Plastic surgeon Beverly Hills, who appeared on “The Doctors,” died of COVID-19 after suffering from the disease when a maskless woman coughed on him while he was injecting a lip on her, according to reports.
Payman Simoni, 50, wore a mask last month as he took an optional step on a woman who completed a COVID questionnaire and checked her temperature even though she had not been tested for the virus, TMZ reported.
She contacted the doctor’s office a few days later to report that she later tested positive for a fatal error, according to the outlet.
Simoni, who went into quarantine, was subsequently hospitalized at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was put on a ventilator after a number of symptoms, including shortness of breath, according to TMZ.
Sources told the outlet that Simoni was finally in a medically induced coma before dying of a brain hemorrhage on Friday.
“The shocking thing is that he is in good health,”; said Katy Amiri-Younesi. A family friend told KCAL, “He’s a doctor. I called him when I had COVID. What is he ordering me to do? “
He added, “He’s a doctor and he’s got the whole deal.”
Simoni recently appeared in the next episode of “Gown and Out in Beverly Hills,” where he performed the same process as Patrik Simpson reported TMZ.
The patient told the outlet that he had been ordered to undergo a COVID and negative test beforehand.
