Dr. Familua is 'heaven-sent'. He took genuine interest in my mom since day "1". While hospitalized, he checked in on her every day and the one day he did not come in...he called and asked to speak to us over the phone. He is exceptionally professional and dedicated. Walking into his office today, his office staff conveys the same outstanding demeanor of professionalism. Great job! El Paso needs more dedicated surgeons as Dr. Familua!! God Bless

Excellent doctor very friendly and knowledgeable easy to talk to.
in El Paso, Texas |
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
in El Paso, TX |
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.
