Ratings for Dr. Patrick K. Sullivan
Dr Sullivan and his entire staff were amazing. It was scary for me to move forward with this surgery but they made it comfortable and supported me the whole way through. Great results and I would not hesitate to come back to his office in the future.
Dr. Sullivan, his wife Maureen, Kim his nurse and the entire staff have been wonderful. From simple injections through complex body sculpting they are focused on making the patient comfortable and the healing process as quick and easy as possible. Dr. Sullivan is known for his meticulous ability produce that natural look that increases confidence without the look of having had 'work' done. Thank you again to your entire staff for a very positive experience.
Mommy makeover As a physician I found out about Dr. Patrick Sullivan by references within the medical community in Rhode Island. I did see other doctors in consultation but I felt Dr. Sullivan was the best. Dr. Sullivan is extremely smart, experienced, very meticulous and detail-oriented. I think those are the essential qualifications to look for in a surgeon. I read many stories online of surgeries going wrong. I am not saying that anybody can guarantee a complication-free recovery, but I think looking for a surgeon with skills and professionalism can help a lot. If you want a job well done, I think Dr. Sullivan should be on your list of doctors to see. The first time I met Dr. Sullivan he took time to ask questions about my life and my background. He listened to my expectations regarding body image. Then he provided me with his opinion on what was surgically possible in my case. Seen the almost final results now I can say I think he has great taste when it comes to body proportions and I am glad I followed his suggestions. Dr. Sullivan’s office is impeccably clean and his staff is beyond attentive. I called Jenny with questions many times before and after booking the surgery date since I didn’t want to leave any detail behind. She was always kind and helpful. Dr. Sullivan’s nurses are dedicated and knowledgeable. Kim assisted me in every step of the way and gave me great advice on fast recovery. The doctor’s office provided me with paperwork that was detailed and understandable about the risks of the surgery, the possible complications and the guidelines on preoperative medications and instructions. On the day of the surgery I went to the operating room in Dudley Street and the personnel there was kind and understanding. I particularly requested to have my anesthesia done by Dr. Heather Panaro after recommendations and I didn’t regret it since everything went really smooth. The nurses in recovery were very patient towards me and didn’t hesitate to stay after hours until I felt better from my nausea. After the surgery I had priority to be seen by the doctor given my recent postoperative status and they allowed me to use an alternative entrance for privacy purposes. I think plastic surgery is extremely risky and dependent on the experience and the skills of the doctor. The job that Dr. Sullivan did on me is a work of art beyond my expectations, from the size of the implant he ended up choosing intraoperatively to the appearance and symmetry of the areola reduction, to the appearance of the scars. I followed the instructions they gave me in the office and had no problems or complications.
Where do I begin? I'm only one month post op and am already blown away by my results. Although there is still plenty of healing to go, it is very clear to see that Dr. Sullivan is truly an artist! I had breast augmentation with "internal" lift. From my first phone consultation with Jenny, I knew from that moment that I made the right decision dialing that number! Jenny was SUCH a pleasure to talk to. She gave me every detail from cost to pre-op and post-op. She answered every question I had and took the time to LISTEN to me and my concerns with my appearance. At my consultation, it was as if Jenny was a long time friend. I felt so welcomed with open arms. She spoke to me like a normal human being and NOT a patient. We even shared a few laughs! Now on to Dr. Sullivan....WOW! Professional, caring, patient, attentive, perfectionist....I can go on and on. He took his time listening to my concerns, explained his thoughts and suggestions in detail. He put me at such ease and made me feel like I wasn't "just another boob job". The moment just before of surgery as i am waiting for Dr. Sullivan, i felt completely calm. Surgery isnt exactly something people enjoy going through, but yet there i was, ready for surgery and calm as ever. This is because of Dr. Sullivan. Even walling into the operating room, the ataff waiting for me was awesome! Cracking jokes, etc. The days after surgery and post op apptointments kept right up qith the 5 star service. My nurse, Kim, was A+! I saw Kim for my pre-op appointment and all post-op appointments. She's the best. I had to call her one evening about taking a certain medication and she was getting back to me within minutes. Only one month post op and I can not be happier with everything. Dr. Sullivan and both answered every question I had a d made me feel 100% at ease with everything. These reviews are what attracted me to Dr. Sullivan and I hope my review does the same for someone else. When you take the plunge and do something like this and your doctor is just as excited as you are with the results....you know you made the right choice!
My experience was phenomenal with Dr. Patrick Sullivan. I definitely had done my research and was prepared to ask many questions to ease my concerns about potential surgery. My consult was informative and easy, I say this for a number of reasons. He along with one of his nurses met with me in a non examining room which immediately put me at ease. I was impressed that he had on a suit and not his physician’s coat, which also made a statement He listened and answered all of my questions and concerns, as well as, allowed me to speak to a patient in private to ask any additional questions, which was one of my requests. By the time I left there, I had a very comfortable feeling about having him be the one to do the surgery. That same week, I had already had 2 additional consults scheduled that I had paid for in advance, one being with a female. I say that as I wanted to get a female view with breast augmentation, but I was greatly disappointed with that consult. The appointments were night and day. I expected the doctor to advise on appropriate size, shape and fill that would fit my body structure. Needless to say, Dr. Sullivan did the surgery the week before Christmas. He called me the night before surgery to ask if I had any additional questions, he also called again the night after the surgery. His outreach was beyond my expectations. One of my, concerns was if I ran into any complications after surgery how and who would be available. His nursing staff is magnificent. They continually checked in with me during the holidays to make sure I was doing well and if I needed anything as this was post op time. Any questions I had during post op I called the office and I was immediately speaking to one of his nurses. I literally cannot say enough about my experience as it was top notch and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. It has been 2 years and I continue to have yearly check ups. I highly recommended and hold Dr. Sullivan in the highest regard and highly recommend him to anyone debating on plastic surgery.
Getting surgery done by Dr. Sullivan was one of the best decisions of my life. Dr. Sullivan along with his staff are incredibly caring and knowledgeable experts. They truly care about your experince and make you comfortable every step of the way. If you are ever looking to get work done such as rhinoplasty I highly recommend going to Dr. Patrick Sullivan. I love the result I got and would absolutely do it again thanks to Dr. Sullivan and his amazing staff.
At 67 I am 8 weeks out from a full facial rejuvenation. Though recovery took longer than a few weeks I am VERY pleased with the result and the extraordinary support from dr sullivan and his staff. He delivered exactly what he said he could do and did so expertly and with sensitivity. I was most concerned that I not have the telltale freakish windswept frozen look that is a giveaway. I hoped to look more like the self I have been most of my adulthood,, I wasn’t seeking youthful beauty but a less haggard look minus jowls primarily. Dr sullivan was clear about what he could take care of and what he could not . He did not try to talk me into “work” that might not be appropriate in my case ((dermabrasion ) though could be for others. He was highly recommended to me by my primary care doctor and an out of state plastic surgeon familiar with his reputation. . It is an expensive experience but one I have had no second thoughts about having had done. I look like a refreshed and enhanced version of myself - a subtle but noticeable improvement .
4 weeks post surgery and i am extremely pleased with my results. Dr. Sullivan and his staff are exceptional. From day one I've been treated with the utmost care and compassion i could ever imagine. Dr. Sullivan is brilliant in his field and knows exactly what i needed. He takes the time to really evaluate his patient and gives each one very personal attention. He believes in natural approaches to body rejuvenation and will only suggest what he believes will produce truly beautiful results. His staff is very personable and knowledgeable and i feel like they sincerely care about me...like a good friend. I am extremely satisfied with my pre and post op care and results and he is my definite choice for any future work i have done. I find it hard to believe that anyone could ever have a negative experience with this doctor or his staff. Thank you Dr. Sullivan, Jenny, Kim and your entire staff for making this such a positive experience for me.
I received excellent care from Dr Sullivan and his Nurses and would recommend his practice to anyone who is ready to make a change to their body. After 3 Cesarean Sections and a Hysterectomy, I was looking for reconstructive surgery, not just cosmetic, and a Doctor to hear what I was saying. Dr. Sullivan was honest, knowledgeable and respectful of the results I was looking for. I got exactly what I asked for and I could not be happier with my results. A special thanks to Kim for her patience and post-op support.
The contemplation of making a voluntary change to your body is not easy, nor is it something that you should take lightly. When I decided to pursue some options for body contouring I spent a lot of time researching potential candidates to interview for the role of my physician. I’m not the type of person who can choose a paint color for a wall in a short amount of time, so you can imagine the painstaking vetting I did when searching for the right person for the job. I first heard Dr. Sullivan’s name when I drove a friend of mine to have breast augmentation 15 years ago (performed by Dr. Sullivan) but I didn’t have much knowledge of his overall work, so my research began with his website. I was looking for someone who had proper credentials and ample experience. I wanted someone whom others spoke highly of and who had a positive, established reputation and when I began to read through Dr. Sullivan’s website, I saw that he had all of that and much more. Not only did Dr. Sullivan meet my initial standards but he well exceeded them. I didn’t realize that he was also nationally accredited/recognized as well as a respected educator associated with one of RI’s (and the country’s) most reputable universities. That was enough for me to schedule my initial consult. My in-person appointment didn’t disappoint. The office is tasteful and conveniently located. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the surrounding, medical campuses so you have the best possibility of a discrete appointment. The staff was courteous and friendly from my first impression to my post-surgical visits. Dr. Sullivan and his crew fielded my barrage of bulleted questions and welcomed additional ones as they arose. Months after my initial appointment when I had already decided to pursue the procedure, his nurses continued to accept my calls and discuss new concerns - they purposed to ease my growing anxieties. Even though I continued to give much thought to the overall procedure, I never questioned who I had chosen to do it. The select group of people I told about my procedure all concurred with my choice. When I went to my primary physician to get the “ok” for surgery she said how great he was and if she ever wanted to do something she would go to him because he’s such a talent. The nurses I spoke to the day of surgery also told me how great and meticulous Dr. Sullivan was but, again, I never doubted my choice. I could have gone anywhere; I have friends in every kind of body conscious industry from modeling and acting to professional sports. After I researched Dr. Sullivan, spoke to him in person and reviewed his work there was never a question as to who I would trust with this very important decision. For anyone considering elective surgery, your decision will require a lot of commitment but, more importantly, a lot of trust. Not only will you be making a large financial and emotional investment in yourself, but you will also be trusting someone with your body and potentially your life; you want to know that you will be under a steady hand and a keen eye. You will get that with Dr. Sullivan if you articulate all your desires and concerns up front. I’m very pleased with the results of my surgery and my overall experience. My results are significant to me but subtle to everyone else so if you ever run in to me and like what you see, you’ll never know I wasn’t born that way. That’s why I can confidently bestow my highest recommendation.
