    He has been a doctor since before you were born.

    1)He has been a doctor since before you were born.

    Is it okay to say this when I mean "He became a doctor before you were born and continues to be so till now"?

    And again a similar sentence" He has been a doctor since before 1970". Is this sentence also okay?
