Richard Fuhler, MD is a native of Arkansas, the final landing station for his dad’s military career. After finishing high school he went on to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville for a B.S. in physics and mathematics. School loans and an interest to get out of small town America lead to an adventure living in Los Angeles, CA. After working as an antenna design engineer for land, sea, and airborne radar he returned to Arkansas for medical school. He earned a MD degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. His education was continued at Barnes Hospital, St Louis, MO for internship and residency in internal medicine.
Dr. Fuhler has been in private practice in Missouri and Illinois. When a chance to practice in Alabama arose, he jumped at the opportunity. Now a firm transplant to the gulf coast he is thrilled to join Focus and add ADHD specialization to his practice.
A resident of Mobile, Dr. Fuhler enjoys the beautiful area walking his dogs Abby and Sam. Other hobbies for the gulf coast include cycling, diving, sailing and supporting local artists and performances.
