That was the question Circle Medical's cofounders asked each other in 2014. After finding early success in other startups, and seeing how technology and great software was making everything from food delivery to travel simpler, faster, easier, and more fun, they were driven to bring those same improvements to healthcare.
Circle Medical built a team that paired software engineers with top doctors to help build a software platform that wasn't just easier for patients to use, but was also designed to make doctors and other providers more effective and efficient at providing care. We started seeing patients in person in our San Francisco clinic in 2017.
Deeply committed to not only increasing access but also improving the quality of care, in 2019 Circle Medical entered into partnership with UCSF, one of America's top 10 hospitals. As our team continued to refine the Circle Medical App and our proprietary Medical Records software, we also built relationships with America's top insurance companies, ensuring that most Americans with health insurance have plans that are accepted by Circle Medical.
When the COVID-19 pandemic changed online medicine forever, Circle Medical leaned into being able to provide exceptional access to great medical care to anyone, from anywhere.
We now see over 50,000 patients a month nationwide, and are in the process of opening up clinics in cities around the US, from New York to Miami and Los Angeles.

Seeing a provider over the Circle Medical App is a fast, convenient, and comprehensive way to get medical care.
We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.
It’s very convenient and flexible. The providers are very compassionate and foster an open environment that allows patients to take control of their health and well-being.
Very easy to schedule appointments, communication and doctors notes are the best I’ve ever experienced. My provider is very easy to talk to and always reminds me he’s just a message away in case I ever need him.
Very smooth and easy process to get in touch with knowledgeable doctors who care. The patient care coordinators are always quick to respond in resolving issues as well. Highly recommend!
Its extremely user friendly, and the Doctors, PAs and NPs are of the absolute highest quality.
They listen. I finally got put on meds that help.
This was my first experience using something like this and the entire process was very helpful. The staff responded promptly when I had questions and I absolutely love my provider. I was very nervous about the process but she made me feel comfortable and helped me feel like I wasn’t alone. I am so happy I found Circle Medical
Provider was very nice, attentive, she listed to me and i am very satified.
I love how easy the app is to use and how Circle Medical makes healthcare accessible to everyone.
I LOVE my practitioner from Circle Medical. She is caring and careful. She adjusts my meds as needed. She has made a difference in my health and well being.
Circle Medicine gave me access to care that if I had not been able to access through telemedicine I most likely would not have gotten it. Not to mention the ease of use, which is an absolute 10. Technology at its finest.
My provider is great, very attentive and a great listener. This app makes my life so much easier and convenient when it comes to keeping up with my health.
Very reliable and kind service, very professional, providers are amazing! The app is great.
Excellent providers that truly care about their patients and listen to their concerns. Telehealth appointments are seamless.
Quick, knowledgeable, and professional service. Easy to use and much, much faster than in person visits.
I get to decide my provider. Tons of appointments that are days away instead of weeks. Well-designed app. Medical/appointment notes are all in one location instead of spread around or buried. Everything got done without any bumps or pushback or bs. I've never *ever* had such a painless experience.
My provider was amazing. She listened to what I had to say, she explained everything in detail so I understood, and she truly cared about me.
No matter where I live or move to with my job, I can see my provider on Circle. I’ve been using Circle for over a year and absolutely love them.
An extremely caring company, very responsive and went above and beyond when I was in crisis. Cannot recommend them enough!! Keep up the great work.
Super easy, fantastic service and care!
Because the doctors are very professional and also they have compassion unlike others in the past
They are absolutely amazing!!
Easy to book an appointment, huge selection of days and times, you can use different providers. Everyone is helpful and respectful.
My provider is amazing. So trauma-informed and willing to listen. She was able to support me in ways so many others doctors had not over the years simply by listening to my concerns and all the ways I had tried to treat my condition on my own. This practice is excellent and I'm so grateful to have found them. I highly recommend Circle Medical.
Easy to navigate, personalized care and a provider who listens to me.
My primary doctor that I see is very attentive, caring, and makes me feel comfortable at every visit.
I have been helped in every aspect of the word.
Provider very punctual, efficient, and informative. Easy to use. Helpful for my needs.
My provider! I have felt heard, believed and taken care of by her. I am so happy to telehealth and having access to a wonderful provider through Circle Medical.
Joining Circle Medical has saved my life. I was so lost and didn't know why or what was wrong with me. I took a chance and downloaded the app, and had an appointment in the comfort of my own home within a week. I'm now getting the help I always needed and it has been a game changer.
Great doctors, great customer support, prescription is sent to my pharmacy electronically, payments are done internal (no third parties), easy and simple.
They accepted my insurance, easy to schedule an appointment, easy to communicate with my doctor and they have been helping me with my health in the comfort of my home.
Access and personal connection. The three providers I interacted with seem to have gone out of their way to make things easy for me. It was a seamless experience from assessment/consultation, labs, and medications; it all just worked. As an NP I now know I want to work for an organization like Circle.
The best, most easy experience I’ve ever had! My physician has been tremendously knowledgeable and helpful.
Convenient & and efficient system. Services like this benefit patients and the country. This will save Americans from millions of hours of waiting in clinic lobbies, reduce emissions, reduce fuel consumption, reduce traffic, and drive efficiency in medical records and billing. All these things have a multiplier effect.
Circle Medical made accessing care easy. Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help, and Circle Medical made it easy for me to find a remote provider. From the beginning I felt respected, listened to, and cared for.
The efficiency of not having to go to an office and the flexible hours are great!
Circle Medical is a game changer for me and my health care. Phenomenal service.
Easy to schedule appointments, the chat is super responsive, and everyone I’ve talked to is friendly and helpful.
Been an overall positive experience where I feel heard and respected by doctors and staff.
As far as I’m concerned, this is the future of healthcare. I’ve transitioned all of my primary care to Circle Medical as well as my ADHD management. I’m amazed at the weekend and off-hour options, which are a lifesaver for a busy professional like myself. I recommend this service to anyone who is looking to get a PCP or evaluated for ADHD. Your customer service is top-notch and I’ve never had an issue with insurance or my prescriptions. I’m so glad I found your company!
