Board Certified, Family Medicine, 11 years of experience
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? It is important to encourage patients to take an active role in their health. We should merge physical and behavioral health and be a champion of wellness for the whole patient. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my patients thrive. Serving others and advocating for wellness is where my passion lies. I truly enjoy connecting with each patient and learning more about their lives so that I can provide the best care possible. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I enjoy spending my time outdoors; primarily snowboarding, boating, and sailing. I love traveling with my husband and our daughter. I’m a bit of a foodie and love to explore new cuisines.

I am very impressed by Circle Medical and its providers. I have already recommended that my husband and son join.

Kiersten

Circle Medical has been very easy to use. I use Circle Medical for my ADHD treatment and it has been amazing. My provider is fantastic, the hours are flexible, and the reminders help keep me on track. I was sick earlier in the year and needed immediate care, which I was able to schedule in minutes. I used to use MDlive for my primary/urgent care, but I’ve switched entirely to Circle.

Mario

Great, highly skilled, and supportive providers. Also, the app is easy to use, and I get quick responses to questions

Andy

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

They listen. I finally got put on meds that help.

Jonas

It’s just easy for a working mom in between calls when I have about 20 mins or so to actually care for myself and my health right from home.

Hana

Very easy to use and great providers. Mine is very personable and helpful.

Jack

I was listened to, given advice and got a chance to say what worked for me in the past. We then went through some questions and got me the meds I needed.

Rylan

I feel like I was listened to and recieved a proper diagnosis and treatment. Also very convenient.

Katherine

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

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

Tara

I moved to a new area and wasn't sure how to proceed with primary care. I reached out to Circle Medical just because I needed someone to assist with my prescriptions. But now that I am seeing them, I will rely on them for my PCP needs going forward. Thank you.

Michelle

Circle Medical made it easy to get tested and diagnosed. The medical professionals are first rate. Quick response to follow-up questions and always on time.

Shaun

Easy scheduling. Quick responses on the app. Super friendly staff and the providers are thorough and comprehensive with their questions and exams. I never feel rushed. I feel like this is a concierge experience.

Tiara

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

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.

Mike

Circle Medical has been so amazing with me from the provider to customer service. They really do care about my concerns. It has been so easy and simple.

Nigel

Quick, simple new patient forms and insurance info. Quick access. Great connection and no technology troubles!

Lorena

I love my doctor, she is so helpful, listens to me and we both come to an agreement which is incredible. I have found in my own experience and hearing others that so many doctors don't work with their patients and my doctor does. The app is also super easy to use and every time I have had a problem I get an answer right away. Thank you!

Megan

I like the simplicity and consistency of interaction with the app; scheduling appointments and chatting without the nonsense back and forth missed phone calls and voicemails is a tremendous relief.

Steven

Circle Medical works around my crazy life. My meetings are fast but thorough and professional, and it's very affordable.

Mickey

Circle Medical made accessing care easy. Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help, and Circle Medical made it easy for me to find a remote provider. From the beginning I felt respected, listened to, and cared for.

Cossna

I have ADHD and this format of meeting with providers is very ADHD friendly. It makes it easy to make appointments and the reminds and app are helpful.

Adalyn

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

Rhianna

Very professional service, extremely convenient and has greatly improved my life. Saves me very intimidating visits to regular doctors that don’t take into consideration modern day issues or considerations. I feel taken care of but also understood.

Precious

Excellent customer service and support. I usually avoid the doctor's office at all costs but my provider here is really nice and pleasant. Definitely a game changer for my health! Thank you :-)

Patrick

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

My provider has been really attentive. When I reached out for customer support on what I thought were side effects of a new medication, I received replies promptly.

Shelby

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

I like being able to talk face-to-face to a provider without having to take a whole day off of work to go to doctor's appointment, and I can get primary care and other services all in one place.

Rhianna

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 services provided by Circle Medical are excellent and all my questions and concerns have been answered. I have had nothing but great experiences with them.

Sanai

Extremely responsive to concerns, rapid response to customer service issues.
