COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Update

Posted on Mar 20, 2020 Latest News

Dear Patient Family,

We at the Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, patients, and employees very seriously. Like you, we’re closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close our office to protect and care for those who work with us, our patients, and the public.

We will miss seeing you, our family of patients, over the next two weeks as we have heard from so many that during this difficult time you felt actual relief and comfort coming to our practice. We are hopeful that we will be in a better place as a nation very soon. We hope to return to the office on April 6th for appointments if all is well. You may reach us via email on our website at, by phone (401-331-0202) at any time as our answering service is available 24/7 or on Facebook or Instagram. As a reminder, we are able to send skin care products by mail at any time.

We are all in this together and we would like to wish our patients and their families the very best as we strive for a healthier world. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support our patients and communities as needed.

For more information about COVD-19 and what you can do to keep healthy and safe, visit the Centers for Disease Control at or your local health department’s website.

Best Regards…Sending Healing and Positive Thoughts,

Lori G. Polacek, M.D. and the Team at the Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery
