New doctor joins Glencoe clinic

Dr. Michael McCarthy, a family practice physician, has joined the staff of Glencoe Medical Clinic.

Glencoe Medical Clinic also operates Lester Prairie Medical Clinic and Winsted Medical Clinic.

Originally from the Arlington-Green Isle area, McCarthy graduated from the University of Minnesota School of Medicine and completed his residency through the University of Minnesota Family Practice Clinic.

After practicing at the Arlington Clinic from 1984-1994, he practiced occupational medicine at the Mankato Clinic in Mankato, Minn.; also serving as the medical director of Immanuel St. Joseph's Hospital Chemical Dependency Unit in Mankato.

"While practicing occupational medicine, I came to realize how much I missed general family practice medicine and the wide age range of patients," McCarthy said. He is also excited about the opportunity to work with chemical dependency patients in Waverly twice a month.

In his spare time he likes to write, both short stories and poems. He has had three short stories and one poem published in various medical journals.

McCarthy will succeed George Vuckovic, P.A., who is moving on to another practice opportunity.

"We are pleased to have Dr. McCarthy join the Glencoe medical community. He will be a fine addition to our staff," Tom Bettendorf, Glencoe Medical Clinic adminstrator noted. "We also wish George the best of luck in his new endeavor," he added.
