Christine Freise, APRN-BC
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 24 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I enjoy health care. I think it is important to have a good rapport with your provider so you develop a trusting relationship. The best medical care is provided with a good relationship. I enjoy working with people and being able to help them live a healthy lifestyle. 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? I feel the primary care provider should support preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices. The PCP identifies and treats medical conditions as well as recommends referrals as needed. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am a free spirited adventurous person. I enjoy hiking, traveling and being active. My next adventure will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Sonya

The Circle Medical team works together to serve patient requests and needs promptly, courteously, and efficiently. I feel very fortunate to be a patient and count on support for my medical needs.

User friendly app and straight forward process. Both providers I've seen are caring and want the best for you!!!

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.

Mithra

Excellent service. Easy to navigate. Connections to professional staff that have helped me on multiple occasions.

Felipe

It's so easy to make appointments, the messaging feature makes help SO accessible, and the quality of the providers are top notch. It's such a relief to be able to schedule an appointment the day I need it. I always feel so heard and so cared for.

Quinn

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.

Mark

I love speaking with my provider, she always listens to me and takes the time to be interested in me as a person!!

Erica

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

Circle Medical has been such a great platform to see a care provider! I have had such a great experience with the ease of using the platform as well as the providers. Thank you!

Nico

Convenience, professional, confident. They are really doing a good job of taking care of me.

Rick

The entire process is fast and easy. My provider is competent, reliable, caring, and friendly. Billing and service team are always highly responsive and helpful. Perfect.

Pierce

Circle Medicine has been a godsend for me because in my rural area there are not enough primary care physicians. I've had 5 PCPs in 4 years because they keep leaving. When I couldn't get a timely appointment with a new PCP, Circle Medical helped me, with care and concern. I highly recommend Circle Medical. I'm getting better care and health conversation with my provider than I did in person!

Dalia

My provider is really knowledgeable about her job and is very compassionate. My interactions with the other staff has been great too!

Travis

Very convenient. I was shocked that I could get inexpensive mental health services so quickly. Very pleased.

Marina

Providers make me feel seen, heard, and validated in my adversities and experience. The accessibility is huge and a life saver. It’s so hard to have the courage to seek help for something you believe you struggle with but have been dismissed and shot down before when you have tried to seek out help in the past. Having the option to be assessed virtually saved my life and has completely changed me for the better.

Autumn

I like all three providers I have interacted with on Circle Medical. They are friendly and easy to talk with.

Ciara

Your app is the best I’ve used, and I design apps for a living. I absolutely love my provider. She’s so kind and caring and very easy to talk to.

Barbara

I DID refer a friend just yesterday. I went through 5 other companies before I found this one, you check every box plus extra credit.

Chelsea

As someone who has ADHD, simply setting up an account on the site was so easy. You can tell that this was made with neurodivergent people in mind. Things are just SIMPLE.

Ryan

I’ve seen three different providers, both in Florida and now in Massachusetts (we moved), and I have been very pleased with their professionalism, knowledge and compassion.

Joelle

I feel so much better!! I am so grateful for Circle Medical. Thank you all for listening to me and getting me the help I needed!

Makaila

My provider is very attentive and always asks me the right questions that fit my issues. I love the communication, the whole team has even if its not my provider, someone is always there to help me when I have questions! 10/10!

Maddie

I love Circle Medical! I have a very busy life with a constantly changing schedule and it can be very challenging to plan for my doctor's appointments. With my providers on Circle Medical however, I can meet with my provider any place that I feel comfortable talking about whatever is going on.

Easy scheduling. Quick responses on the app. Super friendly staff and the providers are thorough and comprehensive with their questions and exams. I never feel rushed. I feel like this is a concierge experience.

Tiara

Circle has been great for a busy, young, always-moving-around individual like myself and many other young professionals. Finding a primary care provider in a new city has always been a needlessly difficult task.

Awesome service, many appointment times available, caring and thorough medical care perfect for people with busy schedules.
