Biography

Dr. Figge's journey into healthcare started when his father suffered a heart attack while he was in high school. Dr. Figge then developed a passion for biology and other sciences in his high school and college years. His college professors were very supportive and helped focus his interests, leading to an undergraduate research project at Mayo Clinic. When Dr. Figge attended Harvard Medical School, he wanted to apply his knowledge to make pioneering discoveries in medicine and to provide exceptional healthcare experiences for his patients by offering them cutting-edge diagnostic methods and treatments. This passion has guided Dr. Figge's journey throughout his career. 

He is very passionate about endocrinology because this field provides him the opportunity to apply the latest scientific knowledge to yield a positive impact on the health of his patients and to improve the quality of their lives. The last decade in endocrinology has been fascinating, with significant advances in diagnosing and treating diabetes and thyroid conditions. 

Dr. Figge was drawn to Southwest Florida because he attended medical meetings in the region, and his family vacationed here on several occasions. Dr. Figge is constantly amazed by the area's ambiance and enjoys meeting people in the community.
