The Circle Medical team is also the fastest I have seen in responding to issues and fixing any problem. Friendly doctors who care…that’s all you could truly want!! Thank you

Kaylin

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!).

I’m so happy that medical and mental health care accessibility has finally caught up to our “new normal” schedules and lifestyles. I’ve had an incredibly helpful provider for the past 3 months and every appointment has been exactly to-the-minute on time, professional, and convenient. I truly feel the care and helpfulness she has for me during our appointments, and I’m sure many others as well. Thank you Circle Medical for providing healthcare that doesn’t require me taking hours off of work to drive to and sit in a waiting room for a simple routine follow up/check in appointment every month. 10/10 quality care and reliability. I can’t thank you enough.

Izaiah

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.

Ezequiel

Through Circle Medical I have experienced immediately inclusive care. My provider set me immediately at ease. Being able to begin my transition with a medical service that sees me as I am in my authentic self; seeing me via vidio call made the first awkward public steps so much easier!

Monica

I feel heard by the staff, and they listened to my medical history and I feel like they have my best interest at heart. Everyone has been wonderful and the convenience of the app can not be understated. Would absolutely recommend.

Dylan

I have had nothing but a great experience all around. The providers are great and the online staff has been helpful every time I’ve needed anything.

Amanda

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 doctors are awesome, the best of the best!! Extremely happy!!! 🙏🏻🥰

Mike

My provider is excellent. She is so personable and remembers me. It is easy to use and appointments are available both early or late in the day.

Jane

The app was very easy to use. I didn't have any problems at all. I really like it. The provider I chose was very good and very thorough. Everything on the app work and was just easy to maneuver. Thanks for such a great experience!!

Kylie

I love having a primary care provider to work with me on getting the correct medication needed to function. I love the convenience of the telehealth appointments as well.

Macy

Circle is so easy to use! The reminders for appointments are very convenient. I tried to make appointments to be medicated for years and the nature of my disorder made it feel impossible. I genuinely feel like having such convenient and consistent access to a provider changed my life. The provider I see was so patient and understanding of my hesitation to be medicated, she explained every step of the process, and helped me find an option that worked for me. I’m experiencing relief for the first time from symptoms I’ve had my entire life because of this program.

Jaydon

My provider is very thorough and thoughtful. She takes her time and listens to her patients. While healthcare seems to have become a factory-like business, Circle Medical provides patient-centered care, in a concierge-like manner. I’m very happy!

Aria

My provider is really knowledgeable about her job and is very compassionate. My interactions with the other staff has been great too!

Travis

Fast, easy to use, excellent professional service. There are many lousy companies and scams out there, and this is definitely NOT one of them!
