PR Tip from Ryan Nelson

Tip from Ryan Nelson: If you're just starting off in the world of public relations and someone asks you to create a media list, don't put advertising executives and other sales related people on there. It looks lazy and your internship/employer/contract person will wonder if you understand the side of editorial at all.

Get to know reporters, their beats, editors, don't have to know them personally (however that does help) know WHAT they do.

You wouldn't send a recipe to a crime reporter, right? Then get with it.

Sparkle Party at Germain Dermatology Mount Pleasant

We can't believe it's been 10 years of being part of the Sparkle Party at Germain Dermatology!

Hope to see you there. **It will be held at the Mount Pleasant office at 612 Seacoast Parkway.

PR TV Tip from Ryan Nelson

PR Tip from Ryan:
Following up via phone to see if your client will receive coverage about a press release, event, etc. is good to do. But when should you not do it?

Early mornings at 6-7am
Afternoons 3-7pm

Why? Because the morning show is happening and the producer is most likely to answer the phone - which means you're interrupting a broadcast. In newspaper/print - many aren't in the office at 6am because they work different hours to put out their issue.

Stop and think about the times you approach any type of news organization. And remember that when there are odd hours, you may not get the response you want.

10th Annual Germain Dermatology Sparkle Party


PR Tip From Ryan Nelson

Tip: When you create a media alert, don't write it in all caps - not because it looks like you're yelling and that your event is beyond important - because, if you want news to put the event in the daybook, you need to make it easy so they can copy and paste. They are busy. Make it easier for news outlets.

Back to School TIP

Now that the kids are back to school, don't forget to take care of you!


Germain Dermatology announces the introduction of Emsculpt-- a groundbreaking new approach to sculpting the abdomen and the buttocks --that simultaneously addresses both muscle and fat. Emsculpt is now available at both Germain Dermatology office locations: 612 Seacoast Parkway in Mount Pleasant and 602 N. Main Street in Summerville. Dr. Germain is the first to offer Emsculpt to the Lowcountry.

Free consultations are available to see if you're a candidate by calling (843) 881-4440.

Germain Dermatology Welcomes New Physician Assistant to Summerville Office

Lainey O’Donnell has joined the Germain Dermatology staff as their newest board-certified physician assistant. 
After receiving her undergraduate degree in biology from the College of Charleston, Lainey joined the Germain Dermatology family as a medical assistant; where she worked for three years prior to enrolling in PA School at South College in Knoxville, TN. 
While in school, her interests in dermatology continued to grow and she volunteered at various health fairs, educating both children and adults on the importance of sun protection.
Originally from Mount Pleasant, SC, Lainey returned home from PA school to train with Dr. Germain for her elective rotation, and immediately knew where she wanted her next journey to begin. Lainey is looking forward to helping patients feel confident and healthy in their own skin through medical practices, treatments and education.

 Germain Dermatology’s board-certified dermatologists and dermatology physician assistants will be on site to answer your questions, check for irregularities and discuss how often you should examine your skin and what to do if you notice anything suspicious.

If you have noticed a slow-growing bump, a changing mole or a dry and rough scaly patch, it should be seen by a dermatologist. When skin cancer is treated in its early stages, most skin cancers can be treated and cured. Basal and squamous cell skin cancers are the most common and are found mainly on the parts of the body that are most exposed to the sun.
