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? My role is to keep you as healthy as possible through preventative care, and to be there for you whenever you are not feeling your best. I am here to listen and work with you to come up with solutions together to give you the highest quality of life possible. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? Every person and story is unique, and I love to listen and play detective to solve any problems that may be ongoing. It truly makes my day when I can help someone get better and that makes every day worth it! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am a crazy cat lady-sorry dog people! I love to hang out with my animals, go hiking, and traveling. I also love to bake-I make a mean chocolate chip cookie!

Jair

Awesome doctors. They take time to actually listen to your symptoms and things you’re dealing with instead of pushing certain medications.

Bri

Circle Medicine has been a godsend for me because in my rural area there are not enough primary care physicians. I've had 5 PCPs in 4 years because they keep leaving. When I couldn't get a timely appointment with a new PCP, Circle Medical helped me, with care and concern. I highly recommend Circle Medical. I'm getting better care and health conversation with my provider than I did in person!

Dalia

Circle Medical made accessing care easy. Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help, and Circle Medical made it easy for me to find a remote provider. From the beginning I felt respected, listened to, and cared for.

Cossna

I have been using Circle for half a year and never had an issue questions were answered within the time given. My provider has been there for me 1000%. Never late!! Pleasant and caring always asked how she can HELP!! I have only good things to say. Your wasting your own time, employers time, gas, and cash going to a doctor's office.

Madelyn

I have struggled for years with my health issues, but always ran into barriers in getting affordable treatment. With Circle Medical, I saw a provider, received a diagnoses, and am already on treatment. All within a few days! They listen and also make getting help so easy.

The provider was extremely kind and thorough, the app is very easy to use, and I had no problems picking up my prescription.
