Comments (2)

He was my second opinion physician. I went with him for my surgery because of his thoroughness, attention to detail, he listened to my needs and concerns and spent a lot of time with me during our office visit. He does not use residents or med students which I liked.

I highly recommend Dr Aguilar. I was impressed with his skill, knowledge and manner of care. He did my lumbar spinal surgery in a December 2016, and should a need arise again, I will definitely return.
