A Letter to Our Patients
As healthcare providers it’s not often we are afforded the opportunity to fully express how much your patronage means to us. There is the obvious that with you we are able to keep the doors open and lights on, however because of you we are able to do so much more! We have many reasons we can turn to you and say Thank You each day, but looking back we wanted to take the time and express our gratitude for the following:
Expanding our research efforts. The field of medicine grows exponentially each year. As our mission is to offer the most effective treatment options available, we strive to expand our research efforts continuously. With your help we were able to increase the number of clinical trials and research studies available at DLCC in 2014 and look forward to continuing this progression in 2015. These studies and trials help us to observe possible new treatments for conditions such as acne, psoriasis and basal cell carcinoma as well as study the effectiveness of current medications. You can learn more about our current study opportunities here.
Giving back to our community. Throughout 2014 we were able to give back to our community by sponsoring local events such as the Race The Landing Series, participating in the community-wide skin cancer screening with Roper St. Francis in May, donating to a variety of local charities and opening our doors as a teaching facility to medical students, residents, shadowing students and many others interested in a career in dermatology and skincare. At our 9th annual glow night we collected $1,500 in donations for The Healing Hands Scholarship, awarded to an aspiring medical practitioner from the Lowcountry. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend as well as those who donated to this very important cause. We look forward to not only continuing, but expanding, our community involvement throughout this upcoming year.
Staying true to our mission. This is one of the things for which we are most grateful to you. In this field it isn’t uncommon for competition to run rampant when dealing with cosmetic services. The pressures to be the first or offer the latest specials can lead to some straying away from their key mission. Because of you we are able to stay true to our mission as skin care providers. We don’t need to give in to gimmicks or flash and pizazz, as we are able to offer ourselves and our services in our own distinct ways that are true to our mission and our brand. This is one of the greatest gifts you could ever offer to us and we are so very thankful!
This July Dermatology and Laser Center of Charleston marks it’s 10th year in business! We could not be more thrilled to be hitting this milestone and can only hope to continue our efforts in providing you the highest quality treatment options in our caring and compassionate environment. Please know you can always reach out to our office for any reason and at any time by phone or email.
Thank you all again for supporting DLCC in 2014. We look forward to serving you and your skin care needs throughout the year!
