Dr. Paul Grossmann, a board-certified general surgeon, has joined the Dallas County Hospital staff and will begin seeing patients Sept. 1, the hospital announced Wednesday.
Dr. Grossman will see patients at the DCH one day a week. The rest of his time will be divided between the Health Trust Physicians Clinic in Winterset two days a week and the Adair County Health System (ACHS) in Greenfield one day a week.
“We have benefitted from Dr. Grossmann’s expertise as a visiting general surgery specialist and are excited to have him join our organization,” said Dallas County Hospital Chief Executive Officer Angela Mortoza. “He is a highly skilled and experienced surgeon with excellent credentials. We appreciate his service over the years and are thrilled that he will be even more accessible to our patients.”
Dr. Grossmann completed his medical degree at the University of Iowa College of Medicine and his general surgery residency at Iowa Methodist’s Central Iowa Health System in Des Moines. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery.
He will perform general surgical procedures, most commonly laparoscopic gallbladder and hernia surgeries, upper and lower endoscopies, such as colonoscopies and others.
“The small-town setting has always been where I’ve wanted to practice, so this was a great opportunity,” said Dr. Grossmann. When not performing surgery, he enjoys boating and spending time with his family at Lake Okoboji.
