Dr. Stephen Volk has the following 3 specialties
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Dr Volk is a special man who has the up most respect. He was the one who diagnosed me with lymphoma. It was determined that I only had 2 wks left. He reco.mened that I follow up with Dr Withold Rybaka. I had a stem cell transplant. That was 9 yrs ago. I lived my 9 yrs in a nursing home for 2& a half years in a nursing home and on Hospice. Then I signed myself out of nursing home and off of Hospice got an apartment with my girls,and the hardest not having my son back. In between those years I had developed an endocrine tumor. Now 9 yrs later I am battling with stage 4 lung cancer. Had 2 chemo sessions whish didn't work out due to me having so much chemo 9 yrs ago my body could not withstand it any more. Went blind in my right eye. I was then again put on Hospice. Now as my nurse had to come tell me that the one Dr her name is Dr Kale is taking me. Off of Hospice due to me not declining quick enough. If u really look at it I'm not dieing quick enough for them. I am planning coming back to P.A. I hope that I could come back and hopefully follow up with Dr Volk and Dr Rybka. They t the best Dr's I had God bless them. Thank u guys
