Scott Forman

Scott FormanI trained as a Neuro-ophthalmologist and taught residents in Ophthalmology, Neurology, Pediatrics and Neurosurgery. I practiced at Westchester Medical Center, the main teaching hospital of NY Medical College for 28 years.  I have had a lifelong interest in many different healing forms and studied craniosacral and visceral therapy as well.

I am convinced that functional medicine, a holistic branch of medicine that joins nutritional biochemistry and genomics is the future of medicine.

I have diverse interests and enjoy playing cello and guitar, swimming and pilates and fine art. I have two daughters; Zaria, a talented artist in Brooklyn and Leila, a nurse practitioner midwife, in Cambridge, MA.
