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
Excellent surgeon, I would recommend him to anybody that needs a surgeon. He was very patient and explained everything in detail. His staff are awesome, and very helpful. Dr.familua would call me personally to check on my progress.
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
Dr. Familua is a great surgeon that is friendly, explained my condition thoroughly and made me feel very comfortable. Thank you Dr. Familua. NP and office staff was also very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Familua and all his staff.
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.
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.
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.
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."
Dr.Familua did I great job explaining everything and taking care of my surgery.
Profesional and caring team of medical care providers. Always willing and prompt to respond to all questions and issues. I never felt like a product, the entire team makes you feel reassured that your concerns are being taken into consideration. Going under the knife is always a stressful situation, Dr Familua and his dedicated team helps to take some of the “edge” off. My many thanks to all involved in my treatment.
