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.

It’s just easy for a working mom in between calls when I have about 20 mins or so to actually care for myself and my health right from home.

Hana

Amazing care with exceptional convenience! Telehealth should be much more mainstream. I'm very glad to have found Circle Medical.

Kimberly

It was accessible, period. I could get an appointment that was not months out like most local doctors. Gave me records that documented my history. Made it possible to receive care online/virtually.

Rosemary

Great doctors, great customer support, prescription is sent to my pharmacy electronically, payments are done internal (no third parties), easy and simple.

Dendra

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

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

Adan

It is a very well organized system, efficient and easy. My provider has specific ADHD training and you let us know how your ADHD program rolls (up front). No one likes surprises. My provider was kind and helpful and I got a follow up on our discussion and what I can do to empower myself NOW. Thanks Circle.

Jasper

My provider…she is amazing. Also the support team for reminders, scheduling and questions. Wonderful experience!

Carl

I felt listened to! I’ve met with medical professionals in the past who dismissed my complaints, but my provider actively listened to me and addressed my issues.

Evangeline

Has always been super helpful! The video conferencing capability is wonderful. I've actually gotten help with eczema and the provider was able to confirm and treat without a problem.

Terrance

The process was quick and very efficient. The provider was very knowledgeable and I could tell that she really cared.

This was super easy to use and understand I could do this in the comfort of my own home. I am very happy with the change that is coming in my life because of Circle Medical.

Kelly

I was able to find a provider to help me with my needs within 24 hours. Even though I’ve been trying to find a doctor locally, I was unable to receive help for months until I stumbled on Circle Medical. They were helpful and nice.

Jorge

This system, the efficiency, and care behind it is the best that I have come across. I have been uncomfortable addressing issues like ADD and ADHD as an adult, so I put this off for years. My provider has already helped in 2 sessions and I started my prescription within days. I have to say, I am already feeling better simply taking the initial steps. A big thanks to this team!

As a long-standing healthcare worker myself, I am very familiar with the healthcare system and how difficult at times it can be to get an appointment with a provider.
