John Shum, MD
Obstetrics, Gynecology, & Family Planning

I grew-up in Amarillo, Texas. I received an undergraduate degree at Baylor University in Chemistry, and attended Medical school in Galveston @ UTMB. During Family Medicine training in Tyler at UTHCT, I encountered the love of my life--my wife. She encouraged and supported my enjoyment of delivering babies through additional training in OB-GYN at John Peter Smith in Fort Worth. During OB-GYN residency, we had our first two daughters. We returned to East Texas serving at the Family Care Center from 2007-2013, and having our third daughter.

I briefly practiced in Longview at Wellness Pointe. In 2016, we expanded our family with the adoption of our 2 boys and I returned to Tyler with the Family Circle of Care.
