    Dr. Dennis Vollman’s passion for how things work led him to a lifelong career in radiology. Upon completing dual bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and applied mathematics/computer science, a friend convinced him to take a class in anatomy and physiology, leading to an interest in medicine.

    While attending Michigan State University (and considering a career as an internist), his future wife introduced him to radiology. That specialty was the perfect combination of biology and engineering – a way peer into how the body works.

    Dr. Vollman’s career in radiology was fruitful. His work tenure includes time at Garden City Hospital, Oakwood Hospitals, Riverside Radiology Specialists, and Southgate Radiology. He acquired and ran Southgate Radiology in 2008, before selling it to RMI in 2018.

    Multiple appointments and honors have hallmarked his career, including induction as a fellow in American Osteopathic College of Radiology (AOCR) in 2004, working as department head or chief resident at many of hospitals he worked at, and serving 10 years on the American Osteopathic Board of Radiology (AOBR) – two of those years as its chairman.

    He is especially proud of serving 25 years as a radiology residency director. He sees that work with the 50 doctors he mentored as his legacy.

    In his off hours, Dr. Vollman pursues a love of golf, working hard to get in 100-plus rounds each year.

    He sees RMI’s approach to outpatient radiology reflecting the values he promoted at Southgate Radiology — an emphasis on personal service to patients and working as the “doctor’s doctor” for referring physicians. The future looks bright, he adds, with ever-evolving technology such as artificial intelligence to assist – but not replace – the work of radiologists.
