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.

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.
