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
Dr. Familua and his staff were wonderful! I'm glad I was recommended to him for my procedure.
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!
