The address is 5827 Oakland Drive, which is about ½ mile south of Interstate 94, or two blocks north of Milham Avenue. We’re on the east side of the street, next to the Berkshire Hathaway building (formerly Prudential).
The building is a sort of butterscotch color — it’s unusual, you can’t miss it — with dark-brown trim and the name “Jeffrey L. Schimp, D.D.S.” above the outside entrance. The directory sign for Oakland Drive Professional Park, framed in aqua blue, is right in front of us.
(Handicapped parking: Our “blue badge” parking spot for the disabled is at the far end of the parking lot, near the northwest corner of the building, past the other spaces. This is where you’ll find the low spot for getting onto the sidewalk.)
Get onto Oakland Drive heading south. (From I-94, Oakland Drive is Exit 75.) The office is about half a mile south of I-94, on the left.
Get onto Oakland Drive heading north. A block or so north of Milham Avenue, look for us on the right.
2 buses serve us:
From Kalamazoo, ride the number 4 (Oakland) bus, which serves a stop at the corner of Oakland Drive and Rosewood Avenue, across the street from us. (Not to be confused with the Rosewood apartments off of 12th Street.) After crossing to the south side of I-94, the bus passes Rosewood Avenue shortly after Kalamazoo First Assembly of God, and before Milham Meadows.
Be careful when crossing Oakland Drive. The nearest marked crosswalk is to the south at Milham Avenue.
From Portage, ride the number 26 (West Centre) bus. Get off near Oakland Drive and Milham Avenue (there’s a stop at Milham Meadows Apartments or you can ask to be let off at the corner itself). Cross to the northeast side of the intersection (the Zhang Financial building is there) and walk north on Oakland for a block or so.
