THE RIBBON CUTTING for Waccamaw Dermatology was held on Friday, August 13 at their new location at McLeod Dillon in the Professional Building, 705 North 8th Avenue, in Suite 3B (843-449-0453). Dr. Phil Wallace said he thought it was great that Waccamaw Dermatology decided to locate here and deliver services to the people of Dillon County and the surrounding area. He said a dermatologist is very much needed. He has known Dr. Bibb since 1981 when he they did their residency together. Dillon County Council Chairman T.F. “Buzzy” Finklea, Jr., also a patient of Waccamaw Dermatology, said it was a blessing to the people of the county to now have access to these services. He said many more people will be able to get the services they need due to this location. Dillon County Public-Private Partnership Chairman Mike Tyler agreed and says this show how the county is growing.
