Exceptional bedside manner. I had a very difficult medical condition and took his time to care for me. He would still check up on me in the hospital even after finishing his surgeries late. A true surgeon with a caring heart. I thank you for what you do in this city. God bless you Dr. Familua

Outstanding physician and surgeon Highly recommend Dr. Familua to anyone needing surgery. He is honest with the pros and cons of the surgery, if you don't really need the surgery, he will tell you. Not just doing surgery for the sake of it. Thanks for being here in El Paso.

after being schedule for my gall bladder surgery 6 days before have to go to emergency at the Hospital and I asked for Dr. Familua and my surprise was he denied to perform my surgery because he got full schedule. Be SURE if you have your surgery schedule hold your pain and not going to emergency until your surgery date. Unprofessional or maybe because I have medicare and private insurance pay him more

I am very impressed with Dr. Familua's approach to his patients as well as the dedication his staff is to their respective duties. Dr. Familua is very thorough in his initial examination and takes his time to get to know the patient and their affliction. He is a very caring individual, easy-going and NOT pretentious (as I've dealt with in the past). He is VERY knowledgeable and a talented surgeon (did an awesome job on me!) and I would not only give he and his staff FIVE stars, but recommend him to all who are interested. I was sent to him by 2 of my co-workers (who couldn't say enough kind things about him) and I don't regret my choice. The office staff is efficient and thorough and if you need disability insurance paperwork filled out, they are quick to respond. Whenever I have called the office, I get to speak to a staff member, not a recorded message and ALL questions asked have either been answered, or someone was quick to seek out the information. THANK YOU Dr. FAMILUA!

Best surgeon in the world! He saved my mom’s life who ended up having very aggressive cancer. During surgery he acted quickly and came up with a new plan to help her. He’s a gifted surgeon who spent quality time answering all of our questions. Mom felt he was very nice, explained procedures well, and helped the family understand what was going on. Because this amazing surgeon caught all of the cancer my mom is now 5 years in remission. We highly recommend him!
