Geoffrey Loman, MD
Dr. Geoffrey Loman’s journey to Identity Medical Group began when he graduated from medical school at UC Davis in 1980 and entered the Residency Program at VCMC. After completing his training in Family Practice, he accepted a Fellowship in Family Medicine and spent the year continuing his own learning while teaching the interns and residents in the program.
He began private practice as a solo physician. In 1995 he joined Drs. Larsen, Dodge and Garrison, friends and colleagues from VCMC residency, in Brent Street Family Practice.
His wife is a Psychology professor at CSU Channel Islands and Child Development instructor at Ventura college. She has taught Parenting for the Ventura Unified School District and for Community Memorial Hospital. She can be seen walking the family’s ill-behaved dogs all over Ventura. The Lomans have three children who are smart, funny and never cease to amaze their parents. The oldest daughter, Rebecca, is completing a Family Practice Residency at Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento. The younger daughter, Hailey, is an artist living in Los Angeles. She is a sculptor and also runs a nonprofit archive for art books and performance artifacts. Their son, Hailey’s twin brother, is a computer analyst and programmer in Santa Barbara. He coaches and plays water polo for the club program at UCSB.
Some of Dr. Loman’s most memorable moments as a physician have included being a part of the County Search and Rescue team, helping provide emergency care to those injured in remote regions. He has spent many weeks over the years in Roatan, Honduras, providing healthcare for a small clinic serving the local population. It has been particularly rewarding to work side-by-side with his daughter and son-in-law, bringing medical care to this underserved population. Dr. Loman has served as president of the Ventura County Chapter of the American Heart Assn. and has been involved in the Surfers Medical Assn.
He has been an avid surfer since his teenage years, but has moved on to a standup paddle board. If the waves are not cooperating, he will paddle his way through the Keys out into the harbor, sharing the morning with the sea lions and the dolphins.
Dr. Loman originally began training to become a teacher. Although he decided to make medicine his committed career path, he has found that engaging with his patients, teaching and sharing their lives has been indescribably gratifying these many years.
