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.

Raiden

My experience with Circle Medical has been nothing but great. My personal medical provider had been wonderful. She listens, and truly wants to help me.

Ezra

The process was easy and quick. I waited months for an appointment with an office and missed it. With Circle Medical I was seen and treated in a few days. Amazing.

Nikki

My provider has been amazing, very helpful and supportive. She’s very knowledgeable and sincere. I would definitely recommend.

Ayaan

The attention my provider has for me as a patient. Not just the generic questions but rephrasing them in to something that is specific to me and I can understand.

Kimberley

It has been fast and easy. The clinicians are great and I found my primary care through this. I love how they are even knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ stuff which is exactly what I've been looking for

Briggs

So convenient to do telehealth visits and to fit them into my schedule. I appreciate the providers have been trained to do the assessments and seem to have a lot of knowledge.

Titus

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

I already recommended it to some friends. I love going through you guys. Most caring provider I have ever had. She actually listens to me and makes sure I am well taken care of. Absolutely would recommend you to everyone. Such a quick and easy way to get in touch with some very kind and caring providers. You are the best!

Kirstie

Great service, This is very ideal for a person who can not make time to go see a doctor at a clinic.

Leah

I love my provider. He is very thorough and is easy to get ahold of.

Kyle

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

Asia

Circle Medical has been so amazing with me from the provider to customer service. They really do care about my concerns. It has been so easy and simple.

Nigel

I can take the appointment anywhere. I couldn’t find a psychiatrist nearby and resorted to virtual. Circle Medical is a doctor in your pocket and I love it. I love my provider too.

Demarcus

For a long time it was hard to find a provider I trusted, and the ones around here are short and rude. So I stopped going to get medical care unless it was an emergency. But this has brought faith back into me that medical field is not just all about money and looking to get people in and out as quick as possible, and now not having to sit in waiting rooms that possibly could spread illness and can do it online is absolutely amazing. Love this service.

Melvin

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 has been a life saver! The ability to use insurance is key, as well as the availability and variety of providers. I found an AMAZING primary provider that is hands-down the best I've ever had. Plus, the convenience of video visits is fantastic!! I love Circle Medical!

Brennan

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

At-home appointments, wonderful providers and customer service when I need to speak with my provider. Can’t recommend enough especially for a busy, full time working mom of 3!

Neveah

I’m so happy that medical and mental health care accessibility has finally caught up to our “new normal” schedules and lifestyles. I’ve had an incredibly helpful provider for the past 3 months and every appointment has been exactly to-the-minute on time, professional, and convenient. I truly feel the care and helpfulness she has for me during our appointments, and I’m sure many others as well. Thank you Circle Medical for providing healthcare that doesn’t require me taking hours off of work to drive to and sit in a waiting room for a simple routine follow up/check in appointment every month. 10/10 quality care and reliability. I can’t thank you enough.

Izaiah

The efficiency of not having to go to an office and the flexible hours are great!

Tina

I found the best provider I've ever had. She cares, she listens, and she's knowledgeable. I can schedule easily and don't need to commute to an office for an appointment.

Felicia

I rated you a 10 because firstly my experience was excellent, the provider was very professional and easy to talk to, and the medication she recommended seems to be working great!

Devin

My provider is just great. She has true concern for her patients. She listens and tries to understand my needs while providing educated suggestion to help me in my development. She shows that she has a heart!

Ginger

The app, and the providers have been a great deal of help to me! And the convenience is wonderful as well. I honestly can't ask for better help. I'm really on a path to getting better and stronger so thank you.

Demetrius

Ease and simplicity of signing up, scheduling, communicating, and not having to waste time going to an office. Saves hours and hours of time per year.

Clarence

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

I feel like I was listened to and recieved a proper diagnosis and treatment. Also very convenient.

Katherine

I referred a friend just yesterday. The reason why is I went through 5 other similar companies before I found this one that checks every box plus extra credit.

Rayan

Loved my visit and the fact I could make an appointment within a reasonable timeframe was amazing. Also not wasting time driving and waiting was a huge plus.

Cecelia

My provider has been very helpful in helping me find the right treatment. She is patient and through. The platform is user-friendly and easy to use.

Carly

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.

Joshua

Circle Medical handles everything in a professional and courteous manner.

Paul

I have tried a few online medical providers and they did not have very good communication. Circle Medical has been great with communication and responses! Would recommend them to anyone!

Kymani

Easy to use app. The provider that I see is exceptional. You take my insurance so my cost is extremely affordable. Great customer service. Super easy to make an appointment. Many appointment time/day options. I have nothing but praise for Circle Medical. Thank you.

Ease of care, excellent provider who listened to my concerns, video apts from home on the weekend which makes it so much easier to have an appointment.
