I write this in enthusiastic support of PLS. I found them listed in the New England Journal of Medicine when I was contemplating a move to Connecticut. I have experienced the process of obtaining a medical license in other states and have found it to be a lengthy and tedious process, which requires time and patience. It involves filling out lengthy forms that need to be sent out to different institutions and have to be followed up with phone calls to administrative staff who are busy with other issues. It is a true test of one’s patience, persistence and to some extent, charm, to complete all the requirements. This is often hard for physicians who are busy with their patients and other responsibilities and are always pressed for time. I found the solution to this daunting task by calling PLS. From the first conversation, I was impressed by their services. They were able to give me clear information about the requirements for a medical license in Connecticut. I filled out a form with all the necessary information only once and the rest was taken care of. The staff at PLS was always polite and prompt to answer any questions that I had along the way. I had my license in less than a month without spending numerous hours filling out forms or making phone calls. I think that this is a very useful service for busy physicians. I highly recommend them and would use them again without a second thought.

About Connecticut:

Connecticut is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by Rhode Island to the east, Massachusetts to the north, the state of New York to the west, and by the Long Island Sound to the south. Southwestern Connecticut is part of the New York metropolitan area; three of Connecticut’s eight counties, including most of the state’s population, are in the New York City combined statistical area, commonly called the Tri-State area.
Connecticut is the 29th most populous state, with 3.5 million residents, and is ranked 48th in size by area, making it the 4th most densely populated state. Called the Constitution State and the Nutmeg State, Connecticut has a long history dating from early colonial times and was influential in the development of the federal government of the United States. Connecticut’s first European settlers were Dutch and established a small, short-lived settlement in present-day Hartford at the confluence of the Park and Connecticut rivers, called Huys de Goede Hoop. Initially, half of Connecticut was a part of the Dutch colony, New Netherland, which included much of the land between the Connecticut and Delaware rivers. The first major settlements were established in the 1630s by the English. Thomas Hooker led a band of followers overland from the Massachusetts Bay Colony and founded what would become the Connecticut Colony; other settlers from Massachusetts founded the Saybrook Colony and the New Haven Colony. Both the Connecticut and New Haven Colonies established documents of Fundamental Orders, considered the first constitutions in North America. In 1662, the three colonies were merged under a royal charter, making Connecticut a crown colony. This colony was one of the Thirteen Colonies that revolted against British rule in the American Revolution.

Connecticut enjoys a temperate climate due to its long coastline on Long Island Sound. This has given the state a strong maritime tradition. Modern Connecticut is also known for its wealth. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Connecticut had ready access to raw materials which helped to develop a strong manufacturing industry, and financial organizations flourished: first insurance companies in Hartford, then hedge funds in Fairfield county. This prosperity has helped give Connecticut the highest per capita income, Human Development Index (0.962), and median household income in the country.
