NorthPointe & Berkley Senior Center Warmed Up Neighbors!
New Hats, Scarves, Gloves, and Socks Collection
For the 3rd year in a row NorthPointe Foot & Ankle joined the Berkley Senior Center and the Berkley Red Hats in collecting new gloves, hats, scarves and socks for all ages. The gifts were delivered to those less fortunate in the community before Christmas, including students in the Berkley School District. Dozens of hats, gloves, scarves and socks were collected during the drive hosted November 26 – December 14. Approximately 100 people received the donations. For more information look at our January 2013 Newsletter, visit our News/Events page or give our office a call.

Wii bowling is one of the favorite activities at the Berkley Senior Center! Each Tuesday, the "league" competes for bragging rights and a few snacks. Over the years, we've supported the Senior Center with an additional screen to host bowling challenges, games, a sound system and food for holiday gatherings. The 32" flat screen was set up at the end of October and Wii Bowling now continues in full swing! Other games and movies are also enjoyed by the seniors! Visit our News/Events page for more information.
The bowlers enjoy their Tuesday Wii Bowling on a new TV donated by NorthPointe Foot & Ankle!

UPDATE - Our Office Can Now Test for Circulation Problems! It's Quick and Painless!
Do you experience leg pain while walking or exercising? This could be a sign of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). The most common symptom of PAD is a painful muscle cramping in the hips, thighs or calves when walking, climbing stairs, or exercising. The pain of PAD usually goes away when you stop exercising, although this may take a few minutes.
NorthPointe is now home to the PADnet machine which provides a pain-free screening for PAD. The test is run in the office and the results are read by our own experts. The results are then confidentially transferred over the Internet to a group of cardiologists for their review.
PAD is treatable! Make an appointment today at NorthPointe to get screened for PAD. It only takes 15 - 20 minutes.
