Syed M. Quadri, M.D
Dr. Quadri is the founder and Medical Director of QM Spa. He attended Brown University in Rhode Island and has been licensed to practice medicine since 2000 in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Chosen the best physician for Morton Hospital three years in a row and a Fellow of Society for Critical Care, member of ACP and MMS, you are assured to be in good hands.
Dr. Quadri chose to start QM Spa because he began to help HIV patients, who suffered severe weight loss, look healthy and more rejuvenated. As medicine improved, so did treatments and these patients began to live longer, resulting in their desire for reconstructive surgery. The outcomes were so satisfying to doctor and patient, he decided to continue the work in this field. He doesn’t believe in making one look dramatically changed. He doesn’t alter ones major features, but he does make you look natural, yet enhancing, and attends to what it is that you are unhappy with.
His goals are to provide quality service in the anti-aging field providing his clients with a clean, sterile and relaxing atmosphere. He feels that it is important to everyone at QM Spa to minimize the client’s anxieties about any and all procedures.
Some of Dr. Quadri greatest medical achievements involve:
- Meriam Hospital, Rhode Island Hospital and Pawtucket Memorial, all of Brown facilities.
- Morton Hospital (2006), New England Hospice Associates, Omni Medical and Diagnostic (2207 – 2012) then merged with In Patient Consultants (IPC).
- Private practice until QM Spa was established. Omni is where most of his work in this field was performed using facial fillers.
All at QM Spa have the same vision as Dr. Quadri for their patients. This includes a clean environment, natural looking outcomes, good customer service, making clients happy so that when they leave, they leave with a feeling of comfort and confidence.
John Weber, President of QM Spa is an important and integral part of the company. His position varies, as he wears many hats in an effort to ensure that the spa runs fluidly and cohesively. All employees report to John, as he is responsible for running the back office assuring that all operations and client satisfaction are fulfilled.
Throughout John Weber’s day, his focus is for the client to have an extraordinary experience with the Spa. He strives to make certain that there are little to no problems, to avoid any and all problems and to assure clients that if there are any questions, they could go to him.
When asked why John believes QM Spa is different from others, he states the obvious. “We are more hands-on, more personable and we create a relationship with our client.”
Thankful for the staff that has been formed at QM Spa, he looks forward to greater experiences, long-term relationship, and continued quality care. It’s all about the client.

Although Alyssa is a full time nurse, she still loves making people feel beautiful and confident in themselves. She wants her clients to leave the Spa happy and satisfied after their treatment. She feels that a consultation is a must before treatment and even the smallest imperfection can make one look at themselves differently. So, less is more when working in an esthetic industry.
What she expects in her line of work is that her clients know that during a consult, she will explain procedure benefits as well as risks. She wants her clients to trust her, leave happy and be completely satisfied with their end result.
Alyssa intends to keep up with the latest trends in her industry to be the best that she can be in her specialty.
