We understand your medical journey has likely had some detours. Let’s get you back on track.
Are you tired of doctors pushing prescriptions as a cure-all? If you’re anything like most medically compromised patients, you’ve experienced the fundamental disadvantages of this approach. The facts are simple: there is no cure-all – side-effects oftentimes outweigh the benefits – and prescriptions do not treat underlying problems…just mask them. Dr. Murphy takes a completely different approach.
Are you not being heard or truly listened to? When seeking medical help, are you prescribed prescription drug after prescription drug? Do you feel like no one has taken the time to truly understand the root cause of your issues?
You’re not alone.
There is a better way.
Dr. Derek Murphy is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in St. Cloud who uses wellness functional medicine to help his patients’ bodies function as they are intended after developing pain or sickness. Using an integrative approach, he can combine Eastern and Western medicine to help find the source and use other tests not traditionally used to find many common disorders that patients suffer from like leaky gut, adrenal fatigue, and many other disorders till they come see us.
Over the years, he’s had a lot of success helping people finally overcome chronic autoimmune conditions, general anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. He’s done this by combining orthopedics with medical acupuncture and osteopathic manipulation. These techniques allow him to take an individualized approach that addresses the root of these issues rather than just treating the symptoms, so a patient enjoys lasting health and wellness.
“I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2007. It has been a long battle which has resulted in multiple medications, infusions, a surgery to remove 2 feet of my intestines as well as many missed workdays and events. It has been debilitating and exhausting. I first heard about Dr. Murphy through my sister. I started researching information about medicinal cannabis and it seemed to be a possible option for me. I scheduled my appointment with Dr. Murphy and he was very informative. We had a thorough discussion to see if this was a good fit for me. He gave me his recommendations and told me everything I would need to know. This has been one of the best decisions I have made. I’m currently in full remission and am getting my energy back as well as feeling great! Thank you, Dr. Murphy!”

“Presently I am a snowbird and I I was fortunate enough to find Dr Derek Murphy in Florida.. He actually was recommended to me by another physician I use. What makes him so special? Besides being a medical physician Dr. Murphy went above and beyond his medical training to study and specialize in Functional Medicine. This is a unique field that should be used more frequently by the medical profession.”
