Endocrinology Services in Petoskey

Michael Valitutto, DOMcLaren Northern Michigan is pleased to announce that Endocrinology services will begin on July 1, 2017 in Petoskey.

Michael Valitutto, DO, will provide specialized care to patients with diabetes, hormone disorders, metabolism imbalance, and additional endocrine conditions.

With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Valitutto brings shared visit appointments to northern Michigan. A shared visit gathers patients with the same diagnosis in a group education session taught by the provider followed by individual examinations. When patients arrive there is an initial medical history with a medical assistant followed by a group education class. Once the session is over, patients will receive individual medical appointments with the specialist. Although patients are encouraged to attend a shared visit, standard medical appointments are available.

“Shared visits are a new and innovative way to provide the best patient care and support to those suffering from endocrine conditions and enhance the patient’s ability to self-manage,” stated Dr. Valitutto. “Patients have the opportunity to receive education on diet and medications but most importantly, receive support from others who experience similar challenges.”

Dr. Valitutto received his medical degree from the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, IA and completed his residency at St. John’s Hospital in Detroit Michigan. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine.

The McLaren Northern Michigan Endocrinology office is in the Medical Office Building, 560 West Mitchell Street, Suite 560 in Petoskey.
