Patient Comments (5)
in Lake Jackson |
As a registered nurse I'm fussy about healthcare and I can say that Dr Templeton knows what caring means. Knows what empathy is and her actions speak louder than words. Great physician. Knows when to be sympathetic and when to be tough. But most of all she takes you and your cancer serious from the first visit and doesn't stop making sure everything is covered. Her office staff is supreme and are efficient. Not to mention always pleasant regardless of the crankiness of the patient.

Dr. Templeton was warm and caring doctor. She took whatever time necessary to listen to and answer my questions. She had a welcoming smile that let me know she cared. She was an artist at drawing/sketching to explain the problem(s) and procedure(s). Methodist Hospital really does have an awesome, knowledgeable doctor. Thank you Dr. Templeton for taking good care of me.
in Houston, Texas |
Dr. Templeton is a truly empathic and trustworthy physician. She listens, carefully weighs all conditions, and provides the best options available. She provides approved doctors accurate and complete histories of my very complicated problems. If I have a problem relaying this information to others, I refer him/her to Dr. Templeton for clarification of my complete medical history. I recommend Dr. Templeton to anyone valuing integrity, truth, skills, respect and empathy. To me she is perfect.

Dr. Templeton says...

Dr. Templeton specializes in the treatment of all breast diseases, specifically the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.  

Risk Assessment: If breast or ovarian cancer runs in your family, a risk assessment can help determine if you may need additional screening.

Monitoring: Whether you have a family history of breast cancer, carry the BRCA gene, had an abnormal mammogram in the past or a benign lump, we will determine the appropriate follow-up schedule and screening for your risk profile.

Detection: In women who have a breast lump or an abnormal mammogram, a breast biopsy may be needed.   Most can be done in our office with a local anesthetic to maximize your comfort during the procedure.

Surgical Treatment: If your biopsy shows cancer cells, most all women undergo surgery. Surgical procedures range from a minor lumpectomy to bilateral mastectomies.  She specializes in oncoplastic surgery and nipple sparing mastectomy which allow an improved appearance after cancer surgery.

We are committed to providing a personal, specialized treatment plan customized for the type and extent of your cancer using today's best practices and technologies in order to provide the best possible outcome.
