I am an employee and highly recommend him, because if he treats his patients as well as he treats me than I suppose they feel the same. He is caring, forgiving, kind, extremely generous, etc.

My experience with Dr. Figlesthaler and his team made me feel valued as a patient and respected as a person. His nurses were consistently professional, gentle, reassuring, kind, and all preformed their responsibilities as one. Dr. Figlesthaler was very knowledgeable, simplified my complex issue and most importantly made me feel comfortable during an uncomfortable time in my life.

On two occasions prior to my radiation and surgical procedures for prostate cancer, this office, headed by Dr. Figlestaler, had not one, but two signed documents asking to send the paperwork on my prostate treatment to another practice in Naples, Florida Cancer Specialists. In both cases, I assume for competitive reasons, they did not follow up and send out my records. I had to do it myself. This kind of non patient-centric medicine is just inappropriate. Doctors are in business like anyone else, but to deny another office the ability to help a patient going forward is totally unacceptable behavior. I would not recommend this office or anyone in Dr. Figelstaler's office.
