Medical Spa Business Forum > ER Doc Supervising PA in Cosmetics

Can an ER doc (which has the certification for laser use) supervise a PA working at a medspa in the state of California? The PA would be performing laser procedures only (laser hair removal/laser tattoo removal/laser acne resurfacing). The ER doc is employed by the medspa to act as a supervising physician (co-signing charts; no procedures done). Please provide thoughts and advice.....

A doc can supervise a PA to perform procedures however the physician legally can't be employed by a medispas if it is not owned by another physician. In California a Medical spa needs to be owned 51 percent by a physician. There is good info on the medical board of California website.
