Dr. Tatum is the best doctor! He is patient and excellent at listening. He inspires confidence that his treatment plan is the best choice, but that if some drugs aren't effective, alternatives are available. We have never had a doctor as knowledgeable and as expert at understanding and delivering the best care options.

I usually cry after I leave Tatum's office because of the extremely kind, helpful and overall wonderful care I receive from Tatum and his entire staff. I have a daughter with multiple rare syndromes and many other illnesses, so we have experienced hundreds of different Doctors offices, no one compares to the near perfection we receive at Dr Tatum's office. So, yes...it makes me cry to be treated in such a manner of kindness, concern, professionalism and human kindness. I thank God for this wonderful Dr and staff that are making our lives better by the wonderful way they treat us!!!

Dr Tatum is very personable and kind. Although I don't need to go in often, he already knows my history so I don't have to explain it to him every time, like I had to do with a previous provider. I appreciate his knowledge, thoroughness and helpfulness. I have recommended him many times to my friends and family.

Dr. Tatum is by far the best general practitioner that I have been to in the 25 years I have been an adult. I went to him after moving to the area a couple of years ago after I had a bad experience with another area doctor. I just love how Dr. Tatum really listens and explains everything in detail that I can understand. He always asks about how I am feeling and if I have any concerns with my medicine or health condition, even if I come in just for simple lab work. I also don't have to wait for more than 10 minutes which is excellent because I hate it when you set an appointment way in advance and then they keep you waiting well past your appointment time.
