Dr. Fitzig became interested in medicine as a young boy watching his paternal uncle, who was a pediatrician, take care of him. His desire to be like his uncle was then solidified during his involvement in neurologic research while in college. During this time, he encountered different doctors, and decided to dive further into the vast world of medicine.
