Ramzi W. Saad M.D., Barry M. Austin, M.D. and Navid Bouzari, M.D., Board Certified Dermatologists along with Vanessa Rando, PA, will conduct skin cancer screenings, which includes an assessment of sun spots and moles. They will also provide patients with sun safety and melanoma prevention tips.

Last May, South Shore Skin Center and Spa dermatologists spotted several potential cases of melanoma during their free Skin Cancer Screening Clinic held at their Plymouth practice. That event was a collaboration of Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center and South Shore Skin Center and Spa and supported by the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Cancer Society.

According to Richard F. Eisen, M.D. Board Certified Dermatologist and Founding Physician/Director of South Shore Skin Center and Spa, “Melanoma is rising rapidly in New England and in particular in the South Shore area. At last year’s screening, among the 100 who attended, we diagnosed one severe case of melanoma and three potential new melanoma cases which were confirmed after biopsy.”

Recent data has shown that melanoma is the number one cancer in young, white American women. South Shore Skin Center and Spa’s physicians remind adults and children to follow these important measures in the prevention of skin cancer:

Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.
Avoid sunlamps and tanning beds.
Use ample amounts of sunscreen or sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even if it is cloudy.
Wear protective clothing and large framed or wrap-around sunglasses to protect the eye area.
Have your skin checked by a dermatologist regularly.
Note any moles or other spots on the skin that have changed. Have them checked by a physician as soon as possible.

South Shore Skin Center and Spa’s Recent Skin Cancer Screening Clinic Reveals Potential New Cases of Melanoma

During National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Awareness Month (May), the dermatologists at South Shore Skin Center and Spa spotted several potential cases of melanoma during their free Skin Cancer Screening clinic held at their Plymouth practice.

According to Dr. Richard F. Eisen, Board Certified Dermatologist and Founding Physician/Director of South Shore Skin Center, who took part in the screenings that evening, “Melanoma is rising rapidly in New England and in particular in the South Shore area. At our recent screening, we diagnosed one severe case of melanoma and three potential new melanoma cases which may be confirmed cases after biopsy.”

100 people from the South Shore and Plymouth areas attended the free screening evening. The event was a collaboration between Jordan Hospital Club Cancer Center and South Shore Skin Center and Spa and supported by the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Cancer Society.

Many who attended had fair skin and/or had never had their skin checked before.

South Shore Skin Center and Spa providers who were screening patients along with Dr. Eisen included Dr. Ramzi W. Saad (partner at South Shore Skin Center and organizer of the annual screening event), Dr. Emily P. Tierney, Dr. Barry M. Austin, Dr. William W. Stocker, Jessica L. Bahros PA-C, Elizabeth J. McLeish PA-C and Vanessa H. Pollard PA-C. Maryellen Maguire-Eisen, RN, MSN, Executive Director of the Children’s Melanoma Prevention Foundation was also on hand with the Glow Vista Skin Analyzer taking high definition profile photos which showed attendees the extent of their skin’s UV damage.

“New England has the highest concentration of melanoma cases in the United States. It is the most common cancer in young white women ages 25-29 and second only to breast cancer in women ages 30-34. This is the first time we have seen such a significant number of cases at a screening of 100 people. It is an indication of just how common and serious skin cancers are. It cannot be stressed enough – the way to minimize melanoma mortality is to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays, to carefully perform monthly self-skin examinations and to obtain a skin cancer screening annually,” noted Dr. Saad.

South Shore Skin Center and Spa tips for preventing skin cancer:
Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun.
Avoid sunlamps and tanning beds.
Use ample amounts of sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30 every day, even if it is cloudy.
Wear protective clothing and large framed or wrap-around sunglasses to protect the eye area.
Have your skin checked by a dermatologist regularly.
Note any moles or other spots on the skin that have changed. Have them checked by a physician as soon as possible.

South Shore Skin Center Relocates to Brand New Medical Building at One Scobee Circle

One Scobee Circle in Plymouth
One Scobee Circle in Plymouth

  South Shore Skin Center, one of the most progressive dermatology practices in Massachusetts with offices in Cohasset and Plymouth, has recently moved their Plymouth practice from 45 Resnik Road to the newly constructed 20,000 square-foot medical building on 1.38 acres at One Scobee Circle.

 

 

South Shore Skin Center now occupies the entire 6,600 square-foot third floor of the new three-story building at Scobee Circle that is situated on the corner of Resnik Road. RHCI-Plymouth Outpatient Rehabilitation Center (the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Cape and Islands) resides on the first floor and E. Morgan Scheiber. DMD PC and Associates occupies a 3,200 square-foot medical condo on the building’s second floor.

South Shore Skin Center had outgrown their eight room, 2,600 square-foot Resnik Road location, which influenced their decision to purchase the space at One Scobee Circle and increase their practice’s footprint to almost three times the size of their previous office. The practice now features a large reception area, 12 surgical/medical exam rooms, a clinical and outpatient area as well as business and practitioner offices. The new space has also enabled South Shore Skin Center to launch their full cosmetic spa, which boasts four plush treatment rooms expressly for facials, anti-aging treatments, laser treatments, Thermage and cosmetic procedures.

Caring for thousands of patients south of Boston, South Shore Skin Center was founded by Dr. Richard Eisen in 1988 and has grown significantly over the years. The practice has a staff of 25 with three other physicians: Dr. Ramzi Saad, Dr. Katherine Ayers and Dr. William Stocker, as well as three physician assistants, three cosmetic nurse specialists, three estheticians and 12 other staff members.

“We’re very excited about our new office because it will enable us to really expand upon the services that we already offer and better serve a greater number of patients in Southeastern Massachusetts and the Cape area. We will add another physician over the next month as our practice continues to grow,” noted Dr. Eisen.

The building’s developer was Alpines, LLC of Plymouth and construction was done by Coastal Restorations, also of Plymouth. The modern, energy efficient building features radiant heat and solar panels provided by Alternate Energy of Plymouth. South Shore Skin Center’s reception area features an energy monitor which shows how much energy the solar panels produce every day.

Conveniently located off Route 44, One Scobee Circle offers free parking for 106. To learn more about South Shore Skin Center, visit www.southshoreskincenter.com.
