Tampa dermatologist focuses on seniors with ‘house calls,’ visits to assisted living facilities
Medical benefits are commonly debated in today’s society, especially when it comes to supporting seniors. One Tampa dermatologist is continuing his care of seniors in the area with visits to assisted living facilities and retirement communities.
“It’s our duty to support those who made our country into what it is today,” says Dr. Seth Forman. “Therefore, we are always accepting new Medicare patients, and we always will.”
Through his retirement community house calls program, Forman visits assisted living facilities and rehabilitation centers to meet with residents. During his visits, he asses their skincare needs and worries.
The Tampa dermatologist makes 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.
“Routine care for seniors is critical to maintaining their standard of living,” says the Tampa dermatologist. “I’m honored and happy to visit with them and help them stay healthy.”
Forman’s “house” calls to assisted living facilities and retirement communities have been featured on the ABC and NBC affiliates in Tampa.
In addition to making routine visits to retirement communities, Forman has become the go-to dermatologist in Tampa. In 2011, he appeared on the nationally syndicated “The Doctors,” and he has been featured on many local morning and news shows to 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 Dr. Seth Forman can call (813) 960-2400.
