I must say hands down,Microphone drop she is the “BEST� Neurologist I ever had.I must say furthermore her students the ones that I’ve seen are gonna be a force to reckon with the ones that paid attention. However Dr.Templer from the time you walk in she greets you she just kind hearted and gets to the meat and potatoes she asked about my Epilesy and was thorough She asked if any medical records it was a lot and that was the first visit I’ve been going for years now. Let’s not forget whenever it doesn’t matter If you have a seizure make sure you send it what happened through my chart and she will definitely get right back to you next day. Also she she tries to get you in depending on how bad seizure was and she monitors your medication very very well and your levels and you’re all around health and your day-to-day she’s just a all-around Neurologist especially dealing with epilepsy patient. Also she works with your primary so both of them can know what’s going on with you yeah definitely 10 stars if they have more she definitely would get them.
