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
Very please with Dr. Familua and his NP Annette Gonzales with the care. Professional and helpful staff, including surgery scheduler Nellie and Victoria and of coarse staff overall. I highly recommend this practice.God bless.
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!

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
