There is no such thing as an owner/doctor medical spa relationship.

The law states that "Non physicians cannot own or operate a clinic without a physician" However, you also cannot make a deal with the doctor to be the director and operate the clinic.

If this doctor chooses to leave he can take all the clients and leave you without a business. HIPA will not allow you to have access to any of the patients.

So, you medical spa is done. I suggest you start a day spa.

A non-doctor CAN participate with a physician in the running and income of a medical spa as an employee, even though the non-physician can't be a true co-owner in California except in very limited circumstances. There are also other ways to be involved with investment, referred to as management-services-agreements or MSAs.

Be careful about relying on non-expert opinions you find on the internet. You should confirm all opinions here with your own attorney, even this message. Here are some excellent medispa knowledgeable attorney specialists that I use as as a national consultant and licensed medispa broker:
