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? If a patient presents with an illness, the first part of the role is to determine what the illness is. Second is to help patients understand what the illness is and why it is occurring. The third part of the role is to initiate treatment, with a large component of helping patients understand why treatment is important, and how they can help themselves in the illness. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I enjoy helping patients learn how to improve their own health. I believe education and empowering patients on self-care is one of the most important aspects in improving their health. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I like to garden and be as self-sufficient as possible including composting kitchen waste. At one point my wife and I were able to get eggs and most of our vegetables from what we grew. I also love to hike and have hiked the Inca Trail to Manchu Picchu, climbed up Half Dome, and also am part way done with the Camino del Norte. I do HIIT (high intensity interval training) and rock climb as well.

My provider is the kindest person and she’s very patient and caring. She’s very helpful. The whole setup of Circle Medical is easy and efficient!

Tori

The ease and quick turnaround for an appointment is addressing a dire strain on the current infrastructure of healthcare (one of which they refuse to address). My provider was also unlike any healthcare provider that I’ve met. She was nonjudgmental, kind, and not only advocated for informed consent, but her actions aligned with it. This is the future for healthcare and it is about time.

Sarah

The process to schedule was easy, appointments were available quickly, and the practitioner was thorough, friendly, professional, and compassionate.

Sonia

Prior to Circle Medical, I struggled for months as I visited doctor after doctor for an ADD diagnosis, just to be ignored and misdiagnosed because none of them had researched ADD in women. Then, I found Circle, and was diagnosed and treated within days. The treatment worked, and my life has improved drastically.

I have had a wonderful experience with Circle Medical! 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. My provider is an excellent and extremely thorough provider and the treatment that I have received from her over the past 18+ months has tremendously improved my quality and enjoyment of life. Thank you! Also glad to hear that you are opening clinics as well for times when an in-person visit is needed!
