Daniel Taheri , MD

Education : UCLA School of Medicine

SPECIALITY : Medical and Cosmetic Dermatology, Laser Surgery and Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Daniel P. Taheri, M.D. is the CEO of LA Laser and Skin Center, a highly sought after surgeon who has successfully performed thousands of MOHS micrographic skin cancer surgeries in Southern California, and was the Dermatologist to the Stars at the Academy Awards in Los Angeles. He is a graduate of the UCLA Medical School and is the winner of their most prestigious award, the “Valentine Honor” award.

His bright beginning; however, was just the start of his purposeful journey, as he has also authored the book “Practical Management of Skin Cancer,” which is now used in medical schools around the country for training purposes. It covers detailed guidelines for diagnosing and treating various skin cancers, and even features 200 pages of full-color illustrations. In addition to the book, he has authored over 25 articles which have been published in various scientific journals. This showcases his fervent desire to educate both other doctors and his patients on skin conditions of all kinds, especially skin cancer. Dr. Taheri is a nationally recognized speaker for Botox cosmetics as well as several other laser companies. He has also shared his vast expertise on Botox and other technologies with physicians across the country. Much of Dr. Taheri’s passion revolves around the latest technological, nutritional and pharmaceutical advancements, which he employs as a means of helping his patients obtain the skin they deserve to have. His belief is that no one should have to suffer the stigma that often goes along with a skin condition.
