Dr. Volk saved my life 33 years ago and I can’t imagine having anyone else as my hematologist. My whole family sees Dr. Volk and has for years. He is very kind, professional, and always asks about the rest of the family. Dr. Volk diagnosed my husband when he got cancer and sent him to Mayo. Now that we are done with Mayo, Dr. Volk agreed to take my husband back as a patient. And we are so glad!

I have been seeing Dr. VOLK and staff for several years. I find him and his staff go beyond just checking blood. He has a social worker on staff also who is very knowledgable and went above and beyond to help me with 'issues'. I would highly recommend Dr. Volk and his very pleasant and very qualified staff.

I've been a patient of Dr. Volk's for 11 years. During our association, I have come to trust him completely and appreciate his patience, honesty and good counsel. He is a good listener and takes an interest in all aspects of my health, having made several helpful referrals in response to conditions outside his specialty. Arizona Oncology is a great practice and Dr. Volk is a great practitioner!

We saw Jessica on this visit. She is very competent in all areas. Her patient manner is outstanding, making me feel completely at ease. She explained procedures and options clearly so a lay person could understand. She asked if we had questions, responded, and scheduled our next visit. She is a good one.

This appointment was with Lindsay and not Dr Volk. Efficient and personable. Discussed all situations, received required medication, completed in short timeframe. Not much about this but would recommend Dr Volk to anyone, complete trust in his opinions.

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.
