Phi Beta Kappa Wake Forest University Raised on dairy farm, very familiar with picking cotton, priming tobacco, hauling hay, hog killing, and milking cows by hand. Christian and attend Millers Creek Methodist and Scripture based bible study. The interactions of the various scriptures remind me of those of the body. Professors guide the study of the body. The Holy Spirit reveals some of the mysteries of the Bible. Sick people should NOT be evangelized (unless they ask for it). Love travel, fishing, golf, science fiction, and knowledge for its own sake Still a seeker of wisdom "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Templeton "Extra time spent on history and exam saves the patient $$$$$, time, and many needless labs and radiographic procedures.  I'm not a short order cook;  it takes time to diagnose.  Some of my toughest diagnoses have been made while chatting with the patient about non-medical issues.  I explain what's wrong with you--or what's right.... if I forget-- Ask!  If you don't understand what I have told you, it's probably both our faults. Tell me.  

Finally, if you are not pleased with how you are treated, let me or my nurse know.  If the problem is not or can't be fixed, it's time to get a different doc."

Patient Comments (2)
in North Wilkesboro, NC |
Dr. Templeton was my mother's physician for years...always there when she needed him. My mother developed dementia, and it was hard to get her to his office, but he and his staff worked with me to get her the medications she needed. He is what I call an "old school" doctor. Dr. Templeton is knowledgeable about all fields of medicine, not just a specialty. My mother lived to be 94 years old, and I credit Dr. Templeton's excellent care for her longevity. His staff are friendly and helpful.

He listen to me. He answered my questions using terms that I could understand. I left his office feeling good about a treatment plan that would work for me.
