Dr. Shera Raisen
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 32 years of experience
Tell us what makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider. Dr. Raisen wants her patients to enjoy a sense of well-being in body, mind, and spirit. Dr. Raisen provides care, commitment, and communication to her patients to help them achieve their health goals. Her philosophy includes the philosophy of Dr. William Osler, a prominent founder of modern medicine. He said, ""It is better to know the patient who has the disease, than to know the disease that the patient has." Dr. Raisen interviews patients about their medical concerns as well as about lifestyle including diet and exercise, family, current love relationships, career, and how they express themselves creatively. 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 physician uses her extensive clinical experience to treat a wide range of disease. The physician also empowers a patient in improving their health and well-being. Dr. Raisen's special interests include women's health and lifestyle and preventative medicine. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? Dr. Raisen loves any kind dancing, such as Zumba and Lindy Hop. I write songs on my guitar, like to get out into nature and the parks, do crossword puzzles, and see Broadway shows. I enjoy meditation and tapping practices.

Julien

Simple and easy. My PCP. Is absolutely amazing, super helpful, kind and understanding. It was also very affordable and convenient and worked well with my insurance.

Easy to book an appointment, my PCP is awesome! Fair pricing. I don’t have insurance and this really helps the underserved population that can’t afford big expensive medical bills.

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.

It was easy to navigate and I liked how the staff sent messages through the app to make sure I had all my documents uploaded.

Nathalie

Everyone has been absolutely wonderful to work with. Genuine, resolves my concerns and intelligent. Thank you!

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. You're wasting your own time, employer's time, gas and cash going to a doctor's office.

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

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

The provider made appointments comfortable to talk and discuss my problems. It is easy to schedule and have access to messaging. Very affordable compared to others I have looked into.

Nicole

Simple and straightforward process, from home. The provider was more patient and attentive than I am accustomed to at my regular doctor.

Quick, knowledgeable, and professional service. Easy to use and much, much faster than in-person visits.

Charlie

It was very easy to sign up. The provider I chatted with was very thorough.

Maggie

My experience with Circle has been great. The first, and my current provider is very caring and understanding. From my first appointment until now I was able to talk to her without feeling like my words were falling on deaf ears. I've already recommended Circle to my friend and I would reommend that anyone who needs any help shouldn't hesitate and make the right choice. It's nice to be able to say that!

Adison

For a long time it was hard to find a provider I trusted, and the ones around here are short and rude. So I stopped going to get medical care unless it was an emergency. But this has brought faith back into me that medical field is not just all about money and looking to get people in and out as quick as possible, and now not having to sit in waiting rooms that possibly could spread illness and can do it online is absolutely amazing. Love this service.

Melvin

Each provider I have encountered is kind and extremely thorough. I never feel rushed as you often do in a typical primary care setting.

Brice

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

Remi

I can take the appointment anywhere. I couldn’t find a psychiatrist nearby and resorted to virtual. Circle Medical is a doctor in your pocket and I love it. I love my provider too.

Demarcus

The app is convenient, easy to use, and lets me schedule appointments on short notice (such as for paxlovid for COVID infection). Excellent experience, and my healthcare provider meets my needs.

Logan

It is quick and convenient, especially compared to traditional healthcare.

Nicholas

As a long-standing healthcare worker myself, I am very familiar with the healthcare system and how difficult at times it can be to get an appointment with a provider. Circle Medical makes it easy to receive care at my convenience. The providers I have seen are knowledgeable and supportive of my needs. I would highly recommend Circle Medical.

Davis

Medical care meant for modern life. Flexible times and locations. Providers who care about your well being and respect your time. I feel like my provider is a practical problem solver.

Elle

The help I've received has been absolutely fantastic. The person who did my testing was friendly, polite, and obviously very talented. Made me feel safe to be able to open up and talk about my issues, and left me feeling very validated and heard.

Peyton

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

Circle Medical has been of a great help. Telemedicine is now necessary and they make you feel like you are at home. The providers are very professional and kind. I loved them.

Macher

The turnaround time to get an appointment and see a provider was so quick and easy; everything is setup with the neurodivergent brain in mind from the way the app is designed to appointment reminders and calendar syncing. My provider made me feel heard and she kept our appointment focused on the task at hand (so important for adhd minds!).

Brynlee

Access and personal connection. The three providers I interacted with seem to have gone out of their way to make things easy for me. It was a seamless experience from assessment/consultation, labs, and medications; it all just worked. As an NP I now know I want to work for an organization like Circle.

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