Tatum Ruess grew up in Southern California. She attended University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where she received her undergraduate degree in Biology, before moving back to Southern California where she attended Chapman University in Orange, CA to become a Physician Assistant. Tatum first started working in the medical field as a clinical research coordinator. She enjoyed it, but knew she wanted to have a greater impact on patients. She wanted the opportunity to help educate individuals in a way that enhances their care. Today, Tatum likes spending time with patients, listening to them, and helping provide treatment plans that can enhance their quality of life – both physically and mentally. Before she worked in Urology, she worked in psychiatry and addiction medicine, so she understands that mental health is an important part of all medical care. Tatum takes a patient-centered approach in caring for individuals and always considers the overall health and well-being of each individual patient. She also feels it is important for each patient to play an active role in their treatment plan and it’s important to check in with her patients throughout the course of treatment. Tatum works with patients so that they can make informed decisions about their care that will meet their own personal goals. Tatum is excited to be in Colorado where she can enjoy the great outdoors. She likes to ski and hike as well as enjoy water activities.
