Meet the Team

James R. Morrow, MD – Family Physician Dr. 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. 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 many years of practice and currently is the team physician at North Forsyth High School in Cumming. 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. A 2004 winner of the Healthcare Information Management Systems Society’s (HIMSS) Davies Award for Excellence in EMR Implementation, he was also recognized as the 2006 Physician IT Leader of the Year by HIMSS. He served four years as a commissioner on the Certification Commission for Healthcare Information Technology (CCHIT). Dr. Morrow serves as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Georgia Health Information Exchange (GHIE) and is a member of the Advisory Board for Health for the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG-Health). In 2014, Dr. Morrow was awarded the Steve Bloom Award by the Cumming-Forsyth Chamber of Commerce as Entrepreneur of the Year, and he also received a Phoenix Award from the Metro Atlanta Chamber as Community Leader of the Year. In 2015, Morrow Family Medicine was voted the “Best of Forsyth” in the Family Medicine category.
