Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tatum III "The care of deformities of the face, head or neck can be complicated. Facial appearance, speech, eating, hearing, and facial expression can all be impacted. Frequently collaboration with other providers such as speech and hearing specialists, dental specialists, and other surgeons may be required. These problems require thoughtful, coordinated, and comprehensive treatment in a caring environment."
