Michael Mirochna, M.D., and Derek Gasper, D.O., have joined the Porter Health System’s network of family practice physicians. Mirochna is seeing patients at Vale Park Primary Care, 401 Wall St., Valparaiso as well as at Lake Porter Medica, 336 W. U.S. 30 in Valparaiso.

Gasper is seeing patients at Glendale Primary Care, 1101 E. Glendale Blvd., Valparaiso.

A graduate of the Chicago Medical School, Dr. Mirochna completed a family medicine internship at the Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale Ariz. Following his internship, he served as a resident at St. Vincent Family Medicine, Indianapolis.

“When I was in high school, I had the opportunity to attend a medical camp,” said Dr. Mirochna, “and it was then I knew I wanted to be a doctor.” He said he finds family medicine particularly interesting because it allows him exposure to many different areas.

With his specialty in family medicine, Dr. Mirochna treats patients of all ages and with a variety of acute and chronic illnesses. He is also very committed to preventive medicine and provides services such as sport, school and annual physicals, immunizations and seasonal flu shots.

“It is a pleasure to be a part of this community, and I look forward to developing lasting relationships with my patients,” he said.

A graduate of Michigan State University, Dr. Gasper pursued a career in medical technology before receiving his doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. In his practice, Dr. Gasper treats patients from infancy through older adulthood who present with all types of acute and chronic illnesses. He also provides preventive medicine services such as physicals, seasonal flu shots and immunizations.

In commenting on his decision to pursue a career in family medicine, Dr. Gasper said, “Family medicine lets me personally interact with my patients and offer the compassionate, evidence-based medicine they deserve.”

Porter Health System has two hospital campuses and seven outpatient facilities serving patients in Porter, Lake, LaPorte and Jasper counties. With more than 350 physicians representing 50 medical specialties, Porter Health System is a leader in technology, innovation and overall patient care. For more information, call 219-263-4600.
