Dr Templeton is the best doctor my son has ever seen. We have been going to see him since the office opened. He will see my son any time even when he doesn't have appointment and which ever doctor is on call after hours will call you back within 10 minutes.

Dr. Templeton has been excellent to my son and our family. He is responsive to our needs and has even called us back at home on the weekend when we had an emergency. We very much trust him in caring for our child with special needs.

I wouldn't want him to care of my sick dog .
