What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I'm passionate about preventing hospitalizations and sickness by keeping patients well. 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 patients deserve not to be rushed through appointments and have all their questions answered. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? In my spare time, I love baking cookies, cakes, casseroles, pies, and bread. I think that we can have room for fun foods in our diet as long as we eat healthy 99.9% of the time. I enjoy powerlifting-style workouts but I don't currently compete. I love vegetable gardening and any outdoor fitness activity.

Don't take our word for it.

We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.

Circle Medical is easy to use and accepts a lot of insurances. I felt like my provider cared about me and we have begun to form a relationship. In regular offices I always feel rushed or unheard but somehow Circle Medical feels more personal. Requesting a refill is easy and you can check on the status.

Anna

Easy to book an appointment, my PCP is awesome! Fair pricing. I don’t have insurance and this really helps the underserved population that can’t afford big expensive medical bills.

Giancarlo

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

Ease of scheduling, customer service, my provider has been attentive and efficient, i can't say enough good things! Circle has literally changed my life.

Jill

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

Helpful, kind, understanding staff and medical professionals who take time to hear you! Thank you all. It’s been a game changer for me!

Felix

An extremely caring company, very responsive and went above and beyond when I was in crisis. Cannot recommend them enough!! Keep up the great work.

Zayne

My provider has been so kind, validating, and understanding. She’s helped me understand my ADHD and treat it.

June

My primary doctor that I see is very attentive, caring, and makes me feel comfortable at every visit.

Tyrie

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

Alden

Quick, efficient, and helpful care. Everything is clear and app is spectacular.

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

Gaige

Great selection of providers. They are kind and knowledgeable. Easy process - insurance accepted! Did my check in while at work, doesn’t get better than that!

Skyla

The practitioners are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, understanding, kind & they listen! I have been using Circle Medical for almost a year & I highly recommend it! :-)

Rosemary

Every interaction has been great. The team has been very responsive and attentive to my needs and dedicated to the improvement of my health.

Jaiden

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!).

Brynlee

My practitioner was extremely friendly and empathetic, and an expert at ADHD and ADD so he knew exactly how to help me and with questions to ask.

Uriah

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

It works, is easy to use, I think the app is very good. I appreciated the several reminders for my first phone call, and I felt that my provider was very professional. She explains things well, and I feel cared for.

Katie

Easy, fast booking, respectful treatment, great documentation and communication. My provider listens to me, takes my input into account and treats me like an equal, not like an annoyance. Can't recommend enough, A+++++

Tim

My provider has been amazing, very helpful and supportive. She’s very knowledgeable and sincere. I would definitely recommend.

Ayaan

It's easy to get an appointment. It's nice to be able to not have to sit in an office waiting to be seen. My provider makes me feel like she actually remembers me and I'm not just another folder slapped on her desk. It's very nice. She also discusses treatment with me instead of just throwing pills at me and saying do this or do that. I feel involved and in charge of my own health.

Louis

My provider was EXTREMELY helpful and informative, and the entire process was just simple and quick.

Wesley

I have recommended Circle Medical to several friends. The process, UI, and providers are very quick and caring. It is perhaps the easiest to use system I’ve ever seen. I highly highly recommend the organization.

Jamarion

The provider made appointments comfortable to talk and discuss my problems. It is easy to schedule and have access to messaging. Very affordable compared to others I have looked into.

Nicole

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.

Emilia

Easy to connect with a medical professional and excellent communication from the patient coordinators.

Nehemiah

My provider was very helpful and made sure all my concerns are addressed. Also the team made sure that my expectations are met. Thanks to the team and looking forward of the outcome of my transition with their help.

Paulina

The app, and the providers have been a great deal of help to me! And the convenience is wonderful as well. I honestly can't ask for better help. I'm really on a path to getting better and stronger so thank you.

Demetrius

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

Fernanda

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

Circle Medical has been of a great help. Telemedicine is now necessary and they make you feel like you are at home. The providers are very professional and kind. I loved them.

Zoe

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

It's very convenient and really knowledgeable staff.

Lissie

I was able to schedule an appointment quickly and complete my diagnosis and prescription within the same week. My provider was caring, communicated clearly, and willing to answer questions.

Luke

My provider is honestly the best I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Her “bedside manner” and the amount of care and concern she has for her patients (and patients as real humans, not just numbers) is beyond compare.

Orlando

The ease and quick turnaround for an appointment is addressing a dire strain on the current infrastructure of healthcare (one of which they refuse to address). My provider was also unlike any healthcare provider that I’ve met. She was nonjudgmental, kind, and not only advocated for informed consent, but her actions aligned with it. This is the future for healthcare and it is about time.

Sarah

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

My provider is wonderful and so accomodating. I've been to psychs in the past that have been very rude and clearly wanted to get the visit over with ASAP, but she never rushes, she listens to me cite my complaints and praises about my current treatment plan, and then responds with true care.

Serena

My provider is great and I feel like she really cares about my well-being as a person. She listens to any concerns I have and takes me seriously.
