Holly Carter, an upstate South Carolina native, is a physician assistant with more than 10 years of clinical experience at Germain Dermatology. Holly graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BS in biology. During her four years at the University of South Carolina, she spent her free time volunteering at medical clinics in the area. Holly's passion for medicine led her to pursue a career in the field at the Medical University of South Carolina, where she received her masters of science in physician assistant studies in 2005. Shortly after graduation, Holly joined our practice and was personally trained in dermatology and dermatologic surgery by Dr. Germain prior to starting her own clinic.
Holly is committed to providing excellent care to her patients in all aspects of dermatology. She treats various skin conditions, provides skin exams, and performs skin biopsies and surgeries. Holly can also recommend a personal skin care routine and cosmetic options for interested patients. She thinks patient education is an important aspect of dermatology and takes the time to ensure her patients understand their treatment options and plans. Holly expands her knowledge and stays up to date on treatments of dermatology through self-study, specialized training, and conferences. Holly also lectures to other local health care providers in hopes of increasing awareness of skin cancer, common dermatology conditions, and sun protection.
Holly is an active member of her community, and her current professional memberships include:
American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA), South Carolina Dermatological Association (SCDA), South Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (SCAPA), and South Carolina Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants (SCSDPA).
