“What I most enjoy about my job is the people that I work with—my team and my patients included. Getting to know people in the community that I live in helps me to establish relationships and connect with my town.
I feel so fortunate to work with people and make a positive difference in their lives. It is a gift to make people more healthful, happy, and able to enjoy every day. I strive to make my patients’ experience as comfortable as possible while giving them confidence that they are receiving the best of care.” – Dr. Fugere

Outside the Office
A native of Burien, Dr. Fugere lives in Poulsbo with his wife Ann and daughters Bella and Ali. Ann teaches math at Olympic High School in Silverdale and the girls enjoy gymnastics, piano, and being a part of their local Scouts BSA group as part of the first wave of females in Scouting.
Having had a fantastic childhood here in the PNW, Dr. Fugere spends as much time outdoors as possible, enjoying all the natural diversity and activities that this region offers. He spends most of his free time trying to cultivate that experience with his own children so they develop the same passion he has for the outdoors.
