Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I love this place!
I have been seen in this office twice now. From the moment you walk in until you leave, you are treated with compassion and down to earth care. Dr. Volz is the nicest doctor I have ever met. It’s not easy to be funny and maintain professionalism but he pulls it off every time. Dr.Volz and his LPN Sophia are living proof that bedside manner isn’t dead. I couldn’t ask for a better visit.

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!
