Ratings for Dr. Joseph W. Aguiar
I went to him for BA and I'm totally satisfied! I requested to be "proportional" and he explained several options and helped me decide. He and the staff explained everything and answered all my questions. I didn't feel pressured or rushed. I was very comfortable with him. My husband is also very satisfied with the results!!
I saw Dr. Aguiar for a breast reduction consultation in February 2015. They were suppose to submit paperwork and pictures to my insurance company to cover procedure. I waited a month and never heard back, so I called. They said he was very busy but they would submit and to wait 2 weeks. I waited , then called again. Still busy. I thought this was very unprofessional of doctor and staff who was suppose to submit for approval. After another month I checked with my insurance company and they paid him for my visit but there was nothing about an authorization that would cover procedure. Nobody ever called me from his office. I must assume that they took my copay and money for office visit and did not want to do procedure. I still don't know because after my 3rd call to the office , I left a message and no return call.
I damaged my hand 29 years ago which resulted in little function in my last 3 fingers. For the past 18 years and have been suffering from pain that started in my wrist shooting up my arm . All the doctors I have been to told me there was noting that could be done and that it was arthritis. Within 5 minutes of visiting Dr Aguiar, he told me that it was not arthritis and that he thinks he could correct it. A few weeks later he performed hand surgery removing scar tissue, restoring mobility to my hand. Six weeks after the surgery, I have no pain in my wrist and almost 100% mobility of my hand again which I haven't had in over 29 years. For the first time in my adult life I am able to have a real handshake. I would recommend Dr. Aguiar to anyone, not just for hand surgery but for any surgery.
Dr. Aguiar is the best. I ended up in the ER and he performed the surgery. The results were better than expected. I am back to playing tennis and living life to the fullest. Every follow-up visit has been perfect. The staff from top to bottom is polite and professional. Dr. A. answers every question clearly and actually cares about my well being. I could never say enough great things about Dr. A. Nice to see a doctor with a heart! Thanks again Dr. Aguiar.
