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
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.
Dr Familua is the BEST I recommend him with the greatest confidence. He saved my sister from an awful situation. We are blessed to know Dr Familua.
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.
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.
My mom is a new patient of Dr. Familua. He is extremely patient and courteous. He took his time and made sure all our questions were answered. Not a lot of doctors do that nowadays. We feel we are in good hands thanks to him and his wonderful staff. Post op update. My mom had a hemicolectomy done by Dr. Familua. It is safe to say she is doing well and in good spirits. Dr. Familua from day one has demonstrated excellent bedside manner. He has always had the ability to comfort my mom. Dr. Familua deserves praise for his knowledge and skill. He and his staff have done an amazing job. I can’t thank him enough. I highly recommend Dr. Familua. He is an excellent surgeon and even better human being. May god continue to bless 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!
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."
I will not hesitate to return to Dr Familua. Both him and his staff were always courteous and professional. They walked me through all the steps. I was well taken care of and recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.
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!
