Each year, more than 140,000 Americans die from strokes. In fact, stroke is the third leading cause of death in both America and Pennsylvania.  That’s why it is essential to recognize the warning signs of a stroke, which include sudden weakness of the face, arm or leg, sudden dizziness or even severe headaches.

Allied Services’ Dr. Michael Wolk will join a panel of experts on WVIA’s “Call the Doctor” on Wednesday, February 15th at 7:00 p.m. to discuss issues relating to stroke care.

Dr. Wolk is Medical Director of Allied Services Scranton Rehab Hospital (ASRH). He is also the Medical Director of the Spinal Cord Injury Unit at ASRH and Medical Director of the Stroke Rehabilitation Unit and Outpatient Services. A graduate of the University of Scranton and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Dr. Wolk is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with a Sub-specialty in Spinal Cord Injury Medicine.

The show will also be broadcast on WVIA on February 16th at 10:00 p.m., February 17th at 3:00 p.m., February 19th at 4:00 p.m., March 1stat 7:00 p.m., March 2nd at 10:00 p.m. and March 3rd at 3:00 p.m.
