Emelita Peper, NP-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 2 years of experience
Primary care provider's role in my opinion should always be looking at the whole person: physical and emotional and addressing all body systems. The primary care provider focuses on preventive care and educating patient on healthy lifestyle choices. identifying and treating acute and chronic medical conditions, and providing referrals to specialist as the needs arise. I'm a health care professional, a Nurse Practitioner. Prior to being an NP I was a Registered Nurse for 8 years started at a Nursing Rehab then moved to a hospital setting. Being in healthcare brings a lot of mental and physical stress. I am a wife and mother of three children. On my spare time, I like to play with kids, walk in a neighborhood, dance hula hoop, watch movies and gardening. I read books as well on the weekends.

I have already referred friends! Absolutely amazing team of providers, very convenient, and very easy to work with.

Mylee

My experience with Circle Medical has been fantastic! I’ve had multiple referrals that just lead me back to the beginning, and with Circle I was able to circumvent those, experiencing speedy and professional treatmet. I owe my quality of life to Circle.

Keira

My experience with Circle Medical has been nothing but great. My personal medical provider had been wonderful. She listens, and truly wants to help me.

Ezra

The app makes everything really easy and both providers I've seen so far have been wonderful. I couldn't find any doctors in my area that weren't insanely expensive so this app has been a lifesaver!

Laurie

My provider was easy to work with. She's also licensed in both CA and FL where I split my time - which makes my medical care sooo much easier! She was lovely ♥️.

Jacki

My provider is great. Answers all of my questions before our visit ends. I originally used Circle Medical because I couldn’t get an appointment with a provider in person, but because of my experience I decided to keep Circle as my primary care provider.

Thalia

Easy to get appointments, provider is kind, very helpful and is committed to helping me. This app was there when my doctors ignored me for YEARS.

Ashley

I put off my mental health for a long time. It took me a lot of courage just to click Book Appointment. It was so easy, the first appointment was great and constructive, The second was scheduled for 3 days later, and I got a treatment plan from my Mental Health Professional within hours.

Kyle

I felt heard. I felt educated by the provider. There’s so much stigma and such a shortage of psychiatrists. I felt alone and judged, but Circle was different.

Princess

ADHD assessment was tailored to adult women, the expert gave nuanced additions and clarification to questions or statements. I feel much better-equipped to handle life and am making progress in ways that seemed impossible before.

Chandra

Exceptional Experience! From easy and convenient scheduling to a great doctor experience!

Sonya

Fantastic doctors, NPs, communication. Ease of use, virtual appointments, on time for every appointment. They are quick and thorough.

Eliza

Amazing staff who are looking to do everything they can to help you with any problem you may have. I was able to get an appointment within a few days for my first consultation compared to a couple months with another service I used to be with. All around it was a great decision moving to Circle Medical, couldn’t be happier.

Gerald

The process was easy and the provider was very professional. They helped me feel comfortable with my choice to seek help.

Adeline

My provider was absolutely lovely and I had a much better experience in general with Circle Medical than I ever have with any psychiatrist.

Bobby

The service is so convenient, my provider is incredibly nice, and the technology is always reliable.

Amara

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

It's just been an easy process and this is the first time where I feel like my provider really wants to get to know me as a person and not just another appointment.

Randall

I have, and will continue to send people to Circle Medical. They are professional, and always answer my questions in a timely fashion.

Ean

The scheduling and administrative stuff that's usually a nightmare with healthcare providers is a total breeze w/ Circle. I have an amazing doctor who is attentive to my needs and provides excellent care.

Monique

My provider is very understanding and non-judgemental. She shows care for her patients. And I appreciate the convenience of being able to speak to a provider on telehealth.

Heidi

I've already recommended it to someone else frustrated by their doctor not taking their ADHD symptoms seriously, which is so often the case.

Emerson

Very helpful, professional, and courteous service.

John

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!

Hillary

Easy to book an appointment, huge selection of days and times and you can use different providers. Everyone is helpful and respectful.

Alicia

I chose Circle due to the convenience of seeing a provider via a virtual meeting. I work a lot of hours that sometimes unpredictable, so virtual visits definitely come in handy.

Aydan

Easy to schedule appointments, easy to use the app, got the care I needed quickly, friendly providers, quality care.

Olivia

Easy to use. Friendly provider. Easy to explain symptoms without judgement.

Felicia

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

Nicole

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

Russel

I’m very likely to recommend Circle Medical because of the progress that I have made. My provider has made it possible for me to accept and understand my ADHD with the upmost positivity and total honesty. I have never been able to love and accept myself till now.

Van

The provider listened, understood, and helped. Everything you look for. The appointment was convenient. I’m scheduling an appointment for my husband!

Heidy

The care I’m receiving is excellent. I love that I can access all my information from my phone. I also love that care coordinators respond quickly to my messages.

Axel

Joining Circle Medical has saved my life. I was so lost and didn't know why or what was wrong with me. I took a chance and downloaded the app, and had an appointment in the comfort of my own home within a week. I'm now getting the help I always needed and it has been a game changer.

Giada

Oh my word! This experience has changed my life. No more wasted time in traffic, being exposed to others’ germs, long waits in the ‘waiting’ room. I’ve gotten the help I didn’t know I needed. And the providers are consistently working with me to tweak things or address anything else that might not be quite right. I have cried tears of happiness at having hope again, and how much better I feel!

Lindsay

I’ve had an amazing experience. I liked how I was able to read up on the providers to find the right fit for me. The one I chose is absolutely the right fit and has worked with me to find the correct dosage of medication.

Sandoval

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

This service saves me hours a month waiting in a doctors office, driving to and from. This is time I get to be home with my family. My provider at Circle Medical is not only friendly but extremely knowledgeable.

Mario

The staff that looks out for me...cares for me! I feel they have a very genuine concern for my wellbeing! That means the world to me. It's not just a quick face-time chat, or that feeling of ever being rushed, I truly feel my provider, who's been with me for some time now, actually cares about my health and how best to keep me in the great shape I am now!

Katie

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.
