Dr. Assimacopoulos' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Assimacopoulos "I come from a strong family tradition of the practice of medicine. Both my father and my grandfather were physicians, my mother was a nurse and I have two daughters currently pursuing medicine. My grandfather was a past president of the medical society of the city of Thessaloniki in Greece and was the head of the public hospital there as well as a professor of surgery. My father, also a surgeon, was born in Greece in the city of Thessaloniki and emigrated to the U.S. where he completed his education at the University of Minnesota. Besides being born at the University of Minnesota Hospital, I also completed all my education and training there. I had planned on pursuing a career in research and academics but I was drawn to patient care because I enjoyed patient contact and wanted to develop clinical expertise that only comes with direct patient care. I practiced clinical Infectious Disease for many years but, for various reasons, decided to return to Internal (Adult) Medicine and have been very happy with the decision. I am also interested in Telehealth and technological innovations that will allow doctors to provide medical care to our patients anywhere and anytime via electronic means. I believe that we should all try to maintain a balanced and healthy life style, thus, I enjoy travelling with my spouse (who is an excellent and healthy cook) and am interested in Byzantine Chant, camping and Japanese Karate. For those who want to learn, my name is pronounced "Ah-si-ma-CO-puh-luhs" but I usually go by "Dr. A" "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Assimacopoulos "I believe that the doctor is there to help the patient make their quality of life better. Although that means prescribing medications, I do not believe that we should just throw pills at every problem without thinking. The doctor needs to listen and understand what is actually important to the patient. I support open and honest communication between doctor and patient even if we don't agree on everything and I prefer to offer patients advice based on current medical knowledge and guidelines instead of lecturing. I try to maintain a healthy skepticism about standard medical advice and realize that you cannot apply one rule to every patient. I try to advise the patient as to what I would do personally if I were in their situation or as if I were advising my own family member.   It is just a modern day reality that doctors have certain time limitations but I fight against becoming complacent and giving in to leaving things as "good enough."  It is my responsibility to give the patient my best effort every time because they have put their trust in me. I do not have a problem admitting that I do not know everything because it is not possible for one doctor to know everything. I often look things up to be sure and to check for new or updated information that I may not be aware of. Finally, because of my experience as an Infectious Disease consultant I feel that I can offer additional expertise and a broader perspective to my patients. "

I am extremely disappointed and sad to share with other patient this DR is a shame to the medical community. I consider my self an educated consumer with extensive background in health care. If you are looking for a DR with no interest to truly investigate all options to help you then stay away!...more

I was Dr. A's patient in 2006 in the ICU at Avera McKennan in Sioux Falls, SD (I believe this is the same Dr. Assimacopoulos). I was a 21 year old college student at the time and he was able to find the right diagnosis and treatment for my symptoms (Lemierre's syndrome) that saved my life. I...more
