Welcome Dr. Ivey

McLaren Northern Michigan is pleased to announce that Mary Ivey, MD, has joined the medical staff at McLaren Northern Michigan. Dr. Ivey will practice with Bay View OB/GYN in Petoskey.

Dr. Ivey’s love for science began at a young age. After completing her undergraduate degree in Chemistry at Troy State University in 1988, she pursued her Master’s degree in Biochemistry at Auburn University, graduating in 1991. Her fascination for medicine continued as she did research in biochemistry at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine for four years before beginning medical school in 1995. Having a passion for women’s health and obstetrics, she completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology from Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2003.

Mary Ivey, MD

Her first position as an OB/GYN was at Northern Michigan Hospital. It was here in Petoskey that she fell in love with northern Michigan and has made it her home for the last 14 years. She practiced in Manistee, Michigan for three years before settling in Charlevoix for the past 10 years. 

“It is my desire to establish a relationship with each patient, to help them with every stage of their life and to walk with them through their journey to becoming a healthier individual,” stated Dr. Ivey. “I feel blessed to be able to do what I love to do every day. It is amazing to have been a part of the lives of so many patients and thousands of births, each and every one a miracle!”

Dr. Ivey has extensive training and years of experience in minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery for abnormal uterine bleeding and urinary incontinence, as well as a passion for high and low risk obstetrics and patient education. “I want to make sure my patients understand their conditions, so together as a team we can choose the direction of their care,” added Dr. Ivey. 

Dr. Ivey is an avid runner, a self-proclaimed amateur photographer, and a DIY home remodeler.
