The Chamber Ambassadors honored Thacker Dermatology as the Leading Business of the Week for July 22, 2019.
A desire to make others happy and fulfilling a dream that started in medical school, Dr. Betsy Thacker, now Dr. Betsy Backe, followed her medical path into dermatology.
“I did a two week rotation in dermatology in my fourth year of medical school with Dr. David Cohen in Macon,” Backe said. “He was the happiest doctor I'd ever met and that made an impression on me. I like being positive and I'm an optimist.”
Since 2011, Thacker Dermatology has grown from a one physician, five employee practice to a four physicians, 25 employee practice that provides a full range of medical, surgical and aesthetic services to South Georgia and North Florida.
“We have been voted “Best Dermatologist” by the VDT readers since 2013.” said Backe. We have continued to grow and expand our care, both in patients served and services offered in each of those years, while retaining our commitment to customer services and patient satisfaction.
Two unique aesthetic treatments offered at Thacker Dermatology are the non-surgical body contouring devices Trusculpt and EmSculpt, the latter is the only device which can actually build muscle and burn fat. According the Thacker Dermatology, their facility is the only practice in South Georgia offering Emsculpt.
“We are always bringing state-of-the-art treatments and techniques, particularly in the area of aesthetics,” said Backe.
Thacker Dermatology is a proud member of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce.
In 2017, Thacker Dermatology hosted a chamber’s business after hours event.
“Lowndes County and this area have really believed in me so I've tried to invest back in the community,” Backe said. “I've tried to create good paying jobs with great benefits for my employees and I've tried to be generous with my finances and with my time with a number of nonprofits in the area.”
