Growing up in Iran under the Shah, Pejman Salimpour had dreams of becoming a lawyer. But he was discouraged by his physician father, who explained that Jews didn’t get very far in legal careers in Iran. Instead, after coming to America at 16, on the last commercial flight before the revolution, Salimpour became a doctor, expecting to spend his career taking care of children.

It hasn’t quite worked out that way. For the last two years, Pejman Salimpour has received that legal education � the problem is, he’s received it through his medical career, fighting for his right to see his patients and their right to see him. He thinks he may have won, finally. But he isn’t claiming victory yet. He’s learned the system too well to draw any such conclusion.
