providence_skylineBoard-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan’s reputation and word-of-mouth referrals from satisfied patients inspire many people to travel to our Providence, Rhode Island location. Therefore, we are experienced at providing patients that live outside Rhode Island with special care and attention throughout the consultation, surgery, and recovery process. Many of Dr. Sullivan’s patients are from out of state and out of the country. We at Dr. Sullivan’s office pride ourselves in taking the very best care of our patients from their first consultation (whether it is by phone, e-mail, SKYPE, or in person) until years after surgery. If you are traveling from another state or country, both our office and our surgical suite are easily located in Providence, RI, across the street from Rhode Island Hospital. TF Green Providence, Rhode Island Airport is just 15 minutes away off of 95 south. The Amtrak and commuter train station is only 10 minutes away. We can arrange for a private vehicle to pick you up at either place if you so desire.

Virtual Consultations

We treat people from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, South America and even Asia. Due to the long distances separating us from many of our out-of-town patients, virtual consultations have become a specialty for our practice. For your convenience, we’ve made the process as simple as possible—just follow the steps below.

  1. Let us know you are interested in traveling to ensure you have one of the finest and most naturally impressive results in the world by calling our practice or submitting a virtual consultation form online.
  2. Our superb and tenured patient coordinator staff will reach out to you to provide some initial information and help you schedule your virtual consultation. (If you haven’t already submitted pictures/videos with your online form in step 1, you will be asked to do so via email or regular mail at this time.)
  3. On the scheduled date(s), your virtual consultation will be conducted by way of telephone, Skype and/or FaceTime—along with the pictures/videos you send us—allowing you to “meet” Dr. Sullivan without needing to fly to Rhode Island.
  4. If the consultation goes well, we will help you coordinate plans to come to Rhode Island for your procedure. Since numerous patients travel from throughout the U.S. and the world to our office, we have significant experience and are highly knowledgeable in how to best care for your individual travel and accommodation needs.

Throughout the entire process, our team will be available answer questions, address concerns and ensure you receive an exceptional degree of personalized attention—just like we would if you lived locally and were visiting our practice in-person.

Dr. Sullivan is happy to announce he has resumed elective surgeries!

We are also now seeing patients in the office again following all guidelines and taking every precaution possible to provide an incredibly safe environment for all patients and staff.

If you have any interest in summer surgery or services, please call us or contact us immediately so we can help you coordinate this before those spots become unavailable. Further, if you are seeking any services or surgery in 2020, we are anticipating an increase in price soon to deal with operating room fee increases.

We are here for any surgical or cosmetic questions you may have. Get in touch with us to see if there is any way we can help you.

We will continue to be here virtually for all those who prefer to have consultations in the comfort of their home.

Our online virtual consultations have been a very popular option for patients from as far away as Asia as well as usual coast to coast patients from New York to California, Oregon to Florida and many in New England.

Our virtual web consultations can be done right in the comfort of your own home, all you need is a secure internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone! We have 5 main steps we aim to accomplish with the virtual consultation:

  1. We listen to each patient carefully to establish exactly what it is they are looking for.
  2. We will give instructions to each patient on the specific pictures we will need from them as part of the virtual consultation. We send out sample pictures of just what we need, and the patient can send back their pictures that replicate this.
  3. We have chosen specific before and after photos of Dr Sullivan’s patients in order to show the patients what a prospective patient can expect (note, individual results will vary).
  4. We plan out and together come up with what we think is going to be a superb treatment plan for them.
  5. Finally, we find a time that is best for them that we can get this done.
