About Me

“Whether a patient has been diagnosed with breast cancer, has an abnormal mammogram, has recently discovered a lump or simply needs a second opinion, my goal is to provide personalized care and promote breast health for life. I am there for my patients from the beginning and through survivorship.”

Whether you’ve recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, have an abnormal mammogram, or simply feel a lump, Dr. Sandra Templeton is a leading breast surgeon who specializes in the treatment of women with breast diseases. You will be personally evaluated by Dr. Templeton and an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs will be created. Prompt access to treatment will be provided to assure the best possible outcome. Dr. Templeton loves teaching her patients about their illness giving them comfort and empowerment through knowledge. She specializes in minimally invasive procedures and newer breast surgeries that have a more cosmetically pleasing outcome, including the nipple sparing mastectomy, a mastectomy where all of the skin, nipple, and areola are saved.

Breast care and breast cancer treatment is a multistep process that requires coordinated medical treatment from various specialized areas. We will develop a treatment plan in consultation with you and your team of medical specialist that fits your individual diagnosis. We are privileged to have patients entrust us with their medical care and allow us to be an integral part of their health care journey.
