I feel that God placed Dr. Familua in my life. It was such a blessing to have him as my surgeon. I was in so much pain,then it was as if Dr. Familua just came out of the sky for me.
Our entire family feels that he is an awesome doctor. He is very compassionate. He never scared my mother nor us. He is very knowledgeable. I was very surprised that he is the only doctor that we have known that answers his own calls at night. What can I say… our entire family loves him
Saved my life! All of a sudden I was in bad shape needing two surgeries. Dr. Familua was fantastic, as well as his NP Annette Gonzalez. This is the guy to see if you need surgery.
The total ordeal was an excellent experience. Since day one the young ladies in front office were amazing, very attentive and customer oriented...I was explained all that was happening and was going to happen on day of surgery... The only thing i did not really appreciate was that the doctor was never around until day of surgery...i mainly dealt with the woman in the office..but i guess that is his style! I will recommend this place!
Thank you Dr Familua and staff for paying attention to details, I went in for a difficult medical condition, and after being sent from one specialist to the other, Dr Familua examined me and advised surgery to correct the problem. He explained the risks involved with this big surgery if I didn't lose some weight. I took his advice and surgery was successful. No complications. If I only knew of this doctor before, I wouldn't have wasted time and money on other surgeries that didn't help me. Dr Familua, only God can thank you for what you have done for me and my family. Though at times, I waited a bit long in the clinic, It is definitely worth every wait.
Good experience, friendly staff, the doctor did a great job
Super helpful staff and doctor. From the little doctor visits all the way up to the day of my surgery, I had great service. Every bit of information was given to me and if I had questions, they were all answered. Doctor was very nice and my surgery went very smooth. I would definitely come back if needed.
Dr Familua will always be a great surgeon and I will always recommend this surgeon to anyone who will speak to me about a recommendation. He is a amazing doctor and is very helpful
