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
as per patient daughter CARMEN HARRINGTON her review as followed is "Dr. Familua saved my dads life. He is very professional and does an excellent job educating to make the best decisions possible. He has wonderful bedside manner and it is obvious he cares about the patient. If you have a choice I would highly recommend Dr. Familua. Our family owes him a debt of gratitude."
I will not hesitate to return to Dr Familua. Both him and his staff were always courteous and professional. They walked me through all the steps. I was well taken care of and recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.
I would like to thank the Dr. For his prompt service. I would like to thank the girls under his employment for being very prompt when calling the phone and always giving me the correct information when it comes to questions. Everyone in the office is very polite, the nurse practitioner is very informative and listens to the problems of the patient.
A great experience w/Dunamis Surgical Center. Dr. Familua is a wonderful surgeon; he was thorough; took time to go over my diagnosis. He is kind and friendly; the staff is always helpful. They ensured the surgery process went smoothly along w/my follow up appts. I am so glad I chose Dr. Familua as my surgeon. I highly recommend him to anyone. May God 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
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!
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.
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.
Love this Dr. and staff,I would recommend him to anyone having hernia surgery.Made sure I was taken care of from pre-surgery,Surgery,and my post surgery.The Staff and Dr. Familua were exceptionally profesional,and answered every question and concerns with the utmost respect .And to Nellie,who handle all paperwork necessary for my employer
