What People Say About Dr. Michael Temkin, DO

We have been seeing Dr. Temkin for years. Dr. Temkin always takes the time to full understand your situation and offers all options. He has an excellent memory for family history and takes that into consideration. He is also willing to learn about something if he is not familiar with it. If test results aren't available at your appointment, he will call you with test results even if everything is fine, in case you have any questions.

Always great, confirmed minor issue, provided referrals to specialists. Dr. Mike has a busy practice, but it's not noticeable. Quick appointment, spends more than enough time, I never feel rushed.

I've been a patient of Dr. Temkin for about 10 years or more now. He is always very attentive, and offers his expertise and opinion in a very concerned way. If I need to see a specialist, he will recommend one, and if I need medication, he always gives me the pros\cons and alternatives. He's very easy to talk to and has an excellent "bedside manner" - he really makes me feel that he cares about my health.
