Dr. Melvina Patel
Board Certified, Internal Medicine, 10 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I love to help people be the healthiest versions of themselves and better their lifestyles to prevent illnesses. I’m a people person and learn a lot from my patients as well. 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? A primary care provider should treat patients as a whole. Mental and physical health are tied together. Addressing both contribute to the healthiest version of oneself. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I love to travel and am passionate about Indians music and dance. Like to stay active by kickboxing and spending time running around with my dog.

Fast, easy to use, excellent professional service. There are many lousy companies and scams out there, and this is definitely NOT one of them!

Khalil

Very easy to schedule an appointment and meet with a provider. My provider has been very supportive and extremely helpful without judgement!

Brent

My provider is attentive and listens to me needs. She addresses any issues I have. She is never late to our meetings.

Remi

The Circle Medical team works together to serve patient requests and needs promptly, courteously, and efficiently. I feel very fortunate to be a patient and count on support for my medical needs.

Felix

Circle Medical has filled the access gap to consistent medical care and taken the frustration out of getting appointments and prescriptions. Your service is second to none.

Elaina

I feel like even though it’s virtual that my clinician connected with me. She is very knowledgeable and asks many questions to make sure the medicine I am taking is appropriate for me. I met another provider there when my chosen one wasn’t available and she made me feel the same way. I can trust both of these clinicians.

Shamar

I like all three providers I have interacted with on Circle Medical. They are friendly and easy to talk with.

Ciara

It’s so convenient as a mom of two to do appointment from home. I even suggested it to my brother who hasn’t gone to the doctor in 10 years and now he’s getting seen!

Vanessa

Circle Medical has been extremely patient-oriented and has helped me feel like I’m in good hands with my Mental Health. Receiving my medications on-time with no issues.

Bailee

Everything about using Circle Medical has been great! My provider is amazing and always happy to help with any questions or concerns I have. The administration staff is also very helpful and answers my questions very quickly if I have an issue with my pharmacy, etc. I have recommended Circle to several friends and would gladly recommend them to anyone.

Kylie

I've already recommended it to someone else frustrated by their doctor not taking their ADHD symptoms seriously, which is so often the case.

Emerson

I love my provider. She is always on time, very knowledgeable about the medications and my condition and always answers all my questions.

Eileen

Convenient & and efficient system. Services like this benefit patients and the country. This will save Americans from millions of hours of waiting in clinic lobbies, reduce emissions, reduce fuel consumption, reduce traffic, and drive efficiency in medical records and billing. All these things have a multiplier effect.

Siena

My provider is amazing! She is the first person that I felt like has listened to me and tried to help. I recommend to everyone.

Kit

Circle Medical is super-convenient, respectful of your time, and far superior to long waits and far-off scheduling with in-person doctors. I am super glad I discovered this.

Terrell

I have had nothing but a good experience with my provider. I have been able to get the help I need and have been able to regain control of my life.

Lillianna

The provider was pleasant to work with and made me feel comfortable to talk about my symptoms. The whole process was very easy and stress free.

Daniella

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

Eli

The process was easy and the provider was very professional. They helped me feel comfortable with my choice to seek help.

Adeline

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.

Clarissa

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.

Sandoval

Everything is very easy to use and convenient. Everyone I have interacted with from Circle has been so nice and helpful as well.

Lucia

I LOVE my practitioner from Circle Medical. She is caring and careful. She adjusts my meds as needed. She has made a difference in my health and well being.

Danielle

It's easy to book an appointment, the physicians are nice and the customer service is great.

Ezra

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 so happy that medical and mental health care accessibility has finally caught up to our “new normal” schedules and lifestyles. I’ve had an incredibly helpful provider for the past 3 months and every appointment has been exactly to-the-minute on time, professional, and convenient. I truly feel the care and helpfulness she has for me during our appointments, and I’m sure many others as well. Thank you Circle Medical for providing healthcare that doesn’t require me taking hours off of work to drive to and sit in a waiting room for a simple routine follow up/check in appointment every month. 10/10 quality care and reliability. I can’t thank you enough.

Izaiah

Circle Medical has been a life saver! The ability to use insurance is key, as well as the availability and variety of providers. I found an AMAZING primary provider that is hands-down the best I've ever had. Plus, the convenience of video visits is fantastic!! I love Circle Medical!

Brennan

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

Circle Medical was able to get me the help and care I needed when I needed it most. Local doctors and health services were too booked to be able to help me soon enough. Circle got me connected with health professionals quickly and with ease. Quite simply, Circle saved my life.

Reese

I am very happy with their service, especially after bad experiences with other companies. My provider is very helpful, attentive and genuinely seems to care. Medicine orders are quick and they do what they promise.

Seymour

Circle Medical is ultra convenient, and my provider is thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. This is the future of healthcare!

Lilian

Ease of use, professional support, and excellent medical providers make Circle Medical a great choice.

Dalton

The providers are very empathetic and I always feel comfortable discussing my issues.

Dira

I have been working with a great doctor and being able to do everything from my house has been extremely helpful.

Jaime

To my provider, thank you sooo much!!! You are the best doctor ever!!! I literally owe you my life and I will be forever grateful, may God bless you so you can keep helping more patients 🙏🏻🩺👩‍⚕️

Macher

Very easy process, my provider was thorough and understanding and efficient. Already recommended to my sister.

Jase

The scheduling and administrative stuff that's usually a nightmare with healthcare providers is a total breeze w/ Circle. I have an amazing doctor who is attentive to my needs and provides excellent care.

Monique

This app met me on my level for my neurodivergent needs, didn't keep me waiting, and has really kind and professional medical staff.

Adan

As a person with ADHD, going to the doctor in person can be really difficult. I used to put off making appointments because it felt like too many steps and I'd go without seeing a doctor for a few years at a time. Circle Medical allows me to access quality care from home and I never miss my appointments thanks to this convenience.

Natalya

Circle Medical has been so amazing with me from the provider to customer service. They really do care about my concerns. It has been so easy and simple.
