Meet John Layke and Payman Danielpour of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group

Today we’d like to introduce you to John Layke and Payman Danielpour.

John and Payman, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
When Dr. Danielpour and I started practice in 2009, we took emergency call at the hospital. We noticed families would bring their child who sustained a laceration, they would wait hours to see a plastic surgeon, and many emergency room doctors would stitch them up and send them to us for follow up.

Many times, it was a horrible experience for the parents, as well as for the child, and the scars were subpar. We decided that we would start our own 24-hour emergency laceration service, where an injured child/adult could be seen in the comfort of our own office, often within 30-45 minutes, and the scar would be managed until it looked perfect. I initially created our own webpage, wrote the content, made brochures, and created a poster that was placed on several mini-billboards strategically located throughout the city. Now we have several plastic surgeons who are on call 24/7.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
For a while, Dr. Danielpour and myself were the only plastic surgeons involved. This became very time-consuming and we weren’t able to cover every night.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group – what should we know?

As specialists in this area, Stitch MD plastic surgeons are highly-trained and experienced in suture methods that help to minimize scars. And the best part?

You avoid the hours of waiting in the emergency room sitting next to the 4 people that are coughing, vomiting and spreading germs. At Stitch MD, you are seen promptly in the office, in a comfortable environment. You also avoid the ridiculous emergency room bills that are often several thousand dollars just to be SEEN. At Stitch MD, you are charged a single fee which includes the consultation, the procedure, as well as multiple follow-ups, that is a quarter of the price of an ER visit.
