McLaren Northern Michigan MedCenter
Urgent Care / Family Practice

The MedCenter in Petoskey is experiencing a disruption in care due to the current industry-wide staffing shortage. Although they are open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and weekends from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., they are currently only able to accommodate unscheduled/walk-in visits the first hour of the morning. We apologize for the limited access this causes. McLaren team members from our network of care offices across the state are helping fill the immediate need. We ask for your understanding and patience as we diligently work to restore full staffing and services.

Virtual visits are available without an appointment by going to www.mclaren.org/now. Through this app, a visit is $49. You’ll see a board-certified physician using secure video anytime, anywhere on your smartphone, tablet, or computer with a webcam. McLarenNow virtual visits are available for urgent care situations such as coronavirus screening, cold, flu, minor injuries, illness or skin conditions.

For those that would like to speak to a member of our patient experience team, please email mmgfeedback@mclaren.org.
