Board Certified, Family Medicine, 4 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? As a certified nurse practitioner, I am passionate about breaking down barriers for Americans to access quality healthcare. By practicing on a virtual platform, I'm able to put my passion to work and really maximize patient outreach. I love to see the impacts of my practice and the improvements of health outcomes take shape right before my eyes. 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 imperative for primary care providers to support and engage their patients as active partners in their physical and behavioral healthcare. This partnership encourages health awareness, mutual accountability, and is proven to contribute to overall wellbeing. In my practice, I prioritize establishing a trusting rapport by actively listening and validating patients' concerns and emotions. The trust gained and this safe environment for open dialogue, establishes mutual respect and oftentimes assists me to identify more information of substance that can supplement my clinical process and plan. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I was born and raised in a small town in central Kentucky and currently reside in Lexington. I come from a family of four girls, my sisters are my best friends. I love to jet-set off to new destinations at every chance I get! I make sure to immerse myself in the culture and live like a local as much as possible. While at home, my two dogs Boomer and Bode are always by my side.

Oliver

I found an amazing provider on Circle, she really cares about my wellbeing and listens to me, and we even have some laughs! I truly appreciate her and I know that she truly cares! Thank you! ❤

Jermaine

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

Jonas

Ease of use, and an amazing practitioner. My absolute favorite of all time in my life.

Sarah Jane

My provider is attentive and listens to me needs. She addresses any issues I have. She is never late to our meetings.

Remi

The provider was very helpful and I felt she genuinely cared. Appointment was scheduled for next day. Quick, efficient, great service.

Kamari

Quick, kind and professional in communicating with me.

Jerry

I found an amazing provider who has helped me more in the last few months than a team of specialists over the course of nearly a decade of care.

Valentin

Circle is so easy to use! The reminders for appointments are very convenient. I tried to make appointments to be medicated for years and the nature of my disorder made it feel impossible. I genuinely feel like having such convenient and consistent access to a provider changed my life. The provider I see was so patient and understanding of my hesitation to be medicated, she explained every step of the process, and helped me find an option that worked for me. I’m experiencing relief for the first time from symptoms I’ve had my entire life because of this program.

Jaydon

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

Rick

I have had nothing but a great experience all around. The providers are great and the online staff has been helpful every time I’ve needed anything.

Amanda

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

Provider was wonderful, the medicine she prescribed worked overnight. I was amazed at how fast the healing started.

Paxton

It is so convenient to be able to get medical care from home via the telehealth system. I really appreciate the availability of providers and seamless integration of care within the app. My first appointments with my provider were also really pleasant, she was thoughtful and listened and it didn't have the same rushed and sterile feel that so often you get in a standard medical office environment. So far I am very happy and have already recommended it to friends.

Bradyn

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

My provider is the most helpful primary care physician I have ever had. Very easy to set and have appointments, very happy with the service.

Korbin

My first interaction with my provider was a positive experience. He listened to my story and we had many things in common. I love having a provider that is also diagnosed with ADHD. This way we can treat my condition properly on a common ground approach. Thank you for being there for me!

Ben

They are quick, professional, and responsive by app. They also take my insurance — what more can I ask for?

Sharon

Easy and convenient, providers have great personalities. First time I actually felt listened to and heard.

Devin

The providers have been exceptionally responsive and giving me great advice. I can get an appointment often within hours if I need something urgently.

Giana

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

Nathen

The best care provider I've ever had.

Rover

Circle Medical has helped me find a provider that I am comfortable with and otherwise wouldn't be able to have as a primary care provider due to where I live. It also has helped me get help with my ADHD whereas I wouldn't be able to as easily with where I live.

Asher

It is quick and convenient, especially compared to traditional healthcare.

Nicholas

Ease of care, excellent provider who listened to my concerns, video apts from home on the weekend which makes it so much easier to have an appointment.

Annalise

I feel so comfortable with my provider and the whole process is super easy and manageable!

Melissa

I have tried multiple telehealth options and I have found Circle Medical to be the best one for me. The providers are attentive, informative and don't make you feel rushed. Thank you Circle Medical for helping me to get my mental health back on track.

Francisco

I have a great working relationship with my provider. It is really easy to get care and feel cared for even on a virtual meeting.

Garrett

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

I love the app and support from my PCP. Great communication and engagement before and after appointments.

Krish

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 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.

Joanna

Circle Medical is ultra convenient, and my provider is thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. This is the future of healthcare!

Lilian

Easy to schedule and the providers are very kind and helpful and knowledgeable.

Geoff

My provider! I have felt heard, believed and taken care of by her. I am so happy to telehealth and having access to a wonderful provider through Circle Medical.

Mithra

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.

Kennedy

Providers make me feel seen, heard, and validated in my adversities and experience. The accessibility is huge and a life saver. It’s so hard to have the courage to seek help for something you believe you struggle with but have been dismissed and shot down before when you have tried to seek out help in the past. Having the option to be assessed virtually saved my life and has completely changed me for the better.

Autumn

I have struggled for years with my health issues, but always ran into barriers in getting affordable treatment. With Circle Medical, I saw a provider, received a diagnoses, and am already on treatment. All within a few days! They listen and also make getting help so easy.

Amber

Access is convenient, and good experience with clinician.

Samantha

Circle Medical’s process was easy and intuitive made even better by a professional and kind provider. As a practice manager myself, your platform impressed me!!!! My provider’s “bedside manner” is warm and while I have insurance and could have gone elsewhere, I still chose Circle Medical.
