What's Up, Doc? is a weekly health segment on WROK sponsored by MercyHealth. Each week they highlight a different doctor/healthcare professional to come on our show and talk to us about their specialty. It has turned into one of our favorite segments. All of our doctors have exhibited a "human" side that people don't always get to see with their physicians. We encourage you to check out some of our past episodes here. We've done about 30 of these segments highlighting everything from Lyme disease to hernia repair to finding a health care plan and everything else in between. We've learned a lot and hope you can too.

Therapist Renee Voltz joined the program this week on What's Up, Doc? to talk about pediatric therapy. It's always an educational experience for us on What's up, Doc? but it's especially so for me whenever we have pediatric specialists on the show. As someone with no children of his own, the whole baby procedure and kid doctor phase was not a part of my life. That's one of the reasons I love it so much when we have these specialists for patients under 13 so much. I get to learn a lot and that's what we all should be trying to do these days.

Renee Voltz is obviously a wonderful therapist that loves kids. She has 5 of her own, which is the second pediatric specialist in a row with at least 4 kids. There must be something about the profession.

We thank Renee Voltz for her time a look forward to our next guest on What's Up, Doc? A new episode of What's Up, Doc? can be heard every Thursday morning at 8:35 on 1440 WROK.
