Care Clinic of Marquette names new medical director
MARQUETTE — Dr. Michael Czerkes has been appointed by the Care Clinic of Marquette to serve as its new medical director.
Czerkes grew up in Charlevoix, a small town on the northern shore of lower Michigan. He grew up with a nurse for a mother and a pharmacist for a father, which influenced him as a child to get into the medical profession, according to a press release. He didn’t expect to get into obstetrics and gynecology, but during a routine rotation during medical school, he realized he really enjoyed delivering babies and helping couples struggling with infertility.
Czerkes attended medical school at Michigan State University, and completed his OB/GYN training in Portland, Maine, at Maine Medical Center. He is currently employed full time at OSF Healthcare in Escanaba.
Czerkes believes in treating patients with openness and honesty, and he takes a teamwork approach to patient care.
He has a passion for natural family planning and how it promotes a fuller understanding of a woman’s cycle to achieve a state of health. The release further states: “Czerkes believes in respect for all human life, and feels this is vitally important to practicing medicine and most especially women’s health.”
Dr. Czerkes and his wife, Heidi, have six children and are heavily involved in their church community. In his free time, he likes to spend time with his family outdoors camping, backpacking, hiking, bicycling, skiing and snowshoeing.
