“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and training Dr. Anderson and Dr. Aguila in lower extremity peripheral nerve surgery. They now work together at The Anderson Center for Neuropathy and Chronic Pain. It’s rare to find a team like this. They are compassionate doctors who share a dedication for helping those with nerve pain. They know how to handle the most difficult cases. If you suffer from neuropathy with nerve compressions, chronic pain or restless legs, I wholeheartedly recommend you to see them for a consultation. “
