Hancock Family Health Center – OB/GYN Welcomes Sheryl Parks, MD

Hancock, MI – Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center (UGL) welcomes Sheryl Parks, MD, to their team of OB/GYN providers at the Hancock Family Health Center – Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Parks attended Michigan State University, where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Medicine as well as her Doctor of Medicine Degree. She then went on to complete her residency at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. Parks has a passion for Federally Qualified Health Centers which stems from her first job at Public Health Service in Detroit, Michigan.

“As a member of Public Health Service, I served in an underserved area of Detroit,” said Parks, “As a child, I remember the long lines and long waits to receive health care. It was good to be able to make a dent in servicing the communities that needed care.”

Parks hopes to continue serving those who struggle to receive the care they need. She says, “My goal is quality care, regardless of the ability to pay. I enjoy working with women of all ages. I like working with teens, providing them education and assisting them in making decisions.”

Parks also looks forward to enjoying a slower-paced lifestyle in the Upper Peninsula. She hopes to get back to her favorite hobbies of writing and photography. Joining Dr. Parks are her husband of 33 years, Gregory Whittler, and their Goldendoodle, Lucy.

Hancock Family Health Center – OB/GYN is located inside UP Health System – Portage, 500 Campus Drive, Hancock, Michigan. To schedule a visit with Sheryl Parks, MD, call (906) 483-1050.
