The state and federal governments and medical boards make or enforce laws that are of great significance to patient safety.
Dr. Teitelbaum has been a stalwart of lobbying in his state legislature, Congress, and the FDA for the benefit of plastic surgery patients. These activities have included:
As president of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons I advocated legislation that would protect patients from unqualified doctors, require insurance coverage of birth defects, and mandate accredited operating rooms.

We’re Still Open… well, sort of.
While we have not resumed regularly scheduled office hours, Vicki and Dr. Teitelbaum are nearby and available for past and current patients at 310.315.1121.
While we are all sheltering at home, Dr. Teitelbaum is offering everyone the same phone and video consultations he has always done for out-of-town patients. He expects to be operating again soon.
