Dr Volk is professional and kind. He diagnosed a complicated and rare blood disorder that I have. He also has a dry sense of humor which made me feel better.

Not good. It was so bad the first day of my chemo the nurse and I had a fight. To where she is the reason I stopped my treatments after the third month. Too much to deal with already don't need his staff causing me more grief and uneasiness. ' as for the dr? He had too much on his plate.I never got any tests explained. Nor how far along my cancer was.it's terminal I think my case baffled him . The radiology oncology dr.said it was the first he'd seen like mine and got together with 6 other Dr a to come up with my treatments.

My experience with Dr. Volk has not been positive. I had a DVT in my leg in March of 2015. Dr Volk ordered a suite of lab tests that turned out not to be covered by my insurance because they deemed them not medically necessary. So I was left having to pay a $1200 bill that I had no idea was coming. And the tests revealed nothing helpful. I have called Dr. Volk's office many times trying to resolve this issue and they have been ignoring me, hoping I would go away, I suppose.
