Top Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dead From COVID After Patient Coughs In His Face
Family reports Dr. Payman Simoni, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon known from "The Doctors", died after contracting COVID-19 from a patient.
Dr. Payman Simoni, a top Beverly Hills plastic surgeon featured on the Emmy award-winning daytime talk show “The Doctors”, has died of COVID-19 after an unknowingly infected patient coughed on him.
Dr. Simoni was highly sought after plastic surgeon. His staff screened patients so he could continue working through the pandemic. He did not want cosmetic procedures to wait.
Temperatures were taken and each patient had to fill out a questionnaire about her health. Sadly, that wasn’t allegedly enough to protect him.

Dr. Simoni’s death will likely add fuel to that fire.
