About Derek Chapman, PA
Derek Chapman understands that in order to live a healthy and fulfilling life, one must take care of the body and the mind.

Prior to starting with MindPath, Derek received his training as a Physician Assistant from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Myers, FL, where he received his M.S. in Health Sciences. Derek has spent over 3 years working in inpatient psychiatric settings where his focus was towards helping those with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizoaffective/schizophrenia. Regardless of whether you are seeking treatment for the first time or are looking to continue your care through MindPath services, Derek will strive to offer personalized care, friendly interactions, as well as the tools to succeed in your journey to better your mental health.
