ALLENTOWN and CENTER VALLEY, Pa. (Sept. 20, 2023) — Good Shepherd Rehabilitation recently welcomed Jeffery W. Williams, MD, and Benjamin R. Scoblionko, MD, as new physicians to the nationally recognized rehabilitation network.
Dr. Williams serves as medical director of the stroke program at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital in Center Valley, Pa. He is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and his areas of focus are electromyography (EMG), stroke, musculoskeletal medicine and physiatry.
Before joining Good Shepherd, Dr. Williams served as section chief of physical medicine and rehabilitation at UPMC/Susquehanna Health in Williamsport, Pa. Dr. Williams earned his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine and completed his residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Williams’ hobbies include weightlifting, running, traveling, spending time with family and freshwater aquarium fish. Dr. Williams is fluent in English and Spanish.
Dr. Williams’ personal interests ultimately led him to specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation, also known as physiatry.
“My focus in life has always been on wellness and healing, particularly through exercise — similar to rehabilitation,” Dr. Williams said.
Dr. Scoblionko is an outpatient physiatrist based out of Good Shepherd’s Hyland Center for Health & Technology, 850 S. 5th St., Allentown, PA 18103.

Dr. Scoblionko earned his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation, followed by fellowship in spasticity management, at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Scoblionko’s hobbies include playing soccer, running and hiking with his wife and dog.
Dr. Scoblionko said he is inspired by being there for people during a challenging time and witnessing them reach goals.
“I value the responsibility and challenge of supporting people during some of the most difficult, stressful and overwhelming times in their lives and privilege of sharing in the best,” Dr. Scoblionko said. “I love to watch a patient realize a goal is achievable and exceed it.”
