What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? My focus in medical care, I have a patient-centered approach addressing the whole person. I am passionate about assisting the patient to discover their root cause of illness. Through guided health promoting interventions they discover their optimal body functions. 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? Physical and Mental health are interconnected. I assist my patients to look at the whole picture : our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I enjoy yoga, meditation, being out in nature and spending time with my husband on our boat. I am a mom to 4 children. In my spare time I am involved in my children’s sporting activities. I encourage all of them to make a positive imprint in this world.

Circle Medical does a great job making health care easy and accessable. I especially appreciate my provider as she listens and cares about my needs.

Merna

I've never had such immediate access to high quality medical care. It's wonderful.

Mel

I appreciate how simple it is to connect with a provider. Mine has been a pleasure to work with and she has met all of my needs. I’m so glad I found Circle Medical.

Frances

Exceptional care from Day 1 all the way through current treatment. Couldn’t ask for a better service.

Rory

Circle Medical has helped me find a doctor that I am comfortable with, and otherwise wouldn't be able to have as my primary care physician becasue of where I live. It also has helped me get help with my ADHD.

Mary

Circle Medical has provided a convenient, safe, trusted, and confidential medium for health care. I have recommended this service to various family and friends and will continue to do so.

June

I love the provider I’ve been consulting with. She’s attentive and helps me make informed decisions on any adjustments to medication.

Cesar

Circle Medical is a much more convenient way to see a doctor. No taking days off work, sitting around in waiting rooms or fighting traffic to make the appointment.

Lilianna

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

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.

Edwin

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

Kolby

Very convenient for video appointments. Provider is very caring and considerate.

Riri

My provider was great! Very friendly and made me feel comfortable talking about some uncomfortable parts of my life.

Cara

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

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

I like the simplicity and consistency of interaction with the app; scheduling appointments and chatting without the nonsense back and forth missed phone calls and voicemails is a tremendous relief.

Steven

I have had a wonderful experience overall. As a stay at home mom of 6 kids my schedule is schedule and finances are stretched tight. Circle has convenient appointments times, with caring medical professionals, and accepts my insurance so the cost is low.

Tricia

Circle Medical has ALWAYS helped me solve whatever health issue I’ve brought to them! There has never been a time I’ve left an appointment dissatisfied. As a fat individual with preexisting health issues, it is usually hard to find medical providers that actually listen to what I have to say rather than attributing everything to weight. It feels amazing to be heard and validated!

Boston

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. Circle Medical makes it easy to receive care at my convenience. The providers I have seen are knowledgeable and supportive of my needs. I would highly recommend Circle Medical.

Davis

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 friendly and great provider! Appointments are very easy to make. Help with anything you need. Best provider I’ve ever had.

Emily

I so appreciate the provider who is treating me. She is professional and caring. The app is easy. It has been a really good experience.

Miles

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

Bri

No issues whatsoever, affordable gender hormone therapy and nice, professional people.

James

Well I saw the reviews. Also importantly it was a virtual appointment. Working for a school district where there is a shortage of substitutes is makes it difficult at times to take off and go to a doctor in person. This was so much more convenient for me.

Erin

Ease of use, flexibility with schedule, and the provider was informative on the medical issue while delivering care with a nonbiased approach.

Christopher

So fast and flexible getting an appointment. As someone with ADHD and anxiety looking for a doctor is a daunting task and keeps you from getting the care you need. They also actually listen to you and what’s bothering you, working with you to come up with the best course of action.

Cloe

Circle Medical made primary care accessible in a timely way, informative, and affordable. The app increased ease of use and access, and I would recommend the service to anyone looking for consistent, helpful, available primary care.

Kaitlin

Every interaction has been great. The team has been very responsive and attentive to my needs and dedicated to the improvement of my health.

Jaiden

I love my primary care, I have been finally taking care of my health and they have given me the tools for it. I love ease of the app and the assistance from care coordinators.

Layne

The care and concern of the providers, ease of access and use on app and the speed at which things move when dealing with your provider is excellent. Could not be more pleased or grateful to have a provider that listens.

Jaiden

It is a very fair and speedy service. My nurse practioner is a wonderful person, who listens and understands my issues. She has been nothing but kind and willing to help me. I would completely recommend Circle Medical to anyone who wants to be taken care of.

Sunia

The app makes everything really easy and both providers I've seen so far have been wonderful. I couldn't find any doctors in my area that weren't insanely expensive so this app has been a lifesaver!

Hana

My care provider is phenomenal and the ability to book appointments and complete them online is so convenient.

Dora

I made an appointment quickly and easily, the medical practitioner that met me for my appointment was prompt, knowledgeable and mature, and billing/insurance is seamless.

Lincoln

Great selection of providers. They are kind and knowledgeable. Easy process - insurance accepted! Did my check in while at work, doesn’t get better than that!

Skyla

Very easy platform to use, providers are knowledgable, easy to make appointments that fit in my busy schedule.

Madelyn

The provider I spoke with was very knowledgeable and listened to me. She explained things well and made me comfortable.

Theresa

Very quick and easy to set up an appointment, and was able to get my much-needed prescription right away.
