Physician Supervision--Keeping the "Medical" in Medical Spas

Posted By American Med Spa Association, Friday, January 9, 2015

Physician supervision is a key component to running a successful and legally compliant medical spa business. As physicians flock to medical spas in the hopes of making additional or alternative income, many overlook the fact that a certain level of supervision is still required for all medical treatment. At the end of the day, the physician is responsible for every patient and, if something goes awry, the physician’s license is on the line.
First and foremost, it is crucial to know which medical spa services require physician supervision and what constitutes an adequate amount of supervision in your particular state, because laws and regulations vary.
