Dr. Voelzke's Patient Care Philosophy:
The whole office experience is important for our cancer patients. People come into our office often scared, and it is the caring, nurturing staff that makes such a difference. I am fortunate to be working at such a place as Virginia Cancer Institute.~
What Patients say about Dr. Voelzke:
He is so gentle and caring with his patients. My family loves him.~
Dr. Voelzke is known for his devotion to his patients and his enthusiasm for his alma mater. Acutely aware that patients are often frightened when they first arrive at VCI, he brings a gentle touch to his treatment, ensuring his patients feel comfortable and informed throughout. Perhaps he owes some of his compassion to a chance meeting with Mother Teresa herself while volunteering in Calcutta, India, an experience for which he is quite grateful.
Dr. Voelzke is a Wake Forest fan for good reason. Before completing his MD at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX, Dr. Voelzke earned his BA at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. He returned to Winston-Salem to complete both his residency in internal medicine and his fellowship in hematology/oncology at the School of Medicine and North Carolina Baptist Hospital. He is a member of the American Association of Clinical Oncology and the American Society of Hematology and has been a physician with Virginia Cancer Institute since 2007. Dr. Voelzke sees and treats all forms of cancer. His particular research interests include gastrointestinal and genitourinary cancers.
When he’s out of the office, you can find Dr. Voelzke on the soccer fields watching his kids who play for the Richmond Kickers. He also enjoys playing tennis, working on home construction projects, and, of course, attending Wake Forest University sporting events whenever he can. He makes his home in Richmond with his family.
