Dr. Jim Morrow has practiced Family Medicine for 33 years. Dr. Morrow graduated from Clemson University and the University of South Carolina School Of Medicine. He completed his residency in Family Medicine in Anderson, South Carolina in 1985.
He moved to Georgia in 1993 and to Cumming in 1998. He moved to what was then the Baptist North Hospital campus when the first medical office building opened in November 1998. Northside Hospital bought it a few years later.
In 2009 he left his former practice because of his concern over the lost ability to control how patients were treated by staff and office. He wanted to open his own practice but had an 18 month non-compete. While waiting for his non-compete to expire, Dr. Morrow worked in healthcare IT as Medical Director for an EHR company for two years. He then opened Morrow Family Medicine in 2011.
Dr. Morrow has a expertise in healthcare IT. He implemented electronic records in his office in December 1998, and won a national award for that implementation in 2004. He was named Physician IT Leader of the Year for his work traveling and preaching the gospel of healthcare IT. Dr. Morrow stayed very active in the healthcare IT world in Georgia and nationally until the practice started getting busy and he didn’t have the time anymore. He received the Community Leader of the Year Award from the Healthcare IT Leadership Summit and Metro Atlanta Chamber for his work in Healthcare IT.
Morrow Family Medicine has grown incredibly, and Dr. Morrow considers himself very blessed. He was named the Steve Bloom Entrepreneur of the Year by the Cumming-Forsyth Chamber for his work at Morrow Family Medicine and also the charity run by his wife Peggie and him, the Forsyth BYOT Benefit. The Forsyth BYOT Benefit has raised over $300,000 in six years for students who do not have the technology they need for school, such as computers or home internet access.
Morrow Family Medicine now has two physicians, three physician assistants and two nurse practitioners serving patients in two locations, Cumming and Milton. Morrow Family Medicine has won the Best of Forsyth Award each of the five years it has been given, and the Best of North Atlanta Award ever since the Milton office opened three years ago. Both offices maintain a walk-in hour every weekday from 7:30 am to 8:30 am so that there is never a day when you can’t be seen if you have an issue, need a refill, have a question, etc.
