Finding the Right Skin Care Doctor

I need help finding the right skin care doctor!
LA Laser and Skin Center was founded on the premise that everyone deserves quality dermatological care close to home.
Dr. Daniel Taheri established LA Laser and Skin Center in 1997. In the beginning, the small, single office practice offered basic medical and cosmetic treatments. 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 who desperately needed lifesaving skin cancer treatment and screening. Troubled by this statistic, they abandoned their original expansion plans 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.
Today, LA Laser and Skin Center is among the top care providers of medical and cosmetic dermatology in the western United States. There are currently 23 facilities, and possibilities for expansion are on the horizon. With the remote LA Laser and Skin Center locations now well established, Taheri and his team have set their sights for growth in denser populations. Many of the offices are also expecting to add even more treatments to their list of offerings, including CoolSculpting, Vbeam Laser Treatment, and Ultherapy. Some locations already house full service plastic surgery centers, with procedures such as breast augmentation and liposuction performed daily. LA Laser and Skin Center also recently launched an all new telemedicine program for busy patients on the go.
Telemedicine is a cutting edge way for patients to seek treatment and get screened without having to set foot in a doctor’s office. LA Laser and Skin Center uses the telemedicine application, HealthLens, to treat patients online. It’s simple and easy, even for people who aren’t tech savvy. Patients can quickly create a profile of their medical history and then upload photos of a problem area. Our telemedicine team will respond within 48 hours with a diagnosis and treatment plan, including any necessary prescriptions. Patients are also able to message the doctor with specific questions about their condition, and they remain in touch with a specialist even after they are diagnosed. Most importantly, HealthLens takes certain forms of health insurance. In many cases, seeing a doctor through this online platform is more affordable than visiting an urgent care.
While finding the right skin care doctor can be stressful, LA Laser and Skin Center makes it as comfortable and easy as possible. Whether you visit us in one of our 23 locations or opt for treatment via our telemedicine program, we are excited to welcome new patients to our practice.
