A Word From Dr. Dereck Totten:

“I enjoy working with every type of patient. My training and skills allows me to provide many different services that a typical family medicine physician does not.

The reason I chose to practice full scope family medicine is because I want to be able to care for as many medical conditions as possible. To me, this is what being a physician in rural Kansas is all about. A partnership. Having mutual respect, shared values, trust, and knowledge will improve the quality of care we can provide as physicians. The best health outcomes come when patients and physicians work together.”


Dr. Totten is originally from Marysville, KS and has a deep love and appreciation for rural KS. Totten is married to Kysha, who is also a doctor at FCHC. After spending time in the Colby area they knew  they wanted to make northwest KS their home.

He enjoys spending time with family and friends, cheering on the Jayhawks & Royals, running, reading, and watching movies.
