BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — What are the signs of a stroke? With May being National Stroke Awareness Month, we spoke with Dr. Rich Ferguson, the chief of neurology at ECMC, Friday morning on Wake Up.

When you suspect a stroke is happening, something to remember is the acronym, F.A.S.T.

  • F – face drooping
  • A – arm weakness
  • S- speech difficulty
  • T – time to call 911

Dr. Rich Ferguson speaks more about this in the video above.
