Board Certified, Emergency Medicine, 20 years of experience
Tell us what makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider. My focus in medicine is to promote optimal health and well-being. This is achieved through good practice and caring, listening and addressing each patient's concerns. 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? I believe that a well-rounded approach including nutrition, fitness and kindness is fundamental to good health. This is also incorporated into my practice. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I enjoy many outdoor activities and enjoy many seasonal treasures from viewing fireflies in the early summer to the fall color-change in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

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

I absolutely appreciate my provider. She is respectful and very approachable. Every experience has been positive.

Ross

My provider is absolutely amazing. Very compassionate, listens, provides feedback, and takes her time. I feel very comfortable and confident with my care.

My provider has been very helpful in helping me find the right treatment. She is patient and through. The platform is user-friendly and easy to use.

Carly

Great providers, amazing availability, and fast/friendly customer service all from the comfort of my own home.

Dayanara

The service and care my provider has provided for me since being a patient has been second to none! It's changed my life to be honest. Highly recommend Circle Medical!

Thomas

After struggling with finding a doctor and navigating appointment management systems and nebulous cost expectations, Circle was a breath of fresh air that gave me a clear path towards getting care and getting everything else out of the way.

Tobias

The providers have been wonderful appointments are easy and always on time. The staff is quick and very responsive in chat.

Fernanda

Care is personal and effective. I appreciate them taking a moment to understand how I am doing. Never rushed.

Very smooth and easy process to get in touch with knowledgeable providers who care. The patient care team is always quick to respond in resolving issues as well. Highly recommend!

Terrence

Easy to schedule appointments, the chat is super responsive, and everyone I’ve talked to is friendly and helpful.

Pando

The provider was pleasant to work with and made me feel comfortable to talk about my symptoms. The whole process was very easy and stress free.

Daniella

It’s so easy to use and I’m able to schedule same day virtual appointments. The provider I see is very thorough, extremely knowledgeable and always kind and considerate. I’ve been able to communicate easily through the chat and always get a response within a few hours. The best part is my insurance is accepted so there is very little out of pocket for me. 10/10 would definitely recommend to anyone!

Aracely

My provider is great and very attentive and a great listener. This app makes my life so much easier and convenient when it comes to keeping up with my health.

Lawrence

It is a very well organized system, efficient and easy. My provider has specific ADHD training and you let us know how your ADHD program rolls (up front). No one likes surprises. My provider was kind and helpful and I got a follow up on our discussion and what I can do to empower myself NOW. Thanks Circle.

Jasper

I’ve worked with other medical providers and hands down this is the best outlet for someone who needs real help in all facets of their life. 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

It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.

Ash

With Circle Medical I don’t have to wait 3 hours to see my primary care physician, I can reschedule my appointment if necessary and their support team is always helpful and polite.

Tyrone

My primary care provider is so nice and helpful. The system is very easy user friendly, and the prices are reasonable compared to many other companies.

Stella

I have an amazing provider. She understands my ADHD and depression better than any other provider/doctor/therapist I've ever had a session with in person. She's helped me out of one of my most difficult times with her assessments and kept me on track thanks to the ease of communication and accessibility of Circle. I honestly wouldn't be here today without Circle or my provider.

Amira

Virtual visits are far easier and more convenient. The scheduling process is top-tier and the medical staff is great.

Nathen

Convenience. Flexible appointment times and helpful physicians. There’s always someone available to assist if I have an issue with my prescription or pharmacy.

Rianna

Good service, easy to use, knowledge providers. Much more helpful than I expected from a "virtual" service.

Nicole

The efficiency of not having to go to an office and the flexible hours are great!

Tina

The care and concern of providers, ease of access and use on app and the speed at which things move when dealing with your providers is excellent. I could not be more pleased or grateful to have a provider that listens.

Josh

Ease of use, super convenient. Medical professional took time interviewing me and addressed my needs and concerns,

Thor

It was accessible, period. I could get an appointment that was not months out like most local doctors. Gave me records that documented my history. Made it possible to receive care online/virtually.

Rosemary

There was no waiting list. They accept a wide variety of insurance. I felt like I was heard and the provider was very non-judgmental.

Krish

Has always been super helpful! The video conferencing capability is wonderful. I've actually gotten help with eczema and the provider was able to confirm and treat without a problem.

Terrance

Been an overall positive experience where I feel heard and respected by doctors and staff.

Heath

Appointment availability: I cannot get an in person appointment where I live (a big city) for 6 weeks. This app allowed me to connect with a medical professional the next day. (Same day was available as well). Professionalism: I felt that in my two appointments, I was treated with respect, not judged, and I was able to express my issues and thoughts to someone who was actually listening.

Leanna

I love my care provider and the app is great. It makes my life much easier.

Matt

I have NEVER had healthcare that was this accessible. Thank you.

Melanie

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

Easy to schedule and do appointments, the biggest plus for me is that the prescription is sent immediately after the appointment to my desired pharmacy with no delay and if I need to change pharmacies that's also extremely quick.

Jameson

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

Nicole

I have been extremely happy with the entire staff, alwasy so willing to help me in any way from appointments to assistance with insurance. I have already recommended Circle Medical to my sister, who struggles with many of the same issues that I do.

Ayana

This was my first experience using something like this and the entire process was very helpful. The staff responded promptly when I had questions and I absolutely love my provider. I was very nervous about the process but she made me feel comfortable and helped me feel like I wasn’t alone. I am so happy I found Circle Medical

Asia

Convenient & and efficient system. Services like this benefit patients and the country. This will save Americans from millions of hours of waiting in clinic lobbies, reduce emissions, reduce fuel consumption, reduce traffic, and drive efficiency in medical records and billing. All these things have a multiplier effect.

Siena

I have had an excellent experience with Circle Medical and their staff. Everyone has been ready to answer my questions, and openly looks to help me with my needs.
