I saw Dr. Volfson for sleep and eating disorder. She’s the most caring doctor I have ever met. What she prescribed has worked. My son was in the mental health system for twenty years and I think he would be alive today if we had taken him to her.

About Me

Care Philosophy
  • Being a director of the Integrated Care program at the Philadelphia VA I work closely with primary care providers to use medications more effectively and minimize poly-pharmacy. My background in Internal Medicine helps me to approach psychiatric and medical issues more effectively, even though I am not practicing Internal Medicine any more. I am very interested in gender differences in mental illness and substance use and consider hormonal influence on mood, anxiety and general well being.
