MAITLAND, Fla., – ADCS Clinics (“ADCS”) announced it has completed the acquisition of Dermatology Associates of Northern Michigan in Petoskey, Michigan.
Dermatology Associates of Northern Michigan, founded in April 1999 by Drs. Robert Charles and Roger Potter, after the closure of Burns Clinic Medical Center in Petoskey Michigan. The Clinic had been in continuous operation for more than 50 years, providing multispecialty care from 150 physicians prior to its closure.
Dr. Murray Cotter took over the practice in 2009 upon the retirement of Drs. Charles and Potter. The practice has therefore been serving the community for almost 50 years, spanning three generations of dermatologists.
