What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I really enjoy being an integral part of each individual patient’s journey to health. In order to function properly, the body needs a healthy balance between mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Professionally, nothing brings more joy than to see my patients achieve harmony in these three pillars because this is when health can be optimized best. 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? In my opinion, the role of a primary care provider is to understand each patient’s individual needs and barriers to care in order to optimize their overall wellbeing. This requires actively listening to what patients are saying in order to understand individual goals and develop realistic plans that the provider can help them achieve. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I love to run, play soccer, practice yoga, be in nature, paint with oils and play with my dog. This past year, I’ve started gardening and completed my first landscape project. I also enjoy reading books of all kinds; currently, I am finishing “Klara and the Sun” by Kazuo Ishiguro.

Terry

Very convenient. I was shocked that I could get inexpensive mental health services so quickly. Very pleased.

Marina

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

Because my provider was so good and knowledgeable. This app allows trans people in rural areas to get help!!

I would absolutely recommend Circle Medical and I have even recommended it to a friend.
