Tell us what makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider. I am passionate about forming strong bonds with my patients based on empathy and trust and ensuring they are an advocate in their healthcare through shared decision-making regarding treatment plans. 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? The role of a primary care provider should be to screen and assess for behavioral and physical health concerns early. Integrating the two together, and acknowledging that they are directly tied. To treat, as well as educate their patients on healthy lifestyles and promote wellness in their everyday life. A PCP should follow up and check in, to ensure they are getting the on-going support and monitor and that further speciality care and referral is not necessary. If so, collaborate with the necessary specialists needed. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I live in sunny San Diego and have two teenage daughters who play travel softball which takes up most of our time, but we love it. In my spare time (if I get any away from the kids :)), I enjoy golf, yoga, and vacationing anywhere tropical and warm.

Lincoln

Employees are easy to follow along in conversations. This site helped me understand myself better. It was easy to get treated without anxiety or feeling overwhelmed from in person contact getting in the way.

Valerie

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.

Simone

Locally, I’ve been on a waiting list for seeking an ADHD diagnosis for several months. But then I found this app, and within a few days, it’s done! I finally have that peace of mind and can move forward with a treatment plan. Thank you.

Braeden

Its extremely user friendly, and the Doctors, PAs and NPs are of the absolute highest quality.

Joy

Circle Medical helped me get diagnosed for ADHD. It absolutely changed my life for the better. I’ve already recommended it to multiple people. Access to affordable care like this is amazing and I want everyone to benefit from it.

Shyla

I’m a busy working parent. I love that I was able to get an appointment quickly with availability in the evening hours. The NP who evaluated me was thorough on intake/history and I was able to get much needed care. I’m excited that they will be able to provide my primary, preventative care too!

Tomas

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

Very convenient. I didn’t have to wait on hold to make an appointment. Was able to meet in the comfort of my own home. Provider was very professional. Straight to the questions, but felt personal and tailored to my pace.

So easy and EXCELLENT providers. Have been so very thankful for this service. It’s truly improved my life.

Amirah

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.

Levi

Excellent communication with providers. Friendly, affordable and transparent care.

Charlie

I have really loved using Circle Medical. I use Circle for both ADHD treatment and as my primary care provider. I’ve had an easy time with making appointments, seeing my doctors, and I receive amazing care. I work long hours and it’s difficult for me to visit typical doctor’s offices, so it’s nice to have a well rounded online clinic. I also feel that Circle Medical has a great background and it feels more secure knowing that they are tied to a large hospital with a great track record.

Tripp

Opportunity for an assessment of my health when local medical wouldn’t see me for more than 6 months.

Arabella

I have had a hard time with my primary care physician helping me explore ADHD treatment. I was not sure where else to turn. This was so easy and uses my insurance.

Adalynn

Amazing practice. Every staff member has been nice, helpful, and responsive. There are not enough adjectives to describe how great my experience has been with Circle Medical.

Darian

It’s so easy to schedule your appointments, never miss time off from work again! I use Circle Medical as my primary care provider and love the support and care I receive.

Britney

Very professional and non-judgmental. System is very easy to use.

Lindsey

Convenience, professional, confident. They are really doing a good job of taking care of me.

Rick

This is the first practice in over a decade where I actually felt heard. Advocating for yourself can be hard when you’ve had other practitioners who are dismissive and condescending. This practice is the complete opposite and a much needed breath of fresh air.

Natalie

Easy to schedule. My provider is great at answering my questions and really listens to my concerns!

Selena

I really appreciate the personalized care. I live in a rural area where healthcare is hard to come by.

Jules

Super convenient. Compassionate, amazing practitioner who takes a holistic approach to my care.

Arianna

I love Circle Medical! I have a very busy life with a constantly changing schedule and it can be very challenging to plan for my doctor's appointments. With my providers on Circle Medical however, I can meet with my provider any place that I feel comfortable talking about whatever is going on.
