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.

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

Convenience. Flexible appointment times and helpful physicians. There’s always someone available to assist if I have an issue with my prescription or pharmacy.

Rianna

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

I like being able to talk face-to-face to a great 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.

Morgan

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 like the flexibility of virtual appointments.

Amanda

I knew I needed to get diagnosed but just too anxious to go out and seek a provider. The ease of online appointment has made me not cancel or miss appointments.

Averie

I have really bad anxiety just at the thought of making a call to make an appointment. This made it possible to get the services I need.

Will

The experience is a lot easier and quicker for me compared to driving to a doctors office and waiting and then talking to a doctor for a short amount of time.

Rosemary

It was amazingly fast to get an appointment compared to the wait times in my area for a mental health professional. The provider I am seeing is very personable and I feel like she understands me and always gives me opportunities for questions. I have never felt judged. I have used the chat support and received a response much faster than most doctors offices.

Aaden

The service is so convenient, my provider is incredibly nice, and the technology is always reliable.

Amara

My provider listened so intently and made sure to let me know my concerns were valid. I haven't been this comfortable with a provider in years.

Christian

Great doctors, great customer support, prescription is sent to my pharmacy electronically, payments are done internal (no third parties), easy and simple.

Dendra

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

Honestly my provider has been vastly more concerned about my needs than any doctor I've been too before, and I don't even have to leave my house. This has been an absolutely amazing medical experience.

Warren

Very understanding!! And absolutely adore the chat portal, where I can express how I'm feeling!!! Thank you Circle Medical 🙏 This journey wouldn't be possible without y'all's help! ❤

Casey

Changed my life for the best.

Tania

This has been the most helpful medical resource I’ve discovered. Quality providers, good service and factual conversation. I am very pleased.

Marlee

Circle Medical is the future of primary care! I have had great experiences with all of the providers I have seen, and I appreciate the convenience of attending appointments with the app. It is confidence-inspiring to be able to talk about sensitive medical issues from home or anywhere else. Love the speed and ease of booking appointments.

Jordon

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!)

Jenna

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

Cuts out the wait of waiting rooms and traffic, Have met with multiple providers when certain ones aren’t available and all have been very knowledgeable, positive and helpful. I really do think Circle Medical is the thing of the future.

Laurel

Because I felt very heard and wasn’t embarrassed or shamed for needing to look into ADD medication in my 30s.

Jewel

It was easy to navigate and I liked how the staff sent messages through the app to make sure I had all my documents uploaded.

Nathalie

I love the convenience of the app. My provider is wonderful. I feel like I’m receiving the best care I’ve ever received.

Coleman

I felt listened to! I’ve met with medical professionals in the past who dismissed my complaints, but my provider actively listened to me and addressed my issues.

Evangeline

I’ve worked with other medical providers and hands down this is the best outlet for someone who needs real help in all facets of their life. The Circle Medical team is also the fastest I have seen in responding to issues and fixing any problem. Friendly doctors who care…that’s all you could truly want!! Thank you

Kaylin

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.

Giada

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

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

Circle Medical is super-convenient, respectful of your time, and far superior to long waits and far-off scheduling with in-person doctors. I am super glad I discovered this.

Terrell

The staff that looks out for me...cares for me! I feel they have a very genuine concern for my wellbeing! That means the world to me. It's not just a quick face-time chat, or that feeling of ever being rushed, I truly feel my provider, who's been with me for some time now, actually cares about my health and how best to keep me in the great shape I am now!

Katie

Amazing staff who are looking to do everything they can to help you with any problem you may have. I was able to get an appointment within a few days for my first consultation compared to a couple months with another service I used to be with. All around it was a great decision moving to Circle Medical, couldn’t be happier.

Gerald

Quick, kind and professional in communicating with me.

Jerry

A friend told me about it. I was extremely hesitant. Was I ever surprised. The process was easy. The provider was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable about my decision

Alexus

I work all day and I have to take time off of work to visit the doctor. This is so much more convenient.

Eleanor

I recommend Circle Medical to everyone. Before it would take 6 months to make an appointment, then I'd have to take a day off work, it would take 4 hours to go through and see the doc. Between driving there, checking in, waiting in the big waiting room, then the small waiting room, seeing the MA then finally the doc, it would be a huge day-eating event. Circle Medical makes it so easy! I don't need to take a day off work, no waiting in waiting rooms, same day appointments, you can't beat it!

Rodolfo

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

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

Jenny

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

I needed a script for a CPAP machine and don’t have a lot of vacation/PTO time right now so telehealth really fits my situation. I am thoroughly satisfied with my experience!
