Mint Car Wash Begins Building Third Savannah Location

The Dewitt Tilton Group Selected as Commercial Construction Company to Complete Project 

(SAVANNAH, GA) Mint Car Wash, a Savannah-based exterior express car wash company, has announced plans to build a third location in the greater Savannah area. Earlier this year, Mint hosted a grand opening event for its second location (4747 E. U.S. Hwy. 80) benefiting Coastal Pet Rescue. The original Mint Car Wash opened at 10000 Abercorn Street in July 2018.

Mint‘s newest car wash will be an impressive 4,500 square ft. building and 23 vacuum parking spaces on a 1.2-acre lot located at 302 Commercial Dr. The owners have chosen local commercial construction firm the Dewitt Tilton Group for the project, and the group expects to complete the car wash in the fall.

“As we approach our two-year anniversary since opening our business in Savannah, we are still seeking new ways to grow, serve the city, and expand the membership value of Mint’s Unlimited Wash Club,” said Mint Car Wash co-owner R. Daniel Blanton, Jr. “There’s major shopping around Hodgson Memorial Drive, making it a high-traffic area ideally suited for the unique service and value we deliver at Mint Car Wash.”

Mint Car Wash is a drive-through experience offering exciting features like its state-of-the-art car wash tunnel and fully outfitted self-service vacuum area complete with various cleaners and air detailing tools.   For those who enjoy a clean car, Mint offers its exclusive Unlimited Wash Club that allows members to wash their vehicle every day for one monthly price.  Memberships work at all Savannah Mint Car Wash locations.  Mint’s top wash package, the Full Minty, includes 21 separate cleaners, sealers and waxes designed to clean, shine and protect vehicle finishes.

“Mint Car Wash is the perfect company to occupy this space,” says Chris Tilton, co-principal of The Dewitt Tilton Group. “Based on the layout of the existing lot, only certain types of buildings could utilize the space effectively. So it has been really rewarding to work with Mint Car Wash on creating a structure that is pleasing to the eye that also makes the most of the square footage available to us.”

One unique characteristic of the build is the foundational slab. Given the unique needs of the car wash, the slab will be thicker than that of a retail space or restaurant. And as is standard for car wash foundations, trenches and drains must also be built into the slab to accommodate the hoses and water run-off.

Priding themselves on providing outstanding commercial construction services in Coastal Georgia and the Lowcountry, Tilton affirms that his team at the Dewitt Tilton Group are always finding innovative solutions for the most complex commercial construction challenges.

“This is an exciting project for us,” said Tilton. “It isn’t simply one structure with your typical entrances and exits: there are so many intricate parts involved with making a car wash not only functional, but also seamlessly convenient for Mint’s customers, and we are thrilled to be able to put the great minds on our team and our industry resources to this build.”

ABOUT MINT CAR WASH

Mint Car Wash is an exterior express car wash featuring its signature Full Minty wash package. In addition to vacuums, microfiber towels and interior cleaners included with every wash, Mint offers monthly Unlimited Wash Club membership options at $19.99 and $29.99/month. For more information, visit www.mintcarwash.biz or download its app in the Apple App and Google Play stores.

Pinnacle Medical Group Launches Telehealth Services for Patients

(BEAUFORT/BLUFFTON/HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC) Pinnacle Medical Group, the locally owned and operated parent company of Pinnacle Plastic Surgery, PURE Medical Spa and Beaufort Dermatology, will now offer telehealth appointments utilizing FaceTime and GoToMeeting for virtual visits. 

In the coming weeks, the practice’s electronic medical record provider will launch a downloadable telehealth application, which will integrate directly into the Pinnacle Medical Group’s operating system.

“As we are facing so many uncertainties in the midst of the coronavirus, it is so important to provide more access and options for high-quality care for our patients and community,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group

Pinnacle Medical Group will utilize telehealth options for consultations and follow-up appointments for the following visit types including but not limited to: 

  • Dermatological Services:
    • Viral skin lesions
    • Acne
    • Skin cancer follow-up
    • Pigmented lesions
    • Biopsy follow-up
    • Disease management
    • Common diagnoses
  • Plastic Surgery Services:
    • Insurance and cosmetic consultations
    • Pre-operative appointments for procedures and surgeries
    • Follow-up visits
    • Laceration & burn consultation
  • Medical Spa Services:
    • Consultations
    • Follow-up visits

Since no one is certain of how long this pandemic is going to last, Pinnacle Medical Group will continue to offer in-office appointments in addition to the telehealth options. Dr. Klenke said, “Telehealth appointments will help to reduce exposure to COVID-19 and to minimize surges in care facilities. However, it is important to stress that we will recommend an office visit if there is a more serious issue or need for surgery, such as a patient that has skin cancer that needs to be excised.”  

The new telehealth appointments will be available between the practice’s temporarily modified office hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

Anyone interested in telehealth is asked to call the office and a patient concierge will be able to assist with the appointment. A phone or computer with a microphone and camera is required. Specific instructions will be sent after the appointment is scheduled. For more information, please call (843) 815-6699

Pinnacle Medical Group Welcomes Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sarah Cazorla to Beaufort Dermatology

Standard
Pinnacle Medical Group Welcomes Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sarah Cazorla to Beaufort Dermatology Provider Brings New Range of Comprehensive Women’s Services to Lowcountry Patients (BLUFFTON/BEAUFORT, S.C.) Pinnacle Medical Group is pleased to announce that Dr. Sarah Cazorla has joined its Beaufort Dermatology location, bringing with her plastic and reconstructive surgeries previously unavailable to patients in the area.
Dr. Sarah Cazorla Joins Pinnacle Medical Group

Dr. Sarah Cazorla Joins Pinnacle Medical Group

Cazorla is published in the field of breast cancer and has been practicing medicine since 2011. Better known among her patients as “Dr. C.”, she performs a variety of cosmetic procedures that range from facial rejuvenation and skincare to “mommy makeovers” that might include a breast lift, reduction or augmentation, tummy tucks and vaginal rejuvenation to restore ease of ordinary processes as well as intimate well-being.

“One of the significant benefits that Dr. Cazorla brings to our practice in Beaufort is the ability to offer local breast cancer patients same-day breast reconstruction close to home,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group. “Previously, these patients would have had to come to our Bluffton facilities or travel to Charleston, but now they can receive these services from within the comfort of their communities.” Cazorla will also offer injectable treatments, including Botox and fillers, and will provide a surgeon’s holistic perspective in administering these procedures. “I am an artist at heart, so I use my eye for aesthetic to provide pleasing natural results that augment my patients’ natural beauty and help them achieve their best selves,” said Cazorla. “My vision is to be able to offer comprehensive women’s care and provide an aesthetic experience that allows me to address each of my patients’ personal goals.” “A plastic surgeon understands the muscles of the face and will know how to refresh patients so they don’t look overdone,” she said. “Before any potential procedure, we talk with patients to come to an understanding of their objectives so that we can develop a comprehensive plan that aligns their goals with mine.” Her goal is ultimately to help her patients attain confidence and empowerment. Cazorla is originally from New York City, where she began training as a surgeon. She completed a residency program at Texas Tech Health Science Center, Department of Surgery, in Lubbock, Texas. She then completed her plastic surgery fellowship at the University of Virginia Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Since moving to South Carolina, Cazorla has become affiliated with Hilton Head Hospital, Beaufort Memorial Hospital and Bluffton-Okatie Outpatient Center. She is a candidate member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and an associate fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Cazorla speaks three languages; Spanish and Portuguese in addition to English. In her free time, she enjoys drawing and painting as well as interior design. “I am honored to be a part of Pinnacle Plastic Surgery and to serve this beautiful community, which has quickly become my home,” Cazorla said. “I want each of our patients in turn to feel at home with us here at Pinnacle.” Cazorla is excited to become involved in her new community, and is teaming up with Emma Scott Pack Photography to host a “Girls Night Out” on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 5:30 – 7 p.m. at Circa 1810 Salon in Port Royal, South Carolina. Attendees will enjoy an informational evening with a wine bar, hors d’oeuvres and door prizes.
