Elena Forster, PA-C

Elena Forster, PA-C, born and raised in Russia, recently moved with her family to the Rogue Valley from Pasadena, California. Over the past fifteen years she acquired expertise in all areas of dermatology, practicing in medical (adult and pediatric) and cosmetic dermatology. 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 is a graduate of Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. She enjoys research and working on the cutting edge, and was listed as a sub-investigator on eight separate clinical trials conducted under the umbrella of Pasadena’s well-regarded Huntington Hospital.

In many ways her move north to Oregon has felt like a homecoming because the Rogue Valley so closely resembles her home in southern Russia, where she graduated from medical school prior to coming to the United States. 

Elena and her family are enjoying settling into their new lives – 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 European cities or engaged in the hunt for the perfect Tuesday night taco truck!
