Welcome to our practice
The team is composed of myself, Dr.Clare Heidtke, board certified OB/GYN, Rachelle Janecki, my medical assistant since 1999, and Maria Tibaldi, our Front Office manager.
I think you will find our gynecology office unique, and appreciate the time and attentive care we spend to care for each and every patient. Since 1983, I have gained the knowledge, experience and now the extra time to provide the personal, full range of high quality office gynecologic care that you would like to have. I am also the only one in Northern Michigan to provide comprehensive treatment of infertility , and am now an affiliate of IVF Michigan Fertility Center. All monitoring of IVF cycles is done locally in Petoskey. Egg retrieval and embryo transfer is done in the state of the art facility in Bloomfield Hills.
You will appreciate the small, friendly, personal nature of a solo practice, a rapidly vanishing way of providing healthcare, in this day and age of increasingly large medical organizations. We are good listeners and willing to explain what's going on in terms that you can understand. Patients find us easy to talk to (and as we know, gynecology involves some pretty personal, often embarrassing issues), and I am known for my honesty and practical approach to treating medical and fertility problems. When major surgery is required,I am happy to make arrangements for you to see the best, most appropriate surgeon for further care.
