We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.

Access and personal connection. The three providers I interacted with seem to have gone out of their way to make things easy for me. It was a seamless experience from assessment/consultation, labs, and medications; it all just worked. As an NP I now know I want to work for an organization like Circle.

Mike

My provider makes things so easy to understand, she’s kind and upfront, and very knowledgeable. I always leave our meetings feeling confident about what we’re doing.

Steve

Everything about the service and the people have been great. Always on time, nice to speak with and answer every question.

Barry

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!

Dayna

The ease and convenience was amazing. My PCP is very professional and welcoming. I felt very comfortable.

Jaydan

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.

Riley

I was able to schedule an appointment quickly and complete my diagnosis and prescription within the same week. My provider was caring, communicated clearly, and willing to answer questions.

Manny

No matter where I live or move to with my job, I can see my provider on Circle Medical. I’ve been using Circle for over a year and absolutely love them.

Jamarion

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

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

Bri

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

Setting things up was incredibly easy and stress-free. I love that the app uses my real name as opposed to what was legally given. And the app works really well, haven't had a single tech issue. Having this option for my appointments with my busy schedule is making my HRT treatment possible.

Alan

I put off my mental health for a long time. It took me a lot of courage just to click Book Appointment. It was so easy, the first appointment was great and constructive, The second was scheduled for 3 days later, and I got a treatment plan from my Mental Health Professional within hours.

Kyle

I could not believe that I got an appointment for ADHD within hours. I had a terrible time trying to get an appointment with the group my insurance recommended. The health practitioner is knowledgeable and kind, and I feel like I'm getting both good physical and psychological support.

Sierra

The whole experience has been fantastic.

Jade

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

Kimberly

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.

Devan

Very happy with the provider and experience. He spends his time with me and asks several questions about my health history. I never have gotten this time in an in-person office setting.

Brynn

I receive a higher level of interaction and care from my provider at Circle than I did from the PCP I had for many years at another clinic. I feel like I have an advocate in my health journey.

Stephen

Wonderful medical treatment who take their time to listen and provide feedback This makes it so easy for a full time working single parent or mother like myself with all that I have to do. This makes life a little easier not having to drive to the doctor every time I need a medication refill.

Joannie

It's very convenient and really knowledgeable staff.

Lissie

Been an overall positive experience where I feel heard and respected by doctors and staff.

Absolute top of the line providers. Most caring, competent, empathetic, kind doctor I've ever had. She is so dedicated to her patients.

Wayne

Prior to Circle Medical, I struggled for months as I visited doctor after doctor for an ADD diagnosis, just to be ignored and misdiagnosed because none of them had researched ADD in women. Then, I found Circle, and was diagnosed and treated within days. The treatment worked, and my life has improved drastically.

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