What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? Working as a healthcare provider gives me the reward of building relationships and being able to provide help to those in need. 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? The role of a primary care provider should be to provide preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices while taking into account the patient's beliefs and values. By taking into account the patient's beliefs and values a plan can be developed to provide the best care for each individual patient. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? In my spare time I enjoy hiking with my dog, spending time with my family, and cooking.

Britney

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.

Circle Medical made accessing care easy. Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help and Circle Medical made it easy for find a remote provider while I look for a provider in my area. From the beginning I felt respected, listened to, and cared for.

I have already recommended it to my sister who suffers many of the same things I do, mostly for the incredibly stress-free telehealth appointments as in person visits cause me anxiety and are harder to get to with my schedule.

Anika

The provider was pleasant to work with and made me feel comfortable to talk about my symptoms. The whole process was very easy and stress free.

Josiah

I get to decide my provider. Tons of appointments that are days away instead of weeks. Well-designed app. Medical/appointment notes are all in one location instead of spread around or buried in menus. Everything got done without any bumps or pushback or bs. I've never *ever* had such a painless experience.

Stacy

The service and care my provider has provided for me since being a patient has been second to none! It's changed my life to be honest. Highly recommend Circle Medical!

The scheduling experience is really easy. The provider I chose was on time and she was great. She listened well and I didn't feel rushed or judged. Even though the journey to ask ADHD diagnosis has been a bit scary and anxiety inducing, I left the appointment feeling pretty good about everything.

Jonathan

I have an amazing provider. She understands my ADHD and depression better than any other provider/doctor/therapist I've ever had a session with in person. She's helped me out of one of my most difficult times with her assessments and kept me on track thanks to the ease of communication and accessibility of Circle. I honestly wouldn't be here today without Circle or my provider.

Amira

I had struggled to find a primary care provider near where I live as I live in a very rural area and I found this via Google search and could not be happier with the service I have received since. Appointments available next day, easy app to use and friendly staff. Highly recommend!!

Well, Circle Medical has changed my life! I love Circle Medical because you have a plethora of providers available within a click of a button! Thank you!

Helped me get my ADHD medication renewed when I couldn’t find an in-person provider after moving across the country. My provider is amazing and has listened to me, and followed through with my requests beautifully, making sure I’m educated and know what to expect each time I do make a decision/request.
