I would like to thank your staff for all the assistance you gave me with obtaining a license in both Virginia and Delaware. I have been practicing medicine for over 20 years and have not had to deal with medical licensing for quite some time. I appreciate your knowledge, expertise, and attention to details. Your service saved me hours of frustration in dealing with numerous forms and phone calls. Therefore, I was able to continue with my busy practice while my applications were being processed. I highly recommend PLS to any physician applying for licensure. Additionally, I would not hesitate to use your services again if and when the need arises. Thank you for all of your attention and personal service.
– Dr. RM, Virginia & Delaware

Delaware is located on the Atlantic Coast in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. The state takes its name from Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr, an English nobleman and Virginia‘s first colonial governor, after whom what is now called Cape Henlopen was originally named. Delaware was one of the thirteen colonies participating in the American Revolution and on December 7, 1787, became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, thereby becoming known as The First State.
Delaware is located in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula and is the second smallest state in area (after Rhode Island). Estimates in 2007 rank the population of Delaware as 45th in the nation, but 6th in population density, with more than 60% of the population in New Castle County. Delaware is divided into three counties. From north to south, these three counties are New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. While the southern two counties have historically been predominantly agricultural, New Castle County has been more industrialized.
The state ranks second in civilian scientists and engineers as a percentage of the workforce and number of patents issued to companies or individuals per 1,000 workers. The history of the state’s economic and industrial development is closely tied to the impact of the Du Pont family, founders and scions of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, one of the world’s largest chemical companies.
