My first visit with Dr Temple was in 1987 he remained my gynecologist. I would see other physicians in the practice during my pregnancy but out of all the physicians Dr Temple was The BEST. He has a great bedside manner, he listens to your concerns and act on them asap. I never had any complaint about him. He is OUTSTANDING. When I moved to Raleigh, NC in 2008 I returned to Wilmington for my yearly physical until I was satisfied with a gynecologist in Raleigh.
