Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Tatum has helped me so much after nearly 6 years of going from doctor to doctor with mixed answers (or zero answers) regarding my seizure disorder/neurological spells. He is compassionate, kind, and truly cares for his patients. He doesn't rush through your appointment and genuinely listens to your concerns. Dr. Tatum is an absolutely wonderful doctor, and I cannot express my gratitude towards him and his team enough.

My visits with Dr. Tatum are very good. He listens and answers/explains my every question with normal human language (not Dr. lingo that almost no one knows; unless you are also a Dr). I would definitely recommend him to any one that I know who is looking for a specialist in the neurological field.
