His first assignment was that of a company doctor in charge of the medical department of mining companies in the States of Baja California and Guanajuato in Mexico, under very primitive conditions. After six years service as a mining camp doctor he was accepted as a surgical resident in 1952 at the Laird Memorial Hospital in Montgomery, WV. At the termination of his residency he returned to Monterrey, Mexico to open a private practice. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Bill Laird offered him a permanent position on his staff and Dr. Aguilar and his family returned to Montgomery where he served at Laird Memorial, now Montgomery General Hospital until his retirement in 1995. He practiced general and family medicine, surgery and obstetrics and became a highly respected physician throughout the area. Dr. Aguilar brought over 3,000 of God’s creatures into this world.

He flew to Mexico nine times in his own aircraft. He was also Director of the Medical Department of the Elkem Metals Plant at Alloy from 1991-2002 when the plant discontinued their medical services.  Throughout his entire life, Dr. Aguilar was heavily involved in community affairs. One of his most notable contributions was spear heading, together with other leaders in the community, the movement to transfer the West Virginia state penitentiary from Moundsville to the Mount Olive Correctional Facility in the Montgomery area. After fifty seven years of active practice, Dr. Aguilar retired on December, 2002 after closing his private practice on September 30, 1995, and the Elkem Medical Department in December 31, 2002.
