Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Temple Jr "I am a gynecologist who sees women of all ages for their routine gynecolgic care. My practice focuses on the care and treatment of the mature woman in the management of perimenopausal and menopausal problems, hormone replacement, pelvic prolapse and urinary incontinence. I am a very experienced gynecologic surgeon who emphasizes the minimally invasive vaginal approach whenever possible. I emphasize respect for all patients, quality of care, and cost efficiency in medicine."
