Paso Canoas to Volcan by public transport?

I'm living in Costa Rica at the moment, and will be doing a visa run to Panama. I've been to Boquete before, and although I had a great time there, I thought that this time I'd head up to Volcan.

After I get through Customs/Immigration, I know that there are little minibuses frequently leaving for David. Is my best bet to catch one of these as far as La Concepción, and then catch another minibus towards Volcan? Or is there a better way to do it? And how frequent are the buses between La Concepción and Volcan? How long would you estimate it takes from the Panama side of Paso Canoas to Volcan - about 3 hours?

Thanks

Actually there is another crossing very close to Vocan and I assume you can easily get to it on the Costa Rican side. It is called Rio Serano and you can pass through it and then take an hour bus into Volcan. Rio Serano is an ultra mellow border crossing so make sure you dont miss it when you cross over.
