Best in town.

I have been a patient of Dr. Aquilar for many years now. Although I wouldn't trade my neurologist for any other one. I would dread going in for my appointments every 6 months, his receptionist (LISA) always had a bad attitude and was very short, and very rude to ALL patients!! However a beautiful and very pleasant new face took me by surprise on my last appointment. Belinda is the new receptionist, very professional, compassionate, and pleasant young lady. I am so glad to know Dr. Aquilar's practice will now be acquiring a better reputation with his new staff. I now recommend this practice 100%.

VERY PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE

Dr. Aguilar is very professional and kind. There are some bad reviews about his front office staff, but THAT STAFF MEMBER IS NO LONGER EMPLOYED there. You are seen at the time of your appointment and not a minute later. There is a shortage of neurologists in Las Cruces. I would much rather see a kind, informative and professional doctor than the other choice. Their office does not accept Medicaid. I am a very happy patient and I am treated well.

You can't be picky when you have limited choices in your area.

Practices a precise, thorough questioning (yes or no) routine and exam (reflexes). Clearly has no interest in being interrupted by patient's questions regarding clarification. Staff is curt; verging on rudeness. "Customer service" is extinct here.

Less than impressed

Impossible to get an appointment, front staff is very rude. Dr Aguilar refused to adjust my medications despite the fact that I was still having seizures. All around not a good experience.

One Star

Dr Aguilar himself is a very kind man, but the associate at the front desk **** is extremely rude, unprofessional, and lacks any sort of empathy. I was told by **** that Dr Aquilar does not make it a practice to call family members (even when they have medical power of attorney) to discuss their loved ones care. Numerous messages were left with no return call from the physician. My mother is going on 2 months post procedure waiting for a plan of care and diagnosis. Her appt is cancelled because labs were lost. I have had to provide my contact information to **** on 3 different occasions, yet I am never called and my number was still not listed as the emergency contact and person to notify. I work in a large integrated health care system and work along side many different physicians every day who display compassion and empathy by talking to family about the plan of care. I will never recommend this physician as long as the front staff is employed in this practice. Very very sad.
