      After consulting twice with the doctor he changed his position to perform a surgery that I was later advised was necessary due to life threatening circumstances. His principles are simply not core values just jargon that misrepresents and misleads patients. Records contained false documentation for medication that I was never prescribed and the patient assessement had answers to questions that I was never asked. If you are wise...document or record your consultations and request records

      February 23 I had my gallbladder removed, I saw Dr. Familua the night of my surgery and he never checked on me again! When I left the hospital I had an appointment to see him on the 3rd of March, which they cancel. I had an appointment for March 8th, by the 8th I've had my staples for 14 days and two of the wounds were infected! I told the receptionist this when she called to cancel my appointment. All she said was you need to go to your provider or the emergency room. No follow up!

      Staff was very good and professional. Dr was very good as well. I have surgery done by Dr Familua and I have no problem during my recovering. Everything was great. Keep up with the good work.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
