Alfred Sassler, DO

Call Or Email For Appointment:


Dr. Sassler graduated in the top 5% of his class from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on a Navy Scholarship in 1983.  He completed his residency at Portsmouth Naval Hospital and a Head and Neck Fellowship at University of Michigan.  His 11 year Naval service concluded by training residents back at Portsmouth, while directing the Head and Neck Surgery service and the outpatient clinic.

His civilian career began in 1994, opening a rural Kentucky, general OHNS practice while teaching part-time at University of Cincinnati.  This allowed him to personally care for his more complex patients in an academic center while providing aftercare closer to home.  In 2008 he was recruited to craft an OHNS service for King’s Daughters Medical Center, eventually employing all the Otolaryngologists in Ashland, KY.

In 2011 he returned to Cincinnati as full-time faculty where he continues to teach and practice comprehensive OHNS, and directs a busy ENT Allergy program.  He has published several peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, and presented at regional and national meetings.  He has also served on a wide variety of committees and held leadership roles in most of the hospitals and institutions with which he has been affiliated.  This wide-ranging career affords him a unique point of view on Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery in America today.
