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

A very peasant experience in terms of care. I was well Informed from start to finish. Wonderful Doctor and Staff. Best wishes to all of them!
Super helpful staff and doctor. From the little doctor visits all the way up to the day of my surgery, I had great service. Every bit of information was given to me and if I had questions, they were all answered. Doctor was very nice and my surgery went very smooth. I would definitely come back if needed.
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!
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.
