Thank you for choosing Petoskey Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists, Northern Michigan’s Premiere ENT practice! Our physicians and staff understand that your time is valuable. In order to make your first visit with us as worthwhile as possible, we ask that you prepare ahead of time by filling out our new patient forms and arriving at least 20 minutes prior to your appointment time.
