What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I am passionate about providing convenient, accessible, and quality healthcare to all. Being able to treat a person's whole body, including one's mind, is a very rewarding part of my job. 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? A primary care provider should know her patient on a more personal level, as there are many outside factors that can affect one's health. Understanding a patient's stressors, joys, hobbies, and family life is incredibly important in addressing overall physical and behavioral health. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am a huge Pittsburgh sports fan and love going to football, hockey, and baseball games in my spare time. I also enjoy trying new coffee shops, going for walks with my toddler, and reading.

Easy to navigate, personalized care and a provider who listens to me.

Allie

This service is incredibly convenient and the appointment availability is wonderful. If I have an issue a PCC responds to my messages very quickly and the providers (if needed) do as well. I cannot think of a single thing that would make this a better experience for me!

Gina

No matter where I live or move to with my job, I can see my provider on Circle Medical. I’ve been using Circle for over a year and absolutely love them.

Jamarion

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 is great, 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.

Alex

Circle Medical has ALWAYS helped me solve whatever health issue I’ve brought to them! There has never been a time I’ve left an appointment dissatisfied. As a fat individual with preexisting health issues, it is usually hard to find medical providers that actually listen to what I have to say rather than attributing everything to weight. It feels amazing to be heard and validated!

Boston

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 experience so far has been top notch really. From my provider's approachable manner and willingness to truly listen to me, to the after-hours service where I always received fast responses to my text messages, everyone has been so gracious. Circle Medical has been an important part of my new life. Thank you all so much.

Neil

My provider is just great. She has true concern for her patients. She listens and tries to understand my needs while providing educated suggestion to help me in my development. She shows that she has a heart!

Ginger

I feel like even though it’s virtual that my clinician connected with me. She is very knowledgeable and asks many questions to make sure the medicine I am taking is appropriate for me. I met another provider there when my chosen one wasn’t available and she made me feel the same way. I can trust both of these clinicians.

Shamar

Convenient, knowledgeable and friendly providers and excellent patient interface too, including scheduling.

Kali

Friendly staff. Compassion for ailment, quick response and open schedules. Very knowledgeable team!

Gigi

I already recommend Circle Medical to all of my friends who stress out about mental health things. Anyone who asks me, I tell them about it.

Kamora

Finding a good and reliable remote healthcare provider to diagnose and treat ADHD is extremely difficult. Circle Medical has made this process easy for me and I am thankful I chose Circle Medical.

Sarah

I have tried a few online medical providers and they did not have very good communication. Circle Medical has been great with communication and responses! Would recommend them to anyone!

Kymani

The app is an easy and efficient way to meet with knowledgable medical professionals and establish a care plan and I’ve had a very positive experience from the help provided to me.

Dominick

My provider is really knowledgeable about her job and is very compassionate. My interactions with the other staff has been great too!

Travis

My provider is FANTASTIC and I have already recommended Circle Medical to many people.

Candi

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

This service is incredibly convenient and the appointment availability is wonderful. If I have an issue a care team responds to my messages very quickly. I cannot think of a single thing that would make this a better experience for me!

Allison

I finally found a provider who cares about me as a patient. She took time to go over my medical history and went to great lengths to go over how ADHD has affected me and we came up with goals that I want to achieve under her care. Medication isn’t the only avenue for someone living with ADHD.

Eliza

My provider was attentive to my needs, listened to my concerns, and addressed them. Nothing more you could ask for.

Mack

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

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.

Chandra

I work odd hours and having remote access to healthcare make it so much easier so I don’t have to call off work or leave work.

Christian

It’s very convenient and flexible. The providers are very compassionate and foster an open environment that allows patients to take control of their health and well-being.

Jose

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

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

Remi

Informed, polite, and consistent staff, operating under an obviously organized system to provide quality care.

Landen

Excellent service! Kind, considerate, and professional.

Carrie

Very convenient, medical professionals are understanding and helpful in providing solutions

Luke

It has been fast and easy. The clinicians are great and I found my primary care through this. I love how they are even knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ stuff which is exactly what I've been looking for

Briggs

This is the first practice in over a decade where I actually felt heard. Advocating for yourself can be hard when you’ve had other practitioners who are dismissive and condescending. This practice is the complete opposite and a much needed breath of fresh air.

Natalie

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

Mylee

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

The appointments are easy to schedule and meetings are all virtual which is convenient with my work schedule. I was even able to schedule an appointment for Sunday which is awesome. My provider is very friendly and professional. Also very thorough. I highly recommend

Helena

I feel completely secure with my providers from Circle Medical to give me wholistic care above and beyond just the symptoms. I trust them, and that's very important to me.

Skyler

It was such an easy process, my provider may be one of the best I’ve ever had in my life

Cynthia

This has been a great experience! My provider actually listens to me & helps to come up with solutions to my complaints. I would absolutely recommend this service.

Owen

As someone who has ADHD, simply setting up an account on the site was so easy. You can tell that this was made with neurodivergent people in mind. Things are just SIMPLE.
