I've had a great experience with this service. The provider is friendly welcoming understanding. The process is very easy.

Damon

I absolutely appreciate my provider. She is respectful and very approachable. Every experience has been positive.

Ross

I have been using Circle for half a year and never had an issue. Questions were answered within the time given. My provider has been there for me 1000%. Never late!! Pleasant and caring always asked how she can HELP!! I have only good things to say. You're wasting your own time, employer's time, gas and cash going to a doctor's office.

Andy

Because the my provider is eager to help and he is doing anything possible that would achieve my medical needs. I've gotten much further through 2 apts with him this last month than I had ever achieved the many prior years and much struggle.

Greta

So easy to work with and around my busy schedule. My provider is amazing and I am loving the medical care that I am receiving.

Nathanael

The staff that looks out for me...cares for me! I feel they have a very genuine concern for my wellbeing! That means the world to me. It's not just a quick face-time chat, or that feeling of ever being rushed, I truly feel my provider, who's been with me for some time now, actually cares about my health and how best to keep me in the great shape I am now!

Katie

Great service. Professional providers. Never had an issue with billing or scheduling. Communication through the app has improved and availability has increased significantly. I’m seeing a massive improvement in my well-being and daily life thanks to their services and I couldn’t be more grateful. Thanks Circle Medical!

Dennis

I have recommended Circle Medical to two friends and they both have used and are happy with their experience as well.

Kasen

My provider was wonderful, on time, and really took the time to listen to me without judgement.

Randall

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

My provider was fantastic and very nice. I felt relaxed in my home environment and was able to be truthful without the fear and anxiety I get in a doctor's office.

Arnav

I’ve used several online platforms for various medical needs over the last few years, and Circle has been the most comprehensive, as well as pairing me with an excellent provider who actually listens to my issues and concerns as well as taking into consideration what I think would work for me, and not just putting me on random medications to see what may or may not work. I felt listened to and respected, and believe my provider actually wants to help instead of just getting paid and speeding through our appointment.

Denisse

As far as I’m concerned, this is the future of healthcare. I’ve transitioned all of my primary care to Circle Medical as well as my ADHD management. I’m amazed at the weekend and off-hour options, which are a lifesaver for a busy professional like myself. I recommend this service to anyone who is looking to get a PCP or evaluated for ADHD. Your customer service is top-notch and I’ve never had an issue with insurance or my prescriptions. I’m so glad I found your company!

Lenny

The service is legitimate, much easier and less time wasted for medical help. I love how i can just have labs ordered on my own time, and how i don’t have to make an entire day out of seeing a doctor.

Curt

Great experience! I love my provider! She listens to all my concerns. And gives wonderful advice! Very knowledgeable, kind and understanding.

Asia

My provider is attentive and knowledgeable. Her team is responsive, I really feel like I receive the same quality of care as if it were in person. Appointments are readily available.

Ron

I find the staff and doctors to be very friendly and helpful. Going with Circle Medical has made treatment for ADHD so much easier for me!

Nathen

Easy access, no run around. Blown off by at least 3 different doctors before finding Circle and my diagnosis/treatment has immensely improved my life.

Micaela

They accepted my insurance and it is easy to schedule an appointment, easy to communicate with my provider, and they have been helping me with my health in the comfort of my home.

Lucy

This app is a perfect way for people who have adhd and anxiety and anything similar. It is insanely difficult for me to get myself to the doctor with kids, as well. This has helped so much and helped me get the treatment I desperately need in the comfort of my own home. I recommend it to everyone.

Aaden

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.

Kaila

I always feel heard and comfortable during my appointments.

Marvin

Its extremely user friendly, and the Doctors, PAs and NPs are of the absolute highest quality.

Cara

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

Ireland

I feel so comfortable with my provider and the whole process is super easy and manageable!

Melissa

Always professional, always wise, always goes above and beyond!

Oscar

I felt like someone was finally listening and validating me. Other doctors treated me like I was seeking drugs and I couldn’t possibly have the problems or that they aren’t that bad and it’s my fault. Thank you so much for listening, asking me questions, and letting me answer.

Basil

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

Jermaine

My experience with Circle Medical has been fantastic! I’ve had multiple referrals that just lead me back to the beginning, and with Circle I was able to circumvent those, experiencing speedy and professional treatmet. I owe my quality of life to Circle.

Keira

Love the ease of being able to take appointments from anywhere without planning the whole day around it.

Kenley

Circle Medical made it easy to get tested and diagnosed. The medical professionals are first rate. Quick response to follow-up questions and always on time.

Shaun

I have recommended you to several people. I really like Circle Medical because I don't feel judged and feel that I am actually cared about.

Shalane

My provider has been amazing, its quick, easy and you're not waiting months for appointments!

Catalana

Friendly staff. Compassion for ailment, quick response and open schedules. Very knowledgeable team!

Gigi

Honestly my provider has been vastly more concerned about my needs than any doctor I've been too before, and I don't even have to leave my house. This has been an absolutely amazing medical experience.

Warren

Circle has been great! They are cost-effective, efficient and get me the care I need with a busy schedule!

Brittany

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

I have had an excellent experience with Circle Medical and their staff. Everyone has been ready to answer my questions, and openly looks to help me with my needs.

Kennedy

I have recommended Circle Medical to several friends. The process, UI, and providers are very quick and caring. It is perhaps the easiest to use system I’ve ever seen. I highly highly recommend the organization.

Jamarion

Circle Medical appealed to me because they clearly explain the process from start to finish on their website. The FAQ was particularly helpful in understanding how the tele-medicine approach works, and what I needed to do on my end. The app is user friendly, it was straightforward to set-up my account. I like that all of the necessary actions can be done via the app. The intake interview went smoothly with my health care provider. She was professional, polite and thorough. I feel that I received an accurate evaluation.
