Patrick Volak, M.D.
Patrick Volak, MD knew from the age of five that he wanted to become a doctor. His passion for science, desire to serve others, and love of challenges made his path to a career in medicine a simple choice. He joined Adult Gastroenterology Associates (AGA) in 1991 and co-founded Tulsa Endoscopy Center with three fellow physicians in 2003 to offer patients a better, more comfortable, convenient healthcare experience.
With more than 25 years of experience in gastroenterology, Dr. Volak has seen many advances in the GI field that have transformed patient care. The most exciting developments are a cure for hepatitis C, the use of antibodies to treat disease and prevent recurrence, new treatments for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and the use of propofol as an anesthesia to perform endoscopic procedures.
Though Dr. Volak’s expertise in gastroenterology is vast, he takes a special interest in esophageal motility, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and weight loss/nutrition as a treatment for GI symptoms.
When Dr. Volak is not in the office, he still finds time for his community and family. He enjoys coaching the various sports teams of his three kids, playing league tennis, gardening, and woodworking.
