James Tatum, M.D.

Board Certified in General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care

"Growing up in a family of machinists and cabinet makers I discovered that I shared that same passion for working with my hands but I also wanted a career in which I could help others. I chose medicine and general surgery to combine these two interests and work with people in a direct way."
