Board Certified, Family Medicine, 11 years of experience
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 be one that provides guidance and supervision in helping a patient achieve their healthcare goals with not only the necessary counseling but also guidance of treatment modalities that would work best for the patient. The relationship between physician and patient should be a collaboration and not just a one-way street. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? The ability to treat multi-generational families with making an impact in their future wellbeing with focus on preventative medicine. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I love spending time with my husband and young children, as well as traveling and gardening.

My primary care providers were a half hour away so I’d have to take 2 hours off work just to visit then. Being able to see a provider virtually on Circle Medical saves me a lot of time

Mark

It's very convenient and really knowledgeable staff.

Lissie

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’s process was easy and intuitive made even better by a professional and kind provider. As a practice manager myself, your platform impressed me!!!! My provider’s “bedside manner” is warm and while I have insurance and could have gone elsewhere, I still chose Circle Medical.

Nolan

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

This is a marvelous service, it has significantly helped me with my medical needs and my new PCP is amazing!

Annabella

Friendly staff. Compassion for ailment, quick response and open schedules. Very knowledgeable team!

Gigi

Circle Medical does a great job making health care easy and accessable. I especially appreciate my provider as she listens and cares about my needs.

Merna

My provider is very attentive and always asks me the right questions that fit my issues. I love the communication, the whole team has even if its not my provider, someone is always there to help me when I have questions! 10/10!

Maddie

Mr provider is great. I feel he is thorough and cares about my well being. I also like that it's affordable even without insurance.

Amiah

My clinician is amazing. I appreciate being able to move through my treatment online and to see tangible results because of her care.

Amber

This system, the efficiency, and care behind it is the best that I have come across. I have been uncomfortable addressing issues like ADD and ADHD as an adult, so I put this off for years. My provider has already helped in 2 sessions. I have to say, I am already feeling better simply taking the initial steps. A big thanks to this team!

Shane

The provider I spoke with was very knowledgeable and listened to me. She explained things well and made me comfortable.

Carolina

Helpful, kind, understanding staff and medical professionals who take time to hear you! Thank you all. It’s been a game changer for me!

Polly

Easy, fast booking, respectful treatment, great documentation and communication. My provider listens to me, takes my input into account and treats me like an equal, not like an annoyance. Can't recommend enough, A+++++

Tommy

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

Ciara

My provider was great! Very friendly and made me feel comfortable talking about some uncomfortable parts of my life.

Maleah

Great group of providers. They have been great and quick to answer. I love the fact that in today's world we can do this on the phone. It’s convenient for everyone.

Julio

I could not believe that I got an appointment for ADHD within hours. I had a terrible time trying to get an appointment with the group my insurance recommended. The health practitioner is knowledgeable and kind, and I feel like I'm getting both good physical and psychological support.

Sierra

I found an amazing provider who has helped me more in the last few months than a team of specialists over the course of nearly a decade of care.

Mala

More thorough than any in-person doctor visit I've ever been to.

Nicole

The fact that I don't have to leave my house to get exceptional service from providers that actually care, is amazing. Everything about Circle Medical is great. I would 10 out of 10 recommend.

Johnny

It was such an easy process, my provider may be one of the best I’ve ever had in my life

Cynthia

Ease of scheduling, customer service, my provider has been attentive and efficient, i can't say enough good things! Circle has literally changed my life.

Jill

The care I’ve received from my providers has been excellent. They genuinely care about you as a person.

Madalynn

My practitioner is amazing and has helped me so much. She is compassionate and truly cares about her patients.

Dallas

I found the best provider I've ever had. She cares, she listens, and she's knowledgeable. I can schedule easily and don't need to commute to an office for an appointment.

Bianca

I love my provider and the app. This all made it really easy to take care of myself and my body again. I also love that every provider is LGBTQ affirming and it makes a big difference.

Patricia

My provider is so thoughtful in her questions and thoroughly listens and takes the time to come up with a plan that works for ME. There is no one-size-fits-all, and as a mother of five as well as a small business owner, this rings especially true. With Circle Medical you can expect them to take their time (but not too much! Convenience is key in 2022!) and tailor an individual plan suited perfectly for you. You can expect them to care about you as a person and not a number. I am so thankful I found Circle Medical but especially during these busy times.

Sasha

Ease of care, excellent provider who listened to my concerns, video apts from home on the weekend which makes it so much easier to have an appointment.

Annalise

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!

Sonia

Providers make me feel seen, heard, and validated in my adversities and experience. The accessibility is huge and a life saver. It’s so hard to have the courage to seek help for something you believe you struggle with but have been dismissed and shot down before when you have tried to seek out help in the past. Having the option to be assessed virtually saved my life and has completely changed me for the better.

Autumn

My provider was very caring and easy to deal with. She spent more time with me than any doctor I've had in the past decade. Highly recommended.

Keagan

I work odd hours and having remote access to healthcare make it so much easier so I don’t have to call off work or leave work.

Christian

I felt listened to! I’ve met with medical professionals in the past who dismissed my complaints, but my provider actively listened to me and addressed my issues.

Evangeline

I get to decide my provider. Tons of appointments that are days away instead of weeks. Well-designed app. Medical/appointment notes are all in one location instead of spread around or buried in menus. Everything got done without any bumps or pushback or bs. I've never *ever* had such a painless experience.

Stacy

So much easier than dealing with my antiquated primary care office! I used to have to wait on hold for at least ten minutes to make an appointment.

Venu

My provider was amazing. She made me feel comfortable and was super friendly. We found a course of treatment that has truly changed my life.

Rocco

No matter where I live or move to with my job, I can see my provider on Circle Medical. I’ve been using Circle for over a year and absolutely love them.

Jamarion

Easy to schedule. My provider is great at answering my questions and really listens to my concerns!
