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.

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.

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!

As a business owner and busy mom, my time is extremely limited and the process of scheduling an appointment and speaking with a provider is seamless, fast and easy.

Thank you! Also glad to hear that you are opening clinics as well for times when an in-person visit is needed!

Circle Medical has been absolutely amazing to me. I have been a patient at Circle Medical for about 7 months now and the experience has just been awesome. From day 1 I have been welcomed with open arms. I do telehealth visits right in the comfort of my own home, how convenient is that, and for me it's perfect because I am a pediatric nurse and I'm always having a busy day / schedule. So that worked out perfect. I was even given the opportunity to pick my own provider and I must say I picked the absolute best provider in the world she Is awesome so sweet and comforting and motivating.
