Elena Forster, PA-C, born and raised in the former USSR, moved with her family to the Rogue Valley from Pasadena, California.  In many ways her move north to Oregon has felt like a homecoming because the Rogue Valley so closely resembles her hometown, where she graduated from medical school prior to coming to the United States. As a member of our team, she serves Medford, Grants Pass, Ashland, and Northern California.

Elena is a graduate of Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA.  She acquired expertise in all areas of dermatology, practicing in medical (adult and pediatric) and cosmetic dermatology since 2005. While Elena particularly enjoys medical dermatology and the challenges posed by difficult cases, she feels very passionate about treating children with skin diseases and offering support to them, and their families.

Elena and her family enjoy gardening, cooking, hiking with their Weimaraner, and sampling local restaurants.  Their favorite pastime is exploring, and they are happiest when wandering the streets of ancient cities.
