James R. Morrow, M.D.


Dr. Jim Morrow was the first physician to practice on the Northside Hospital Forsyth campus in Cumming, Georgia. Opening the practice in November, 1998, his practice quickly became a “go-to” practice for Forsyth County residents.

As with that practice, Morrow Family Medicine will be known for its open access policy, same-day appointments and very popular morning walk-in hour.

Making people feel welcome and well cared for is a cornerstone to a successful family practice, and you will find these qualities at MFM.

Dr. Morrow’s special areas of interest in medicine are sports medicine, episodic care (care of acute problems and illnesses), chronic disease management and urgent care. He has served as team doctor for various high schools in his twenty-five years of practice and currently is the team physician at Forsyth Central High School in Cumming.
