Dr. Tatum and his assistant, Isla, are always amazing. They are both so easy to talk to. Dr. Tatum never makes me feel rushed, and seems completely focused on me while he is in the room. He is one of the best doctors I have ever been to.I am also always impressed by the people who work the reception area. They are always pleasant and respectful...even when I have seen people be rude to them. None of them seem to have a chip on their shoulder which is so refreshing considering what they probably deal with sometimes.

On the contrary, he actually takes the time to listen to my health concerns while providing professional guidance and remedies. Not once did I feel rushed. It was the best experience I've ever had when seeing a doctor.
