Shades of Pink Fundraiser April 30, 2016


Join Oakland Medical Center in supporting the Shades of Pink Foundation for A Walk at the Detroit Zoo on April 30, 2016 to raise funds for breast cancer patients and their families.

Many women who are diagnosed with breast cancer have extra financial burdens placed on them during treatment and recovery. Common issues are insurance payments, food, transportation, childcare, and other essentials of daily life.

Shades of Pink Foundation offers temporary financial assistance during their time in need. The mission of the Shades of Pink Foundation is even more important as people have lost their jobs or can only hold minimal jobs during treatment and recovery.

Please join Oakland Medical Center in support of the Shades of Pink Foundation on this wonderful and inspiring day at the Zoo – April 30, 2016!

Colon Cancer Awareness

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Oakland Medical Center wants you know about colon cancer, especially if you are over the age of 50, since the risk of this type of cancer rises as one ages. According to the National Institutes of Health, people are more likely to get colon or rectal cancers if they have colorectal polyps, a family history of colorectal cancer, ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, eat a diet high in fat, or smoke.

The NIH advises that symptoms of colorectal cancer include

  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • A feeling that your bowel does not empty completely
  • Blood (either bright red or very dark) in your stool
  • Stools that are narrower than usual
  • Frequent gas pains or cramps, or feeling full or bloated
  • Weight loss with no known reason
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea or vomiting

Screening tests are important for everyone over age 50. Check for blood in the stool and talk with your doctor about getting a colonoscopy.

Your Oakland Medical Center doctor can answer your questions about types of colon cancer and advise you on risks involved because of family history or lifestyle choices.

Patient Testimonials

“I have been coming to Oakland Medical Center for years. I have multiple health issues and Dr. Sandberg is very dedicated to helping me feel better and making sure I receive the care I need. I have recommended Dr. Sandberg to many friends and family members who are now patients and have had the same great experience that I did.”
Miguel R.

“Dr. Sandberg and his staff correctly diagnosed a heart valve problem during a routine physical. It probably prevented a heart attack and may have saved my life.”
Robert M.

“I have been seeing Dr. Sandberg for 30+ years and have seen his practice grow. The reason is – he takes time to listen and not rush through an exam. He knows the experts and works with other doctors to back up his treatments for me. The friendly, wonderful nurses and front desk staff are very helpful.”
Paul D.

“Your staff were highly efficient and cordial in conducting my medical diagnostic tests and obtaining my medical history data with priority for my comfort. They expedited the tasks quickly and efficiently. The receptionist’s ability to multi-taskĀ  – handling multiple phone calls and helping me with administrative needs on my first day as a patient – was courteous and respectful of my time.”
Steve S.

“Staff is always pleasant and helpful. I would always recommend this office and Dr. Sandberg.”
Margaret M.

“Personable, affable, sincere, authentic, real, compassionate!”
Yolana G.

“When my father’s specialist did not admit him to the hospital, Dr. Jay saw the need and had him admitted just in time with an infected gall bladder. His ability to listen and his clarity in giving instructions to patients is a gift.”
