I am writing this to warn people about Dr. Payman Simoni, as I wish others had warned me. I went to him to fix another doctor's mistakes. But Dr. Simoni made things much, much worse.
I needed fat grafting, but instead Dr. Simoni removed fat from the damaged parts. He not only made it look worse, but now I have functional damage, causing extreme and constant pain. I cried in Simoni's office when telling him of the damage the other doctor did to me. You would think he would be careful when he operated on me. But it was as if he paid no attention to what I told him and did a surgery that was totally inappropriate for me. And then after seeing photos of the damage he not only didn't apologize, but he then started posting ridiculous lies about me on the internet.
When he saw my negative review of him on a doctor rating site, he posted several times that I was a former employee who stole drugs from him. I then found two other posts of his from 2008, a year before I ever met him, where he said exactly the same thing about two other women who gave him negative reviews. And when I exposed that fact, he then came up with a new lie to post about me, that I was extorting money from him. Now he is posting that I am a drug addict.
Also, when he saw my negative review of him, he called me and threatened me with physical harm if I did not remove those posts. I took him seriously enough to call the police, and I removed the posts. But I decided to repost them, and let everyone know that if anything happens to me, he is responsible.
In my opinion, this man is incompetent and behaves like a sociopath. He lies so blatantly, and thinks nothing of threatening someone with violence when they do something he doesn't like. And I am not the only one who has had a bad experience with him. Here are other posts I found about him on the internet:
"BAD DOCTOR, bait and switch, below average surgery, tricky office, dishonest surgeon, need I say more. Faclifts he does are probably the worst in LA. He hides behind the Beverly Hills address to cover up the sham that is his practice. AVOID at all cost."
"I now look like a distorted freak. I am extremely upset and would never recommend him. Horrible".
"I basically paid this doctor to ruin my nose and my life. Please say away from him. I wish every day that I had."
"Going to Dr. Simoni for my nose job was the worst mistake I ever made. "
"Don't waste your time going to this arrogant fool".
"His horrible surgical skills are no match for his horrible bedside manner."
And even though Simoni has only been in California a short time, he already has a malpractice judgement against him in Small Claims Court in Los Angeles County. You can get the info on their website, but you have to pay for it, so I copied and pasted it here:
