Michael Derkevorkian, DVM
Chief of Staff
As Veterinarian, Dr. Mike's responsibilities are to provide quality healthcare services to clients and their pets. Dr. Mike graduated from the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Mike worked at several small animal hospitals and veterinary emergency services before purchasing Maple Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Mike has a special interest in surgery and internal medicine. Some of the surgeries that Dr. Mike has a special interest in include knee surgery (MRIT), ear surgery (TECABO), and a variety of other surgeries such as limb amputation, liver and bladder surgery, and soft tissue surgery. He also has a special interest in auto-immune diseases. This special interest developed as a young vet school student while his mother was suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, which is an auto-immune disease. His mother fought hard against the disease for roughly 20 years and eventually lost her battle in 2008. Dr. Mike has also brought a unique service to Maple Veterinary Hospital since he bought the practice. That service is In-Home Humane euthanasia. We all know how difficult this time is for the family of a pet, and Dr. Mike wants everyone to have all the options available to make this difficult time a little less difficult.
In his free time, Dr. Mike enjoys spending time with his wife Amanda and three daughters, Millei, Libby, and Hazel. He is also an avid Spartan Fan!
