Board Certified, Family Medicine, 31 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? My journey began with the intention of providing care to the vulnerable and to address healthcare inequities. This has not changed and is just as pertinent, if not more, today. 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? My role is to provide well rounded health care. This includes physical and behavioral health. You cannot have one without the other. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am a woman with purpose and have always dedicated my life to my children, family, community and learned to include, self. I find time to dance and to watch sports.

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!

I am very happy with my treatment and my provider has been really great and helpful. I came to Circle from Done, and Circle is far better at patient follow-up and working with me so that I can manage my ADHD in the best way possible. Also, I am very happy with the communication with Circle Medical.

Deanna

Quick, knowledgeable, and professional service. Easy to use and much, much faster than in person visits.

Patrick

Easy to book an appointment, my PCP is awesome! Fair pricing. I don’t have insurance and this really helps the underserved population that can’t afford big expensive medical bills.

Giancarlo

I like being able to talk face-to-face to a great provider without having to take a whole day off of work to go to doctor's appointment, and I can get primary care and other services all in one place.

Morgan

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

I’ve had an amazing experience. I liked how I was able to read up on the providers to find the right fit for me. The one I chose is absolutely the right fit and has worked with me to find the correct dosage of medication.

This is convenient. The providers that I have interacted with have been, helpful, patient and kind. I feel like a priority with Circle Medical.

Kevin

My provider is amazing. So trauma-informed and willing to listen. She was able to support me in ways so many others doctors had not over the years simply by listening to my concerns and all the ways I had tried to treat my condition on my own. This practice is excellent and I'm so grateful to have found them. I highly recommend Circle Medical.

Samara

I’m a busy working parent. I love that I was able to get an appointment quickly with availability in the evening hours. The NP who evaluated me was thorough on intake/history and I was able to get much needed care. I’m excited that they will be able to provide my primary, preventative care too!

Tomas

Convenient, knowledgeable, professional with a personal touch.

Charlotte

The service is great and flexible and I love my provider! She is amazing. She listened to what I have to say and all my concerns that have been dismissed in the past with other doctors. She never makes me feel silly for my concerns and lets me vent about why I was concerned about it.

Devon

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

My provider is excellent. She is so personable and remembers me. It is easy to use and appointments are available both early or late in the day.

Jane

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

The provider listened, understood, and helped. Everything you look for. The appointment was convenient. I’m scheduling an appointment for my husband!

Heidy

I love having a primary care provider to work with me on getting the correct medication needed to function. I love the convenience of the telehealth appointments as well.

Macy

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

My provider is very understanding and non-judgemental. She shows care for her patients. And I appreciate the convenience of being able to speak to a provider on telehealth.

Heidi

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

This is the first practice in over a decade where I actually felt heard. Advocating for yourself can be hard when you’ve had other practitioners who are dismissive and condescending. This practice is the complete opposite and a much needed breath of fresh air.

Yolanda

Wonderful experience. I feel heard. The virtual visit with the PCP has been so positive. I feel I've gotten better care than I have had in my past in person visits.

Steph

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

Helped me get my ADHD medication renewed when I couldn’t find an in-person provider after moving across the country. My provider is amazing and has listened to me, and followed through with my requests beautifully, making sure I’m educated and know what to expect each time I do make a decision/request.

Abdiel

My provider really listens and understands my issues.

Keli

I recommended it to my wife, who is now a patient with Circle based on just how simple, easy and convenient it is. Without Circle we wouldn't have had the time to work on our health, and we'd both be in a worse place. Thank you!

Cassie

Well, Circle Medical has changed my life! I love Circle Medical because you have a plethora of providers available within a click of a button! Thank you!
