While no longer patients, my wife and I both loved Doctor Temkin. He was always friendly, professional and really cared about us. We were heartbroken when we had to leave his care!*
I’ve been seeing Dr. Temkin now for over 2 yrs. He is what I want in a general physician. Patient and takes the time to answer my questions and monitor my health preventively with a strategy. I have since brought my two sons as well and they are now patients there too. *
Dr. T. has been my primary care for 15+ years. He is the best. Steps away from the charts and computer to discuss what the numbers may mean and relates them to his understanding of my health generally. Very savvy and very practical. *
Dr. Temkin is an excellent primary care physician and I would recommend him and his staff to anyone. Go in for a physical, and he will not only relay your test results but explain what they all mean so you have a full understanding of everything. You get the feeling that he is every bit as concerned about your health as you are yourself. *
Dr. Temkin is a very professional, personable, knowledgeable doctor. I have been going to him for 20+ years and have never been dissatisfied with his service. He saved my life when I first started going to him, and I think that’s the best thing to say about any doctor. Thanks, Dr. Temkin *
The Lean MD method has been incredibly successful for me. I have tried Jenny Craig and other programs, however have found Dr. Temkin’s program to not only be more successful in helping me lose weight but also have longer results at maintaining my weight loss. *
