I had to see him more often than expected following the surgery because of complications he could not have anticipated. He is professional and knowledgeable. He stepped in and educated other members of my medical team when necessary. There was never any additional cost to me.

Dr Volz performed a lumpectomy & sentinel lymph node biopsy in March, 2018. I am very satisfied with my experience with Dr Volz & his entire team. Also, Barb is a great asset & sounding board for any of his breadt patients.

Dr. Volz is most definitely the surgeon to see around here! He is genuinely caring and listens to your concerns. He removed my gallbladder and I was back to work feeling great within one week! I wouldn't choose any other surgeon in town!

DR. VOLZ Made me feel very comfortable & at ease in a very scary time. Taking time to listen, answer questions & explain the process. My scar has healed beautifully. I really feel I had it easy with a lumpectomy & radiation. Dr. Volz, Barb & the whole TEAM were wonderful & a big part of my success. Thank you!
