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
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!
Very nice, very knowledgable, I would highly recommend! You won't be disappointed! They took care of me very well!
The doctor demonstrated concern, professionalisms, courtesy, and integrity. He was very informative inn explaining the problem at hand. I was referred to Dr. Familua by my primary Dr.Chukwu. I am a very happy camper.
Very informative and patient in explaining. I feel very comfortable and confident with everything we spoke about. Thank you to all providers as well.
Doctor and staff were very friendly. I was always treated and seen very fast. Staff listened to all my concerns and put me ease when I was concerned. I have been very happy with the treatment I've received.
Dr. Familua is one of the most outstanding Physicians. The caring and professionalism from his entire team is incredible and El Paso is very lucky to have such a gifted Surgeon. The new offices are comfortable with all patient's safety clearly the Number One Priority.
This was a very good experience. The staff was very informative and friendly. The Dr. came in a few hours before my surgery and explained what the procedure was going to be like as well as the follow up.
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.
Amazing providers! Extremely caring and took the time to explain my treatment plan and walked me through my in house procedure. He made sure I was comfortable to whole time.
