Dr.Derek Murphy D.O.

Almost Six years ago I introduced myself here as a husband and a father to two knucklehead boys... I still am. I am also an internist by training.  I was born and raised in central Indiana and have called this home my entire life.  Growing my roots from the Osteopathic background; I attended the founding school of Osteopathic Medicine (now ATSU)  in Kirksville, Missouri and graduated in 2004.  I had the opportunity to really develop from experiences During Training in Detroit, Michigan and surrounding hospitals in the early 2000s. There I turned into a big Detroit Sports fan with the Tigers topping the list.  I would have never imagined how much that experience prepared me for so much of what I have been through in my career. Medicine unfortunately has become more of a patient number and diagnosis code.  I take that variable out of our equation.  I want to know you and want you to know what we are doing for you.  I have long considered myself a teacher (even when I was in undergraduate) - I want you to know what we are doing, why we are doing it and where it is going to get us.    

The past five plus years have been the happiest professional years of my career.  I think it has something to do with the idea I am able to practice medicine my way; which I believe is the right way.  I have found the fun in "doctoring" again. We are the doctors office with caring staff who gives you the time you need to get the problems listened to and appropriately treated.  I want to thank every one of our growing number of patients so far for supporting what we are doing for you and your healthcare... 

I hope that if you are tired of what everyone has become accustomed to as "the norm" in medicine these days; that you then take a chance with our practice.  You will be glad you did. Give us a call today at 317-863-0830.
