What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I find personal satisfaction with making a difference in others lives. I feel it is important to help others and as a health care provider it is a privilege to do so. 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? My roll as a primary care provider is to provide preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices. Identify and treat common medical conditions, both physical and behavioral. It is important to meet people where they are and to help them with meeting their needs. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I enjoy traveling and exploring. Outdoor adventures bring me joy and in my free time I can be found on the river, in the mountains or on a beach with my dog, Lucy.

Indigo

This service saves me hours a month waiting in a doctors office driving to and from. This is time I get to be home with my family. My provider at Circle Medical is not only friendly but extremely knowledgeable.

Ezequiel

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

The entire process was so easy and user friendly. I felt extremely comfortable speaking with my provider, she answered all of my questions with ease. Many were answered before I ever asked. I would highly recommend this service to anyone in need.

Jair

Employees are easy to follow along in conversations. This site helped me understand myself better. It was easy to get treated without anxiety or feeling overwhelmed from in person contact getting in the way.

Valerie

My provider was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and listened to me, she made me feel like me & what I'm going through matters. Circle Medical has excellent providers. Plus the customer service/patient care reps are great. I chatted with 2 and they were able to assist me in a timely fashion. I already booked my next appointment. I'm so happy that I chose Circle Medical.

Ashley

Every interaction has been great. The team has been very responsive and attentive to my needs and dedicated to the improvement of my health.

Jaiden

The whole process is so simple to use! This includes the new patient registration to the visits. The provider is absolutely a gem! The entire team is amazing. I recommend this service to everyone. For me, this is helpful due to my erratic schedule working in various rural Emergency Departments...I can take my appointment with me.

Killian

Always easy to get a convenient appointment. Very accurate. This is the future of healthcare.

Leo

The provider I have is amazing. She listens and can relate, has been there for anything I need.

Brody

Simple and easy. My PCP is absolutely amazing, super helpful, kind and understanding. It was also very affordable and convenient.

Lee

I could not believe that I got an appointment for ADHD within hours. I had a terrible time trying to get an appointment with the group my insurance recommended. The health practitioner is knowledgeable and kind, and I feel like I'm getting both good physical and psychological support.

Alexis

Circle Medical has finally given me access to the kind of care that not only works best for me, but also cares about me.

Alden

Very convenient for someone who has works contract jobs, and has to live in different places throughout the year.

Karlie

My provider is the best! And Circle Medical is very convenient. I was neglecting my health before I knew about Circle because I never felt like going to the doctors, but Circle has changed my life!

Sonny

Circle has been great for a busy, young, always-moving-around individual like myself and many other young professionals. Finding a primary care provider in a new city has always been a needlessly difficult task.

Devan

Awesome service, many appointment times available, caring and thorough medical care. Perfect for people with busy schedules.

Hanna

They accepted my insurance, easy to schedule an appointment, easy to communicate with my doctor and they have been helping me with my health in the comfort of my home.

MJ

It’s very convenient, lots of appointment times to chose from and I don’t have to leave my house or work to be seen

Dillan

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.

Emilia

I love the convenience and ease of scheduling appointments. The providers I have interacted with have been great! They really care about their patients.

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

So much easier than dealing with my antiquated primary care office! I used to have to wait on hold for at least ten minutes to make an appointment.

Venu

Opportunity for an assessment of my health when local medical wouldn’t see me for more than 6 months.

Arabella

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

Circle Medical ADHD treatment has changed my life for the better in so many ways. I love the ease of not having to go to a Doctors office. I travel for work and my travels are sporadic so being able to take a video/zoom appointment wherever I am at is paramount. I never need to worry about when my appointment is as long as I have cell service. It's just incredible. Plus I ABSOLUTELY love my provider. He is just awesome. I could go on and on about him.

Isabella

Ease of use, professional support, and excellent medical providers make Circle Medical a great choice.

Dalton

I’ve been very impressed by Circle. They are using technology to solve access issues in healthcare. The tech is impressive and the support staff and practitioners are very professional and kind. Well done.

Mikey

The providers are very knowledgeable, friendly and available. I’ve met with multiple providers, never had any issues.

Xavier

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.
