Dr. Oluwamayowa Franklin Familua made my experience great. My surgery and recovery where very fast. And the staff at Dr. Familua office was very nice and helpful.
in El Paso, TX |
Dr. Familua was very thorough and spend time asking me questions. Very respectful and answered all my questions. He had a medical intern and was courteous to introduce him to me. This put me at ease and I would definitely recommend Dr. Familua to anyone. I liked that I obtained a call from a telephone service and employee to remind me of the appointment. The front office and clinical staff are very attentive and courteous. Amazing group of individuals...

Excellent doctor very friendly and knowledgeable easy to talk to.

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.
