Dr. Germain's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Germain "Dr. Marguerite Germain is known for her passion and desire to help others. In addition to her medical training she has long since developed an eye for beauty. Inspired by years spent traveling, particularly in Italy, her artistic talent evolved into inspiring confidence in others through her practice. A board certified dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, Dr. Germain, provides exceptional service in clinical and cosmetic dermatology for patients from all over the East Coast. While her warm and caring demeanor wins over the heart of everyone she meets, it's her independent thinking, skilled precision and technologically savvy ways that make her the best at what she does. After graduating from Sweet Briar College in Virginia with a major in Italian Studies and a minor in Science, Art, Language and Music, Dr. Germain decided to live in Italy for a year. During this time, she worked for the UN Food and Agricultural Organization while perfecting her Italian and enjoying the architecture and art of Italy.A painter herself, Dr. Germain believes that dermatology is a true visual art. During her time in Italy, she discovered what she refers to as "the world's most beautiful faces," the study of which enables her to envision and achieve beautiful, natural, results for her patients.Upon her return to the U.S., Dr. Germain enrolled at the University of Maryland to continue her study of the sciences in order to qualify for medical school. She then attended the University of Maryland School of Medicine, receiving a Navy Medical Scholarship.During the following 4 years, her deep commitment to the study of medicine earned her an internship in general medicine at the Bethesda Naval Hospital (Bethesda, Maryland). Following her internship, she was selected for Flight school, Flight Surgery, Helicopter Pilot Training and Survival Tactics at Pensacola Naval Air Station (Pensacola, Florida).While completing her post-residency tour, the Navy sent Dr. Germain to San Diego, California for surgical training. Dr. Germain was subsequently assigned to the Dallas, Texas Naval Air Base to medically and surgically care for pilots and their families. She was then chosen by the Navy to fill 1 of only 4 coveted dermatology billets.After 3 years of dermatology training, given her choice of duty stations, Dr. Germain selected Charleston, South Carolina for station. After over 3 years of outstanding performance at the Charleston Naval Hospital, she decided to separate from the Navy and enter private practice. In July 2003, Dr. Germain moved into her own office in Mount Pleasant. Because of the amazing success and phenomenal growth of her practice, she has opened a larger, state-of-the-art facility in Mount Pleasant where she now practices with her hand picked, expert staff.Dr. Germain is a member of:• The International Society of Cosmetic and Laser Surgeons• The American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology & Aesthetic Surgery• American Society for Mohs Surgery• American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery• American Society for Dermatologic SurgeryMembership in these organizations helps demonstrate her performance, experience, and commitment to providing the highest quality care to her patients.
