Thread: Moving to Michigan

  1. #1

    Moving to Michigan

    My husband got a job in Michigan to fly for the Life Flight company out there. We are looking at place in Ann Harbor and just want to know if there are people out there and how they like it. I am dreading the cold winters,but going to enjoy the nice surroundings and GRASS! Living in the desert we don't see much of that... Also, I am going to need to find some doctors out there for my Urology, Pain Specialist, and also just a Primary Doctor. If anyone lives out there, has been out there, or knows any info, I would appreciate some advice..
    Thanks!

    Hello and welcome to the mitten!
    It does get cold in the winter, but our fall, summer, and spring are beautiful.
    I live near Ann Arbor, and can give you at least my reference for a primary spinal cord doctor, a urologist, and a rehab place that I think is excellent. Send me a personal message to get the numbers and names if you are interested. Ann Arbor is a great town, and a lot seems to be accessible. I am in a power chair as I am a cervical four injury level. I don't get out too much into town, but when I have it seemed accessible.

    I assume you mean Ann Arbor, not Ann Harbor. Mary Free Bed hospital has an excellent rehab unit, and I am sure they can provide you some names for physicians.

    I am about an hour away and moved here six years ago and love it. Winters are not that bad because we are in the middle portion of MI, had you moved closer to the west side of the state, it would be different. Where ya moving from?

    Ann Arbor is a good location for getting a good doctor. Michigan has a lot of wheelchair sports you could get involved in. Winter sucks.

    I had thee best urologist in Ann Arbor, but he just retired in June He recommended me to Dr.Clemens at UofM in Ann Arbor. He trained under my retired urologist & specializes in SCI.

    Somebody moving TO Michigan? On purpose? I thought our population was strictly outgoing only.

    I'm guessing you both will fall in LOVE with Michigan. Ann Arbor is an awesome place to live! The changing of the seasons can be spectacular. You"ll understand what I mean when you get here. Winters can be rough...but I love it here!

    Michigan is great!

    Ann Arbor and surrounding is a beautiful area, but houses can be expensive. You might want to also consider Ypsilanti (much lower prices, with a few downsides) as well as Chelsea, Dexter and Saline. Lots of cultural stuff to do and people are friendly. The winter is just very long, but not that much snow.
