Dr. Familua is one of the most outstanding Physicians. The caring and professionalism from his entire team is incredible and El Paso is very lucky to have such a gifted Surgeon. The new offices are comfortable with all patient's safety clearly the Number One Priority.
My mom is a new patient of Dr. Familua. He is extremely patient and courteous. He took his time and made sure all our questions were answered. Not a lot of doctors do that nowadays. We feel we are in good hands thanks to him and his wonderful staff. Post op update. My mom had a hemicolectomy done by Dr. Familua. It is safe to say she is doing well and in good spirits. Dr. Familua from day one has demonstrated excellent bedside manner. He has always had the ability to comfort my mom. Dr. Familua deserves praise for his knowledge and skill. He and his staff have done an amazing job. I can’t thank him enough. I highly recommend Dr. Familua. He is an excellent surgeon and even better human being. May god continue to bless him.
I was recommended to this doctor by a friend, I had an issue with umbilical hernia for year's now so decided to get it done. I went with Dr. Familua, the front staff very friendly and professional very fast. The only problem I had is that my first appointment I didn’t see the Doctor at all, I saw his PA which she was very nice, but am a person who judges on first impressions I was really disappointed on not meeting him for the first time. The second appointment was different I got to meet the Doctor for the first time WOW awesome. I knew immediately I was in the right hands, he explained everything in detailed what he needed to do and how I was going to feel after the surgery, that was great for being my first surgery. The day of the surgery he came up to me as a friend talked and made me feel calm. I felt like his only patient at that time. I highly recommend the surgeon to anyone with issues. We’re blessed in having a doctor like this in El Paso. Miguel Angel Rubio
