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
Overall experience was excellent! Dr. Familua was kind and patient in explaining procedure and he made sure to answer all my questions regarding gall bladder surgery. Office staff was extremely courteous and took care of necessary paperwork and preparations in a very timely manner! I am blessed to have been referred to his office!
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.

I had surgery by Dr. Familua, he was recommended by my gastroenterologist. He did great! He went in before the surgery. To answer any questions and make sure I knew what I was getting done. Recovery was as expected, normal pain and he prescribed pain meds. In the office you will most likely see the nurse practitioner. Makes sense as he is busy doing many diff kinds of surgeries to other patients. Highly recommend!

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.
