What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Sassmannshausen, MD

I had been going to them for over 10 years and never missed an appointment. Unfortunately I did miss an appointment for botox in November and they charged me 700 dollars. I do not know how they estimated 700 dollars since they did not know what area or how much botox would be needed. No doubt it is my fault they lost revenue and could have used the time for someone else but 700 dollars is a shockingly high amount for a first missed appointment. I would never recommend them.

My daughter needed to be treated for a spreading rash. At the time my insurance was catastrophic coverage, so I was going to have to pay $300 upfront. That was not in my budget. To avoid a canceled appt, he offered to meet with us for $60. He prescribed a topical medication that cost $362 after already knowing I couldn't afford a $300 appointment. I will never go to this office again. $60 was more important than a returning patient. Fort Wayne Dermatology is awesome!

Had one small procedure done by this doctor and was surprised at how impersonal and rushed he was. He came in room while nurses were just beginning to prep me and jumped straight into procedure. Even the nurses seemed taken aback. He was out the door just as quickly. I would never have another procedure done with him. Regular appointments were usually more friendly and inviting. I feel confident in his treatment for my children's skin issues and he has a good personality for them.

Dr. Sass is such a conscientious doc. He is kind, humorous, and extremely professional/competent. I have very sensitive skin and suffer from eczema. Thank you, Amy

He pushes the product that are sold in an adjacent business, reportedly owned by his wife. Very expensive.
