This facility is made specifically for bariatric patients. The chairs are bigger, the parking spaces are bigger, and the staff was incredible (some of which had even had the surgery themselves). When I would put my call light on, it did not even take a full 60 seconds for someone to come answer it. I also had my own private room which made a world of difference. My family was able to come visit and there were plenty of chairs for them to sit in. The staff was fun and on top of it. I could not imagine a better experience.

Dr. Poplawski (aka Dr. Pop) was wonderful! He really cares about his patients overall well being. I am nothing if pleased with my entire experience with him.

Dr. Taylor is fantastic. I would recommend him to anyone considering rny. He is so nice and straight forward. No BS. It doesn't hurt that he is really cute too! : ) But, he is also competent and his bedside manor is great. I have nothing negative to say about him or the hospital. Everyone I came in contact with was kind and knowledgeable. Great experience!

Dr.Pop!!

What an awesome man! I felt very comfortable knowing that he would be the one doing my surgery. He is very honest which makes you feel that you can trust him to tell you exactly what he thinks. I had my surgery performed May 1st 2012, Dr.Pop did a GREAT job! I was in very low amount of pain after surgery and went home without in need of using pain medication. I have had no complications & thank Dr.Pop for helping me be able to change my life! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This man was egotistical. He became offended when I asked questions related to his qualifications. His assistant just laughed in my face and said "do you know who you are talking to". As if I should be bowing while speaking to him or something. I felt like the fat girl being mocked by classmates all over again in his presence. I would not recommend him to anyone.

It has been some time since my surgery with Dr. DiNick. I had a tummy tuck, breast implants, and liposuction of my saddle bags. The tummy tuck went well and the implants are just o.k. Not great, but I can live with that. The problem is the disfiguring liposuction. I knew going in that lipo could cause a bumpy outcome. I understood that. The problem is that he took out too much tissue (another Dr. told me this) on my left hip. It is sunken in and is obvious in clothes. He also did some lipo on my inner right thigh and that is sunk in too. Awful and I hate looking at myself. As if I didn't look bad enough. I did have fat transfers with him. THAT I PAID FOR. And it still didn't work. He never took responsibility for what he did. His assistant, Robbie (i think) was supposed to call me when his new office in Novi was up and running. NEVER HEARD FROM THEM. I wish everyday that I never had that liposuction. I know it's my fault for doing it, but he should have tried harder to fix WHAT HE DID. TAKING OUT TOO MUCH TISSUE IS HIS FAULT. He obviously does not know a thing about lipo and if anyone is considering having him do it, GO TO SOMEONE ELSE. And yes, I exercise 5 days a week. I now know better, but it's too late.

I knew the minute I met Dr Taylor that he was a genuinely caring person. He answered all my questions without making me feel silly. I can trust him. I had my surgery a year ago and would do it again in a heartbeat!

I don't think words can truly express my experience that I had with Dr. DiNick. I chose him as my plastic surgeon because his specialty is post-op gastric bypass patients and I figured he knew what he was doing. WRONG!!! The short version of a very long unfinished story is that my simple 3-4 breast aug with him turned into an 10 hour marathon surgery, which ultimately failed and had to be redone by a different plastic surgeon. My tummy tuck has also been a nightmare. For over a year now I have been walking around with an extremely distended abdomen. When I initially saw Dr. DiNick for follow-up regarding this issue his response was, "wow, I don't know what's wrong with you, maybe you have ascites...you ruined my work." I could go on and on about the many things wrong with his statement, but I will just caution those who plan to use Dr. DiNick as a plastic surgeon. Just don't.

Do your research!! This is not the only plastic surgeon in the state of MI, but if you are dead set on using him, make sure you demand that he draws a blood level BEFORE your surgery and also AFTER your surgery(s). If you are severly anemic going into a surgery, you will be even more anemic coming out. As a gastric bypass patient, "doubling up" on your iron pills a week before surgery isn't going to do you any good. Demand an infusion. Ladies, if you are a gym rat like I was, make sure you ask about textured implants with a mesh anchor versus the smooth implants Dr. DiNick uses. It may save you a failed breast aug if you use the proper implants from the start.

My initial perception of Dr. Taylor was that this man tells it how it is. I had been to other seminars and met other surgeons that just did not look me in the eye. Dr. Taylor explained each proceedure, in detail, and looked me in the eye. Which, in my opinion, was a deal clencher for me. From that moment, he had my trust. I knew from the get go of my research that I wanted to go through Barix Clinics because this is all they do. I knew that if a problem came up, they would know exactly how to fix it and would have everything they needed right there. When I found out Dr Taylor opened an office in Saginaw, it was like the clouds parting and putting a gift of life on my lap. Surgery is 1/23/2012.. I will post more once I have more to say.
