He studied undergrad at the University of South Florida and attended Medical School at the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville Mo. He officially started Markou Medical in June of 1994 after finishing his Family Medicine Residency at Suncoast Hospital in Largo Florida. The practice had been previously started and run by Samuel P.

As an Osteopathic Physician, he offers a holistic approach to his patients focusing on the whole person and not just the disease. In addition to offering cutting-edge treatments for your health, Dr. Markou is one of the first physicians in Florida to offer alternative treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma (growth factor) injections for orthopedic issues such as arthritis, and tendonitis, sparing countless patients from surgery.
Primary Care that puts YOU first
Being able to share with your primary care doctor is key to maintaining your health. That’s why we take more time with our patients than other primary care providers would. And because you’re an individual, our approach isn’t a one-size-fits-all method either. We get to know our patients and treat them like family.
