    Professional Statement

    Thank you for choosing Dr. John Tumeh!

    Dr. Tumeh is all about getting to know his patients; he listens to their problems, delves into their struggles and arrives at root issues and sources of conflict. He explores new ways of overcoming challenges and assists patients in developing more effective coping. Dr Tumeh also encourages his patients to maintain mental and physical health with regular exercise and good nutrition, all to help maintain a healthy psyche.

    After growing up in a family of medical professionals, Dr. Tumeh decided to try something new and study economics. But after only studying theory, he missed factual studies. He decided to start studying physics & chemistry, and the rest is history. Dr. Tumeh started his own practice only a year after finishing his residency and he's been serving patients ever since. Starting his own practice was a priority for Dr. Tumeh because he knew it would allow him to use his business acumen as well as have an impact on his community.

    Dr. Tumeh's practice, Foundation Psychiatry, is an Atlanta gem because patients receive both "talk therapy" and medication assistance all in one caring environment, rare in this day and age. Dr. Tumeh continues his passion for healing in the corporate world. He promotes mental health benefits for employees and their family members because he believes that when you make workplace mental health a priority, it leads to a more fulfilling corporate culture. 

    He also has spent his free time volunteering within free-clinics, and even helped start one in Pittsburgh while finishing up his residency. His favorite movie is Braveheart, and enjoys cheering on The Celtics whenever he can. 



    Dr. Tumeh has vast experience treating the full spectrum of psychiatric disorders including but not limited to Mood (e.g. Depression, Bipolar Disorder), Anxiety, Personality Disorders, Addiction, Psychotic Disorders, Eating disorders, Geriatric Psychiatry, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Dementia and more.
