Tabitha G. Temple, O.D.
Dr. Temple joined the practice in 1997, working for Dr. Richard Carman, and then purchased the practice in 2002. She has helped expand the services, including thorough disease screening, co-management of cataract surgery and LASIK, and various contact lenses. She also participates in local school screenings, is a member of the IOA and AOA, and serves as a clinical examiner with the National Board of Examiners in Optometry. She does speak Spanish, although it has been some time since she'd say she is fluent!
Dr. Temple is a Warsaw Community High School graduate and has been a Warsaw resident since birth. She, her husband Derek, and daughters: Madelyn and Claire. They are active in church and value family time with their cat Remington and dogs Zoe and Simone. They also enjoy local festivities and sporting events. Since the birth of Madelyn, Dr. Temple has decreased her office hours (as her goal is to avoid missing any more time with Madelyn and Claire as necessary) and is available for exams two days a week.
Dr. Temple desires that everyone be able to receive proper vision care and know that it is our priority to extend that care to you with respect and sincerity
