Dr. Lee W Tempel has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr Tempel A+

This review is from when Dr Lee Tempel was part of Mercy Clinic Neorology: Dr Tempel is great. Very patient, very thorough and not rushing to recommend DBS right away. He listens very attentively so he knows where to adjust medication for the most effective outcome. His personal assistant for many years, Cindy, has always been very responsive. If she does not have an answer, she will contact the patient with the update that she is working on getting your question answered. The front window staff member is abrupt and seems to not care about the patient (the customer, who pays her salary. If you are 10-15 minutes late, you have to reschedule, but if they have overbooked Dr. Tempel I have waited for 2-3 hours on more than one occasion. The staff goes home for the day and you are there with Dr. Tempel and the janitor.

We are also disappointed that Dr. Tempel is no longer available at the Mercy Neur. Clinic. He is very hands on in his approach, spends as much time as necessary with his patients, exploring ALL their Parkinson,s issues, then outlines a detailed treatment plan for you. He will also see you more often (every 2-3 months) if needed. You have to wait longer than normal at his office, but the wait is worth it.
