Candace Fugate, MD, FAAP

As the daughter of two teachers, Dr. Fugate has always been interested in working with children. She earned her Bachelor and Master degrees in Biology from Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky, and also completed a secondary education program before becoming a college instructor. Following a few years as a college instructor, Dr. Fugate attended medical school at the University of Louisville and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1996. She completed both her internship and pediatric residency at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.

A Kentucky native, Dr. Fugate and her husband are Western Kentucky University Basketball fans. When they're not cheering on the WKU Hilltopers, they enjoy traveling, the outdoors, and spending time with their two yellow labs.

Dr. Fugate was named one of Washingtonian Magazine's Top Doctors of 2017.

Patient Reviews

Dr. Fugate has been my grandson's doctor for 12 years. From the first appointment as a new patient she truly cared about a very sick boy that his other doctor misdiagnosed and caused him to end up in the hospital for a week. Dr. Fugate did not want to see us back in the hospital and gave him the attention and care a little 5 year old needed. She has been our primary pediatrician ever since. She always seems to know exactly what is wrong with him and includes him on any decisions about his medications and treatment. The thought of us having to transfer to an adult doctor in another year is going to be difficult. She definitely sets the bar high for other doctors!

Dr. Fugate has been our primary pediatrician for 11 years. Not only is she an expert in pediatric issues, but an excellent physician overall. I wish we had adult primary care at the level of detail that she provides. She is knowledgeable, accurate, and thorough. There have been multiple occasions when we have taken our children to an emergency room or urgent care and the physicians were stumped or provided an incomplete diagnosis. Then, when we take our children to Dr. Fugate for follow-up, she immediately knows what is going on and how to treat it. I highly recommend Dr. Fugate and this office.

Dr. Fugate has been both of my son's primary Ped. for many years now. She is a wonderful listener, treats you as an equal partner in your child's health decisions and along with her staff and Nurse Practitioners, provides great care. I've always been able to get a same-day appointment when needed. She collaborates with my son's other doctors, even in complex situations as I have one with autism and another who was treated with T Cell Leukemia.

Dr. Fugate has been my grandson's pediatrician for over 7 years. Dr. Fugate listens to JJ and explains everything she is doing so he understands it. She is the only doctor JJ will see. She has never been wrong about what is going on with JJ and she genuinely cares about her patients. She is an excellent doctor and I recommend her all the time.

My children have seen Dr. Fugate for 12 years. She has always taken excellent care of them and made them feel very comfortable. She has communicated extremely well with me, their mom. She listens to every question I have with respect. I have every confidence in her medical ability because she has been excellent with my children for so long. I highly recommend her.
