Greenwich Medical Spa is pleased to welcome Nurse Practitioner Koral Ben-Simon, RN, APRN, EMT-B, to our Greenwich and Westport locations. Koral earned a BSN from Binghamton University and an MSN from Emory University, then worked in the outpatient endocrinology setting for 2.5 years before moving into the aesthetics field. Before joining the GMS family, she spent a year with a national aesthetics brand, performing laser hair removal, CoolSculpting, CoolTone, Ultherapy and injectables.
Koral’s interest in aesthetics resulted from her personal insecurity with her appearance growing up and the realization that investing in herself on the outside allowed her to be more comfortable and confident on the inside. Some of her go-to transformative treatments for patients and herself include BOTOX, The Eraser and dermal fillers. It was professional exposure to the medical aesthetics field while earning her master’s degree that confirmed her desire to work in the industry, where she focuses on connecting with each patient to understand their goals and build a trusting relationship. Koral loves visiting her extended family in Israel and is involved in a wellness community with people from around the country, but she hails from Westchester, NY, and now that she has returned to the area, looks forward to volunteering at a local animal shelter.

I attended Binghamton University for my BSN and Emory University for my MSN.
RN, APRN, EMT-B
I worked in the outpatient endocrinology setting for 2.5 years before moving into the aesthetic field.
I worked at Ideal Image for one year where I performed laser hair removal, coolsculpt/ cooltone, ultherapy, and injectables.
Early on, I found an interest in aesthetics as a result of my personal insecurity with my appearance growing up. Once I invested in myself and felt comfortable in my own skin, I became more confident in the way I carried myself. Having exposure to this field while earning my master’s degree confirmed my passion and I am excited to have the opportunity to continue helping people look and feel their best!
I am extremely excited to begin working at Greenwich Medical Spa! Everyone that I have been introduced to so far has been so welcoming and kind. I am looking forward to being part of such a caring and passionate team!
My favorite treatment to perform at GMS is Botox. I love that Botox can be used as both a preventative and corrective treatment and love the smooth yet natural appearance that patients are left with. The Eraser is my favorite treatment to get. It helps to even out the texture of my skin and improve the appearance. My favorite treatment to see patients get is filler. I love to see the look on a patient’s face when they see their immediate transformation!
To me, the most important aspect of patient care is connecting with the patient and understanding their goals. Building a trusting relationship with each patient is the foundation of patient care; everything else falls into place after that!
The best compliment I’ve received was being told that I was the best provider they had ever seen.
I absolutely love traveling and have so many favorites! My top choice would be Israel, which I hold near and dear to my heart given my extended family lives there. I also loved traveling to Amsterdam and Paris.
I was born and raised in Westchester, New York.
I am currently involved in a wellness community with people from around the country. Prior to moving, I volunteered at an animal shelter and I hope to continue this work at a local shelter. I love getting involved in the community for both acts of service and personal wellness and I look forward to exploring these opportunities!
