Easy to talk to - knowledgeable, comforting

I saw Dr. Voelkel because my regular doctor was on vacation. I found Dr. Voelkel to be extremely easy to talk to, very down to earth, and never made me feel that he was rushed or that I only had a few minutes to talk to him. He gave me good information, was straight-forward, explained everything I needed explained and I left having a good feeling about him and my own situation.
