I used to live in Warren and now live in Interlochen. I've heard so much good about Dr. DiNick, that when my time comes, I'll travel downstate to him for my surgery. He has the experience with rapid weight loss patients and from what I've heard, does an absolutely wonderful job. Jody from TC just had hers done this year and seems to be very happy. You could pm her and see what she has to say too. I agree with BoxerMom, it's worth the 45 minute drive to Ypsi.
It is what it is.
If He brings you to it, He'll bring you through it...
