LA Laser and Skin Center Established 1997
In 1997, Dr. Daniel Taheri established the LA Laser and Skin Center, where he currently serves as the CEO and Chief Medical Director. In the beginning, his small dermatology office offered basic medical and cosmetic procedures. As business boomed, he soon added improved treatment options and made plans to open more facilities throughout Los Angeles. As Taheri and his team researched new office locations, they began to notice an unsettling trend. The tristate area was riddled with patient populations who would have to travel hours outside their hometowns just to be treated by a dermatologist. It was particularly problematic for patients in desperate need of lifesaving skin cancer treatment and screening. Troubled by this statistic, they abandoned plans to serve high income populations and instead restructured Taheri’s business model to work for underserved communities. In no time at all, LA Laser and Skin Center opened facilities in remote areas of California, Arizona, and Nevada.
