Dr. Derek Murphy

Dr. Murphy began his college education at Walsh University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Biology/Premed degree. Shortly afterward, he went to the Nova Southeastern College of Medicine and received his Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine. He then completed a 3-year residency in neuromusculoskeletal medicine and osteopathic manipulative medicine at Larkin Community Hospital.
Since that time, he has completed a fellowship in anti-aging, metabolic, and functional medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He is also certified in chelation through the American College for Advancement in Medicine. He also completed his training at the Helms Medical Institute for Acupuncture, which offers the most rigorous and respected acupuncture training for physicians.


What made me want to become a physician is my grandfather. When I was a child, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. During freshman year in high school my grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
Over the years I slowly watched my grandfather’s mental and physical health decline. My grandfather was a steelworker and did not have a lot of money to have good health care. He bounced around from doctor to doctor for his condition only receiving more and more medications without other options.
When I watched my grandfather change from my one of the most important figures in my life to not even remembering me, it broke my heart, and I felt powerless not being able to help. I swore from the day that I would one day become a doctor and try to find answers and help those who the traditional medical system could not improve.
My personal belief is always to try to find the root cause of a disorder and improve quality of life for a patient no matter the condition. It brings me great joy to help those who suffer from these disorders some hope so they do not have to feel as confused and powerless as I once did when treating my grandfather.
