Tampa dermatologist Forman dermatology and skin cancer instituteIn the middle of election season, one hot-button issue both presidential candidates seem to be talking about is Medicare and medical benefits for seniors.

“We are always accepting new Medicare patients, and we always will,” says the Dr. Seth Forman, a Tampa dermatologist. “It is our duty to support the people who have made our country what it is today.”

Forman makes regular visits to local assisted living facilities and rehabilitation centers, checking out the residents and addressing their skincare needs and worries. He says routine care for the elderly is critical to their standard of living.

Forman’s “house” calls to seniors at assisted living facilities and retirement communities have become so popular that they have been featured on the ABC and NBC affiliates in Tampa.

Once a week, the Tampa dermatologist hits the road and leaves Forman Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute in Carrollwood to make various stops around Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. By visiting these senior care facilities, Forman ensures that residents will not only get quality care, but they also avoid waiting rooms, van rides and traffic.

“We can learn a lot from our elders, and it is our duty to preserve their quality of life,” says Forman. “I love talking to them and listening to their stories.  I love it when I get to visit with couples that have been married for over 50 years.”

In addition to making routine visits to retirement communities, Forman has become the go-to dermatologist in Tampa. In 2011, Forman made an appearance on the nationally syndicated show The Doctors, as well as many local morning and news shows to discuss the importance of proper skincare and his groundbreaking treatments for skin cancer and skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema and vitiligo.

Assisted living facilities, retirement homes and nursing facilities interested in requesting visits from Tampa dermatologist, Dr. Seth Forman, can call (813) 960-2400.
