Dr.  Derk is very familiar with the local healthcare scene, having provided podiatry services at the Paxton Clinic for over 25 years before joining the GAH Medical Staff.  He welcomed the natural progression to becoming a GAH specialty physician, and Derk now sees practicing from three Gibson locations as an opportunity to expand quality podiatric care to the rural areas surrounding Gibson Area Hospital and its clinics.

A native of the southwest suburbs, Dr. Derk received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from the University of Illinois and attended Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science where he completed his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM).  He is married to a fellow podiatrist, and they have two daughters and one son.  Their family also consists of a menagerie of animals including a dog, rabbit, horse, fish, and chickens.  In his leisure time, Dr. Derk enjoys hunting, fishing, woodworking, and robotics.


Services provided include general podiatry care, diabetic foot care as well as foot and ankle surgery
