It was very bad. I have a leanMD appointment and Dr temkin associate just behaved with me like she is doing me a favor instead I am a paid member for the program. When I asked her a question about the program she started saying her next patient is due in 1 min. Literally,I was barely inside for 5 mins. She couldnt answer my questions without intimidating me. I am paying money for their services and she treated me like a bug on the floor.

I have been seeing Dr. Temkin for several years now, and find his approach to medicine and health care to have an excellent balance of patient education and understanding, along with diagnosing and treating conditions. He also has a well established network of specialists in the tri-valley area in cases where this might be needed.

Yearly Annual check up - Great Doctor and one of the best doctors in bay area. Takes time to review the patient records and explain about the lab records going over line by line. He always listens without interrupting and he lets you take as much time as you need to explain your situation. The front office staff are friendly.

Dr. Temkin has been my 'gate keeper' doctor for about 25 years and I am well pleased with his, and his offices', prompt attention. My wife and I individually see Dr. Temkin on average 3 or 4 times per year and are happy to know he is knowledgable about our histories and conservative in his medical recommendations. My last visit was to seek his suggestion for a specialist and his recommendations have always been excellent.
