Excellent MD!! Highly professional, highly trained, caring, compassionate, gives options, listens and understands. He and this group are busy because they are the BEST! I would recommend Dr. Voelkel and his staff to all.

The staff are difficult if not impossible to get on the phone. The Dr. is not friendly and speeds you through the consult as fast as possible. He only does local anesthesia colonoscopies on Thurs afternoon so you have to fast for almost 24 hours. BCBS won't pay for a fully monitored anesthesia colonoscopy and he is in cahoots with the hospital to get more money out of you.
Rushed and quite condescending. Please stop referring to females as my dear and no dear, that's ....; how about using a professional, yet still appropriate, yes, ma'am,? Patronizing your patients does not garner trust, my dear.... Your patient load is too high- take a bit more time- you are noticably distracted, and quite dismissive.

Aug 26, 2015, I underwent a colonoscopy performed by John-Paul Voelkel, MD. I was briefly awakened from sedation & told he'd punctured my colon & was being taken to Crestwood Hospital, Huntsville, AL, for a small laparoscopic repair. Awoke in ICU after 5 hours surgery, minus the first HALF A FOOT of my colon & newly installed colostomy bag w/surgical ostomy, PLUS a pulmonary embolism. Not enough space for details. My medical bills exceed $228,000 to date. NO, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR.

I am young elderly, and had my second colonoscopy administered by dr. Voelkel. I have a history of bad anestistis recovery due COPD. Everything with my first and second colonoscopy was completed successfully, and I recommend dr. Voelkel, and crest wood hospital in regards to any digestive disorders, or digestive preventive care.
