Never forget your dreams!

Never forget your dreams!

As a little girl, I was awed the moment our family doctor came in the room. This was a man who could make me feel better.  Just by seeing him I was on the road to recovery. In his office, I would ogle his glass cabinets filled with silvery objects. The use of these objects was left to my imagination. The seed was planted and I was hooked on the idea of becoming a doctor.  However, life had already made other plans for me.  I was married and had three children before the age of twenty-one. A career in medicine took a back seat and became only a dream.  It was a dream that was unattainable in the near future.  I loved my children so much that nine years after having my third child, I had my fourth.  I was the Campfire Girl leader, Den mother, Team mom, and transporter for many years.

The dream never faded away. At age 40, I returned to college.  I just wanted to get a degree and do something interesting with the second stage of my life.  After earning an AA degree in business at a two-year college, my direction was still unclear.  But I had fallen in love with Biology after acing the course to satisfy my science requirement.

One day, my husband asked me, "Why don't you become a doctor?"  At that moment the dream that was put on hold so long ago became a reality.

Now, here I am, Dr. Jean Forman.  The silvery objects have become plastic now and I’m the one walking into the room to make people feel better!  After 10 years as a clinical physician and professor at USC School of Medicine, I started a practice with my youngest son, Dr. Todd Forman.  We came to Newport Beach to be close to my other son, Dr. Scott Forman who is a successful orthopedic surgeon.

We have followed in the steps of my family doctor by practicing old-fashioned family medicine with up-to-date comprehensive medical care.
