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.

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

I receive a higher level of interaction and care from my provider at Circle than I did from the PCP I had for many years at another clinic. I feel like I have an advocate in my health journey.

Stephen

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

Melanie

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

Lorena

Fast, easy, and the providers are professional and kind and easy to talk to. You can tell they care to give the best care.

Jon

I appreciate how simple it is to connect with a provider. Mine has been a pleasure to work with and she has met all of my needs. I’m so glad I found Circle Medical.

Frances

My provider is so thoughtful in her questions and thoroughly listens and takes the time to come up with a plan that works for ME. There is no one-size-fits-all, and as a mother of five as well as a small business owner, this rings especially true. With Circle Medical you can expect them to take their time (but not too much! Convenience is key in 2022!) and tailor an individual plan suited perfectly for you. You can expect them to care about you as a person and not a number. I am so thankful I found Circle Medical but especially during these busy times.

Sasha

I recommend Circle Medical because there’s no other app that actually just goes straight to the point in helping your needs; that being needing ADHD diagnosis or anything else that has to do with with your physical and mental health. There are no complications with speaking with the Circle Medical Team let alone any problems period.

Roxane

My interaction was one with care, and I was asked more questions into my “issues or problems.” It didn’t feel like I was talking to a typical doctor, but rather someone who was genuinely concerned with my problem.

Samantha

I have been using Circle for half a year and never had an issue. Questions were answered within the time given. My provider has been there for me 1000%. Never late!! Pleasant and caring always asked how she can HELP!! I have only good things to say. You're wasting your own time, employer's time, gas and cash going to a doctor's office.

Andy

Convenient, effective, and efficient heath care provider. It’s the modern way to get heath care.

Bill

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

The service is easy to use and my provider is amazing. I feel very comfortable and that she has an interest in my overall wellbeing.

Jade

I felt seen and heard when I talked to the provider. I did try a couple of the competitors and I could tell they were just going through the motions. The provider I am working with is great, personable, and made me feel really comfortable.

Reese

Very comfortable atmosphere, didn’t feel rushed. Was very impressed with the report after each visit. I have had several bad experiences prior to trying Circle, and honestly probably would have given up. Very happy so far.

Kendall

The process has been so easy and every care team rep I have encountered has been kind and courteous no matter how silly my question.

Elaina

Providers are compassionate, supportive and clear

Hailey

I’m very happy with the service that Circle provides me with. It’s easy to make appointments with short notice or in advance. Being able to chat in between appointments is an awesome feature and the timely responses I’ve received are always appreciated. I actually have referred a friend to Circle already and she is very happy as well.

Wendy

My provider has made all the difference. She honestly and genuinely goes out of her way to help me. As a person with serious ADHD all my life I found someone who makes the difference In how I feel. She always has my very best interest at heart. She’s an incredible person and I feel that she has empathy and believes in what she’s doing.

Crista

I recommended it to my wife, who is now a patient with Circle based on just how simple, easy and convenient it is. Without Circle we wouldn't have had the time to work on our health, and we'd both be in a worse place. Thank you!

Cassie

I work in concrete finishing, & have very little time during my week. Circle makes it possible for me to still be able to see a provider. Absolutely ESSENTIAL service!!

Connor

So fast and flexible getting an appointment. As someone with ADHD and anxiety looking for a doctor is a daunting task and keeps you from getting the care you need. They also actually listen to you and what’s bothering you, working with you to come up with the best course of action.

Cloe

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

Nehemiah

It was easy to use. The provider was extremely attentive, and actually listened. Coming from a primary care office that had terrible client service, Circle Medical was really a breath of fresh air. Thank you to this team for helping me get the treatment I need.

Malik

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

Jaiden

They really understood and quickly diagnosed me and got me the treatment I needed, thanks guys!

Santino

I felt heard. I felt educated by the provider. There’s so much stigma and such a shortage of psychiatrists. I felt alone and judged, but Circle was different.

Princess

I always feel heard and comfortable during my appointments.

Marvin

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

Super easy to schedule. Practitioners seem to care about the patient and aren’t judgemental about patient’s complaints/symptoms.

Heather

I already recommended it to some friends. I love going through you guys. Most caring provider I have had. She actually listens to me and makes sure I am well taken care of. Absolutely would recommend you guys to everyone. Such a quick and easy way to get in touch with some very kind and caring providers. You guys are the best!

Anabelle

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

Mike

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

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+++++

Tommy

After dealing with Remedy and Path and various start-uppy places during the pandemic where I had no access to actual certified providers and was dealing with therapists and social workers who were unable to provide me with real diagnoses or prescribe the most effective treatments, my intake at Circle was such a delight, I felt so seen and heard and listened to and like I found a place for all of my needs. I plan to look into much more than just behavioral health through Circle going forward!

Jaeden

User friendly app and straight forward process. Both providers I've seen are caring and want the best for you!!!

Frank

I like my provider and the ease of appointments at home is great.

Lana

Circle Medical has helped me when I felt helpless.

Mira

I feel so much better!! I am so grateful for Circle Medical. Thank you all for listening to me and getting me the help I needed!

Jules

So easy to work with and around my busy schedule. My provider is amazing and I am loving the medical care that I am receiving.

Nathanael

I have already referred friends! Absolutely amazing team of providers, very convenient, and very easy to work with.
