Dr. Richard A Figler has the following 3 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- Sports Medicine
A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.
It is the responsibility of sports medicine specialist to clear athletes to return to the playing field when they are deemed fit. These doctors also advise athletes on how to avoid injury through proper care of their bodies while training.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Figler is the best. He went out of his way to accommodate me. He is highly knowledgeable yet listened to my concerns and questions and addressed each one. I am a bit older but I believe he saw treating my injury just as much a priority as some of his younger athletic patients. He even took the time to consult with a colleague and included my input as well to come up with a treatment plan.
Dr. Figler is the best doctor I have ever seen. He is very caring and understanding, he knows how to listen to me and allows me to ask many questions, of which he answers very thoroughly, making it easy for me to understand. I've had a concussion for 7 months, which has led to multiple brain and spinal cord issues, and I am no longer able to play soccer after having played for 10 years. He listens to me very well and I get the sense that he understands me and what I'm going through. I can trust him with everything and he's always just a phone call away if I need anything. I have nothing bad to say about Dr. Figler, I'm very very happy he was recommended to me.
I have seen about 10 doctors in the last 3 years. Many of them told me that my pain was in my head and that they couldn't help me. Dr. Figler was the first one to treat me like a human being and did whatever it took to find the correct diagnosis. I was loosing hope on a daily basis before I saw him and he basically saved my life after only a few appointments. Highly recommend him!!
