About Me

As a physician assistant, I strive to develop a trusting relationship with all my patients to ensure they are an active part of the decision making process. I am an educator at heart and believe in collaborating with my patients to ensure the best outcomes.

- Whitney Temple, PA-C, DMSc

Whitney chose to focus on plastic surgery because she likes that there are multiple modalities to achieve a patient’s goals, both surgical and non-surgical. She also enjoys working with a talented team of providers to ensure the best outcomes.

Whitney is a registered dietician and practiced as one full-time for eight years before attending school to become a physician assistant.

Other Interests: 

One of the things Whitney loves about Portland is the ability to live close to both the mountains and the beach. She enjoys exploring the area with her family and likes how many beautiful destinations are within a day’s drive.

Outside of work, Whitney enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons, reading, cooking, fitness, and traveling.
