Head and shoulders above the rest

My 80-year old mother saw Dr. William Tatum in Neurology last week. She suffered a fall at home, resulting in several broken bones and a brain injury.

From the minute he walked in the door, Dr. Tatum was
positive, upbeat and professional. He spent time understanding her history and making prioritized recommendations for her care moving forward. She has Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson's Disease, and he took care to understand the device and make sure it was functioning as it should be.

While many of the caregivers we met were caring and professional, he stood head and shoulders above. Thanks!
