Specialties

Dr. Suncica F Volkov has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

So far so good

I've been seeing Dr. Volkov for about 2 years. My only major complaint is the lack of available appointments and the wait time but, that having been said, even if she's behind, she never rushes through the appointment.

Seemed to be knowledgable about pain management

Once I began to question her about changing my medication to a medication I have tried and didn't work, she told me I was addicted to my current medication (that I had been taking for 1 month!) and became very accusatory.While my hope was to change my medication because I was tired of treating the symptoms of my bursitis, when it is a very curable problem, I did not want to go back to being in complete pain all day. So I said I was unsure about her plan and I asked about surgery or other possible medications but she was done with the conversation. She refused to answer anymore questions and actually told me she was going to call security when I started to cry.
