What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I love getting to know my patients. Not only talking about their health but getting to know them personally, is what I enjoy most about my job. Having patients feel comfortable during their appointments is very important to me. In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs? Whether it be physical or mental health, I believe in listening to the patient and working with them to come up with a safe treatment plan for their diagnosis. I do not believe in a "one size fits all" form of healthcare. Discussing and offering different options of care at times is important so the patient can make an informed decision about what may work best for them. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I have been a nurse practitioner since 2017 and was a critical care nurse for 5 years before that. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, and riding my motorcycle. I will never say no to ice cream or pasta.

Nehemiah

I have really loved using Circle Medical. I use Circle for both ADHD treatment and as my primary care provider. I’ve had an easy time with making appointments, seeing my doctors, and I receive amazing care. I work long hours and it’s difficult for me to visit typical doctor’s offices, so it’s nice to have a well rounded online clinic. I also feel that Circle Medical has a great background and it feels more secure knowing that they are tied to a large hospital with a great track record.

Tripp

I felt seen and heard when I talked to the provider. I did try a couple of the competitors and I could tell they were just going through the motions. The provider I am working with is great, personable, and made me feel really comfortable.

Reese

I've had nothing but the best experience with Circle Medical. All my needs have been met and it's VERY flexible.

Nola

I’ve had an amazing experience. I liked how I was able to read up on the providers to find the right fit for me. The provider I chose is absolutely the right fit and has worked with me to find the correct dosage of medication.

Roberto

My provider is so thoughtful in her questions and thoroughly listens and takes the time to come up with a plan that works for ME. There is no one-size-fits-all, and as a mother of five as well as a small business owner, this rings especially true. With Circle Medical you can expect them to take their time (but not too much! Convenience is key in 2022!) and tailor an individual plan suited perfectly for you. You can expect them to care about you as a person and not a number. I am so thankful I found Circle Medical but especially during these busy times.

Sasha

My provider was fantastic and very nice. I felt relaxed in my home environment and was able to be truthful without the fear and anxiety I get in a doctor's office.

Arnav

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.

Samara

Very professional service, extremely convenient and has greatly improved my life. Saves me very intimidating visits to regular doctors that don’t take into consideration modern day issues or considerations. I feel taken care of but also understood.

Precious

Circle Medical works around my crazy life. My meetings are fast but thorough and professional, and it's very affordable.

Mickey

I like being able to talk face-to-face to a great provider without having to take a whole day off of work to go to doctor's appointment, and I can get primary care and other services all in one place.

Morgan

My provider is awesome. She is professional yet very compassionate and listens incredibly well. I always walk away feeling like I've been heard. I trust her.

Itzel

Fast, easy to use, excellent professional service. There are many lousy companies and scams out there, and this is definitely NOT one of them!

Khalil

Everything about using Circle Medical has been great! My provider is amazing and always happy to help with any questions or concerns I have. The administration staff is also very helpful and answers my questions very quickly if I have an issue with my pharmacy, etc. I have recommended Circle to several friends and would gladly recommend them to anyone.

Kylie

Always easy to get a convenient appointment. Very accurate. This is the future of healthcare.

Leo

The app is easy to navigate and book appointments. Also being able to reschedule is great for someone like myself who works on call and has a difficult time keeping appointments.

Madelynn

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

Alden

Circle Medical is super convenient, respectful of your time, and far superior to long waits and far off scheduling with in-person doctors. I am super glad I discovered this.

Brian

Great providers and awesome response team — even during after hours. Overall, Circle Medical is a wonderfully committed healthcare provider, that goes the extra mile for their patients.

Brayan

Amazing staff who are looking to do everything they can to help you with any problem you may have. I was able to get an appointment within a few days for my first consultation compared to a couple months with another service I used to be with. All around it was a great decision moving to Circle Medical, couldn’t be happier.

Gerald

Awesome providers. They take time to actually listen to your symptoms and things you’re dealing with instead of pushing certain medications.

Maximillian

I had struggled to find a primary care provider near where I live as I live in a very rural area and I found this via Google search and could not be happier with the service I have received since. Appointments available next day, easy app to use and friendly staff. Highly recommend!!

Regina

Sincere and caring staff! Excellent communication.

Stewart

Modern day convenience. Great experience.

Amelia

I love how easy the app is to use and how Circle Medical makes healthcare accessible to everyone.

Kim

I have been using Circle for half a year and never had an issue questions were answered within the time given. My provider has been there for me 1000%. Never late!! Pleasant and caring always asked how she can HELP!! I have only good things to say. Your wasting your own time, employers time, gas, and cash going to a doctor's office.

Madelyn

This app met me on my level for my neurodivergent needs, didn't keep me waiting, and has really kind and professional medical staff.

Kanesha

Easy process for booking, very helpful chat feature, they able to take care of pretty much everything including preauthorization with my provider.

Ernesto

The providers are very empathetic and I always feel comfortable discussing my issues.

Dira

The provider was nice, professional and easy to talk with. The whole process was very easy and the app is user friendly as well. Great experience all around.

Jaylen

The interface is extremely easy to use. My interactions have been extremely helpful and insightful with answering all of my questions. I never felt judged or uncomfortable with my interactions.

Chasity

It's been a great platform so far. The response time and availability of the team have been the best.

TJ

The most painless way for a man to seek mental health without shame and embarrassment. My life has improved 200%.

Niles

It was easy to navigate and I liked how the staff sent messages through the app to make sure I had all my documents uploaded.

Nathalie

I have already recommended it to many people. I’m a college student and my university health center has several barriers that make it almost impossible for anyone to afford the services required to get ADHD treatment through them, even with insurance. Circle Medical is convenient and being an app with reminders that I can call from anywhere makes it helpful to remember and make appointments.

Kyle

I’m very happy with the service that Circle provides me with. It’s easy to make appointments with short notice or in advance. Being able to chat in between appointments is an awesome feature and the timely responses I’ve received are always appreciated. I actually have referred a friend to Circle already and she is very happy as well.

Wendy

Amazing practice. Every staff member has been nice, helpful, responsive... there are not enough adjectives to describe how great my experience has been with Circle Medical.

Dana

The convenience and the combination of PCP care with knowledge of mental health. The physician took the time to get to know me both physically and mentally.

Tamara

My provider was extremely nice and understanding, and I need that after the terrible care I’ve gotten in my tiny town.

Kay

Circle is the only part of the healthcare value chain that doesn't waste my time and money.
