Dr. Volfson's Care Philosophy

Being a director of the Integrated Care program at the Philadelphia VA I work closely with primary care providers to use medications more effectively and minimize poly-pharmacy. My background in Internal Medicine helps me to approach psychiatric and medical issues more effectively, even though I am not practicing Internal Medicine any more. I am very interested in gender differences in mental illness and substance use and consider hormonal influence on mood, anxiety and general well being.
