Sarasota’s Leading Dermatology Practice Continues Unprecedented Growth

blog-ODonoghue-Dermatology-Team-Photo

O’Donoghue Dermatology has just added 2 Physician Assistants, several staff members, and numerous treatment options and product offerings to better serve their growing client base.

SARASOTA, Florida (June 7, 2023) – The practice, which started out with just one Physician Assistant and a receptionist, now has 17 employees, including 3 Physician Assistants (Jameson Pawlik, PA-C, MS, Diana Masino, PA-C, and Serena Ferris, PA-C) and it has more than doubled its footprint with a second 2-story building since moving to their Field Road, Sarasota location in 2007.

The state-of-the-art facility boasts a phototherapy room, 9 patient rooms, an on-premise sterilization lab, a relaxation room for patients undergoing Mohs surgery, a laser operating suite, an aesthetician suite, and an expanded reception area where they host educational seminars and, with 4 providers on staff, they can now accommodate their growing customer base within a week of their initial call.

O’Donoghue Dermatology has also added numerous cosmetic procedures including Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Growth, the most advanced lasers for the treatment of brown spots, skin tightening, hair removal, and red vein removal, and the newest neurotoxins and dermal fillers - without ever losing sight of their core mission: the treatment of skin cancer and other diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. The latter is crucial because the rate of melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer, has been on the rise.

“The rate of melanoma has dramatically increased in the past decades. Thankfully, advances in the treatment of the disease have also meant a decrease in the mortality rate. That is why we’re so committed to educating our patients on the importance of annual skin examinations conducted by a professional, monthly self-exams, and prevention.” said Dr. J. Morgan O’Donoghue.

Do you Practice Safe Sun?

skin-cancer-blog

Skin Cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and unprotected UV exposure the most preventable risk factor.

Luckily, protecting yourself from harmful UV rays is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Seek Shade – Keeping in mind that the sun’s rays are strongest from 10 AM to 2 PM.
  2. Wear Sun-Protective Clothing – When possible, wear lightweight, long-sleeved shirts, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses with UV protection. For additional protection, choose clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) number on the label.
  3. Apply Sunscreen - Apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to all skin that isn’t covered by clothing and reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating.

Click Here to test your knowledge about sun protection and share your results on social media with the hashtag #PracticeSafeSun to help others avoid harmful UV exposure.

In addition to being the most common type of cancer in the United States, Skin Cancer is also the most treatable – if detected early so be sure to practice monthly self-exams using the ABCDE’s of melanoma and, if you find any new spots, spots that are different from others, or spots that are changing, itching, or bleeding – contact your dermatologist and don’t skip your annual check up by your dermatologist.

Ready to go from fatter to flatter?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7J77fG9uto

The revolutionary new VANQUISH ME uses Selective RF™ technology to shrink and eliminate fat cells by selectively heating subcutaneous fat pockets (fat deposits that sit beneath the skin, but above the muscle), thereby reducing the circumference of the entire abdominal area or inner and outer thighs.

Radio frequency preferentially heats adipose tissue, disrupting fatty cells without impacting other types of cells on the skin or other structures.

VANQUISH ME has the largest treatment area in the industry and it is completely contactless for unrivaled comfort and safety, without BMI <30 limitations.

It has been documented that VANQUISH ME treatments cause permanent fat reduction with results visible even after 4 years.

What is the difference between the skin care products sold at a physician’s office and those sold at retail stores?

skin care products

Welcome back to the SkinScholar Blog!

Every day I’m asked, what makes our skin care products different from the cosmetic creams and serums that you buy at drug stores, department stores or specialty cosmetic stores and I love answering this question and helping people make the best choice for their skin!

I am sure you’ve been approached, more than once, by a salesperson asking you to try a pretty-foiled sample packet of their cream or serum. You went home, tried it and loved the “perfumey” smell, creamy texture, and the picture of the pretty jar it comes in. And that’s how they get you! We’re attracted to all the things that don’t have anything to do with how the product actually performs. We are attracted to the marketing!

Cosmetic skin products that are sold only in physician’s offices have been tested and proven to yield the best results for a particular skin type. The ingredients are, for the most part, stronger than the creams and serums sold in stores. Vitamin C and retinols, for example, are expensive to produce and they come in various strengths, and they need to be in certain forms to really penetrate the skin.
Your skin care physician or esthetician can act as your personal skin care consultant and recommend products they have tested and approved for your type of skin. Over-the-counter products are good for hydrating the skin, but they don’t have the ingredients or strength required to make much of a difference.

This blog is not intended to tell you that your department store creams are worthless. I always tell our patients that using anything is better than using nothing at all and hydration, as well as using sunscreen, is key to anti-aging so do not throw away your store-bought products! This blog is meant to educate you on the difference between the creams that your physician sells and those sold at the drug store.

I could go on forever about this topic – but I will elaborate in a later blog to keep your interest peaked…

I love feedback and questions so please reach out to me if you need help!

Love the skin you’re in!

Skin Scholar

Barb blog 1

Hello everyone! This is my first blog to our O’Donoghue Dermatology patients and potential patients. I have known many of you for more than twelve years and always look forward to seeing you again. I thought it would be great to expand our reach and let others know why you all have been so loyal to our practice. Dr. O’Donoghue is known by many as a great doctor, not only because of his high level of experience and knowledge, but also because he treats everyone with amazing kindness and care. It is an honor to work with Dr. O’Donoghue and to help him provide our patients with exceptional care.

So, as I was thinking about writing this blog, it brought me back to a college project that I had to do. We were asked to come up with a campaign for a business idea or marketing promotion. I chose skin care (surprise, surprise) as my topic. I learned a lot about proper skin care over the years from Dr. O’Donoghue, our medical assistants, reps, and patients. One part of my job I love the most is to share what I have learned and to help others. My project was named the Skin Scholar. So, I am thinking that it will be a perfect blog name. I hope you do too! I will pick topics that most of our patients need help with on a daily basis. We have knowledgeable staff to help you with all your skin care questions. I thank you all for trusting our practice and loyalty over the last twelve years. Stayed tuned for future blogs from the Skin Scholar!

Next blog subject sneak peek: What is the difference between skin care products sold at a physician office versus a retail store? It can be overwhelming to decide the right products for your skin! Stayed tuned!

The length and number of sessions depends on a variety of factors including the severity of the condition being treated. Your doctor will be able to provide an estimate before starting treatment.
