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
Glad I chose Dr. Familua! His staff and Annette Gonzalez, FNP were great and courteous. He made me feel at ease prior to surgery and answered all my questions. Awesome bedside manner! I definitely recommend him!
Dr. Familua is an amazing surgeon! He helped me give my health back . I was in complete pain because of gallstones. Dr. Familua did a wonderful job removing them and my energy is back. I would highly recommend him. The staff and nurses are also wonderful and so kind. Thank you Dr. Familua!
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
