Many of our patients from out-of-state already know this but the word is officially out: Providence, Rhode Island is America’s top city according to Travel + Leisure and GQ Magazine. We are ecstatic that our small state is finally receiving the recognition it deserves.
What is more important than our great city is Our Amazing Dream Team who cares for our patients before, during, and after their treatments. Both in our office and off-site we have specially trained nurses that have been working with our patients for years. In fact, one of them has been caring for our patients for over 18 years. We also have our private duty nurses as part of our team who work with us making sure your care is the absolute best. They can come to your hotel or to your home. You will feel safe and comfortable. YOU will know that you are being well cared for and that you are our number one priority.
Though our Dream Team is the reason to come to Providence, we also have a wonderful international airport served by Jet Blue, Southwest, American, Delta, United and more. Condor Airlines recently added service last year and started non-stop flights to Frankfurt, Germany. Frankfurt is a huge travel hub that makes it possible to fly from Providence to all over the world with just one stop.
We have a terrific rail service making it especially easy for travel along the East Coast corridor. Amtrak’s high-speed Acela train has made post-op visits very fast and comfortable from Boston, Connecticut, and to New York City.
We also have a confidential car service and our own specially trained drivers who know how to be sensitive to people who have had plastic surgery. They are very happy to take our patients back and forth, along the East coast, if they desire. One is a frequent driver that drives from Rhode Island to Florida. However, they primarily help our patients on shorter trips.
A surgeon from The Massachusetts General Hospital came to us for face lifting, eyelid rejuvenation, and facial contouring with fat injections and wanted private transportation. The surgeon chose to use our driver to take her back and forth from her home in Boston to our office for follow-up visits. She did spend the first few days in one of the special hotels we use. We have a number of wonderful hotels we work with in Providence who cater to our patients. We want our patients to have extra special care wherever they are.
The wonderful environment and the feel of Providence may surprise you. We have always been very enthusiastic about our city even before these recent surveys. Providence is an incredible city with a lot to offer despite its size. We are now appropriately known for our great culinary restaurants, a vibrant downtown area, an incredible college town that includes Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Johnson & Wales, and Providence College.

I came here enthusiastically over 20 years ago to join the faculty of Brown University Medical School and became a practicing plastic surgeon in Providence. I had no idea the city would become such a terrific place. We are so fortunate to have wonderful plastic surgery patients from our great state of Rhode Island but we are also very grateful for the many people who have come to us from out-of-state and from other countries. Our out-of-town patients are excited to come to our office in Providence. They tell us they came here to receive the best plastic surgery treatments available and love the warm and friendly specialized care that our team provides for them. We are so honored they have spread the word in so many ways including through patient reviews.
Our goal every day is to provide the best overall care and results our patients could get any where in the world. They not only receive the best care possible from all of us on our team but they also enjoy what this city has to offer during their stay here.
