Dr. Sassmannshausen is board-certified in Dermatology practicing medicine since July, 1993, after earning his medical degree at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana. His residency training included Internal Medicine at Indiana University Medical Center and Dermatology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
Dr. Sassmannshausen is a Fort Wayne native. Growing up, he caddied at a golf course near his office. He now has patients that he once “looped” for and enjoys talking about those good ol’ days at The Ridge. While golf was a big part of his life as he grew up, even allowing him to attend college on an Evan’s Scholarship, he has little time to spend on the links. Time is spent with his wife and three children. The doctor has been taking guitar lessons for the last several years and could be mediocre if he only practiced a little. The guitar can be a wonderful stress reliever after a busy day in the office. In the summer, if not caring for the flowerbeds around the house, Dr. Sassmannshausen enjoys fishing and cooking.
Having been trained and board- certified as an Internist, Dr. Sassmannshausen is very confident in treating all skin disease. He not only thrives on treating the everyday wart and acne, but looks forward to the challenging cases which have run out of treatment options, need a diagnosis or require very sophisticated therapies.
