Physician

When she started medical school, Dr. Jenny Temps thought that she would never want to work in urgent care or emergency medicine. “However, I was ultimately drawn to this field because I like the variety,” she explains. “You get to see everyone, young patients, older patients, men, women…I really like the cross-section of care and the fast pace that urgent care provides.”

Dr. Temps also enjoys the challenges that practicing in urgent care offers. “You often don’t know the patient. So you really have to work hard to find out what’s going on in a limited amount of time. It’s a challenge, but one I really enjoy.”

Most of all, Dr. Temps enjoys interfacing with patients each day. “I love chatting with people, I love interacting with patients. I love hearing people’s stories and the insights they provide. It really gives you a window into somebody’s world. And when you can make a difference for that person, it’s really gratifying. That’s why I’m drawn to this area of medicine.”

One of reasons that Dr. Temps came to Reliant Medical Group and ReadyMED is that she enjoys using state-of-the-art tools like electronic medical records and electronic prescriptions. “These tools really do benefit patients. They help prevent errors, because the pharmacist doesn’t have to worry about a doctor’s handwriting. And if the pharmacist has a question about dosage, it’s much easier to contact the doctor. Plus with an electronic prescription you can’t lose it and your dog can’t eat it…”

When she is not busy helping patients, Dr. Temps enjoys being with her family. A resident of Harvard, she enjoys biking with her husband and daughter on the town’s back roads. She also enjoys reading and exercising at the YMCA. Dr. Temps and her family also enjoy traveling and have recently been to Europe and Costa Rica.
