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.

When Mark E. Smith was born with severe cerebral palsy, the doctors said that he was an absolute vegetable, void of cognitive skills. On top of that, Mark’s family was fragmented by alcoholism, divorce, incarceration, and suicide. But, Mark defied all odds, turning facing the insurmountable into accomplishing the impossible – transforming his life from the trials of a severely disabled child with little to the triumphs of an adult fulfilling dreams.
Today, Mark is among the most recognized disability figures in the world. His accomplishments are unmistakable as an icon within the wheelchair industry and serving as a General Manager for Pride Mobility Products Corporation and Quantum Rehab. Mark is the author of five books and countless magazine articles and columns, is the founding editor of WheelchairJunkie.com, a leading website and blog for those with disabilities, is a lecturer and sought-after inspirational speaker, and sits on numerous community-related boards. Of course, Mark’s most important role is that of a husband and father of his two daughters, living in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
See, when Mark speaks of shifting one’s life from merely surviving to truly thriving, he doesn’t just talk about it – he’s lived it.
