Gerald N. Goldberg, MD Receives Second National Award for Laser Medicine Advancement
Gerald N. Goldberg, MD, Laser Surgeon, Dermatologist, and Founder of Pima Dermatology, is the 2019 recipient of the Ellet H. Drake Memorial Award. This lifetime achievement award honors Dr. Goldberg for his masterful contributions to the field of laser and energy-based medical devices. This is one of the highest level of awards that can be received in the world of Lasers. The recognition is especially momentous as Dr. Goldberg won the other most prestigious award of this caliber, the Leon Goldman Award, in 2017.
Presented to Dr. Goldberg on March 29, 2019 in Denver, Colorado at the 39th Annual Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery (ASLMS), this award honors him for his masterful work in Lasers. This award was established in 1995 to recognize a practicing physician who has contributed to innovative laser procedures and/or laser products for medicine. It is given in memory of Ellet Drake, MD, co-founder of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.
After 23 years of outstanding service and friendship, it is with a heavy heart that we announce our Cosmetic Provider and former Cosmetic Director, Lynne Blaser (formerly Coulter), will be relocating to her home in Michigan in May. Lynne’s last day at Pima Dermatology is Friday, April 26th.
While Lynne will be greatly missed, we are delighted about her decision to move closer to her husband, daughter, and grandchildren. We are very grateful for the outstanding care she has provided to you, our patients, and the friendship she has extended to us, her Pima Dermatology family.
After over two decades of providing exemplary care and extraordinary leadership, we honor Lynne’s contributions as a provider, skin wellness expert, and beloved colleague and friend. Many of you have experienced Lynne’s professionalism and skill demonstrated through her compassionate care, skin wellness expertise, and warmth. Receiving care and treatments from Lynne has always felt like sitting with a friend over a hot cup of tea. Her ability to put patients at immediate ease, unflappable demeanor, active listening skills, and creative skin care solutions will be greatly missed.
For Lynne, it has always been about the people she serves and works alongside. “The hardest part of my decision to move back to Michigan, after living in Tucson for over 20 years, is knowing I won’t see all of the people I work with or the patients I treat each and every day.”
As we work diligently to bring on additional Skin Care Professionals, for all of your Cosmetic needs, including Laser Skin Toning, Skin Freshening Peels, CoolSculpting, Dermal Filler Injections, Laser Hair Reduction, Micro Needling, and more, our exceptional Cosmetic Providers, Maria Cano (Aesthetician & Certified Laser Medical Technician) and Alma Zuniga (RN & Certified Laser Medical Technician), have immediate appointments available.
