Melanie Antonich, FNP-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 10 years of experience
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? With years of experience in both family practice and as a midwife I have had the privilege of working with thousands of patients. Whether it is helping a new baby safely into this world, working to discover the root cause of stomach pain, or holding a hand while emotional and psychological issues are dealt with – my role is one of a companion and guide along your health journey. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I decided to start a career in healthcare after losing a close family member to cancer. The experience of fighting cancer in our current healthcare system was eye opening. I found my loved one forced into the role of “patient” – disempowered, vulnerable, and scared. After that experience I became determined to be part of the solution. I am passionate about empowering patients to become active participants in their own health. I strive to meet you where you are, to help you set your own goals for where you want to be (mentally and physically), and then work on achieving those goals together. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? As a mother to 3 kids, my life is anything but boring! Along with the countless humbling challenges that motherhood brings, so too come some of the happiest (and silliest!) moments. We can normally be found digging in the dirt attempting to grow some of our own food, hiking down a trail breathing the forest air, or traveling to see as many of earth’s wonders as possible. I speak intermediate Spanish and am beginning to learn Portuguese.

It's very easy & convenient. I love that I can see my provider without having to leave my house & I can send a message to her anytime with quick response times.

Rigoberto

It works, is easy to use, I think the app is very good. I appreciated the several reminders for my first phone call, and I felt that my provider was very professional. She explains things well, and I feel cared for.

Katie

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

Amazing practice. Every staff member has been nice, helpful, and responsive. There are not enough adjectives to describe how great my experience has been with Circle Medical.

Darian

Very convenient. I was shocked that I could get inexpensive mental health services so quickly. Very pleased.

Keshawn

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

Xavier

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

Easy process for booking, very helpful chat feature, they able to take care of pretty much everything including preauthorization with my provider.

Ernesto

It was a very personal and safe experience that made me feel absolutely comfortable talking about my personal problems and helping me find a solution.

Sam

It was very easy to sign up. The provider I chatted with was very thorough.

Maggie

Awesome doctors. They take time to actually listen to your symptoms and things you’re dealing with instead of pushing certain medications.

Bri

I have been using Circle for half a year and never had an issue questions were answered within the time given. My provider has been there for me 1000%. Never late!! Pleasant and caring always asked how she can HELP!! I have only good things to say. Your wasting your own time, employers time, gas, and cash going to a doctor's office.

Madelyn

Very happy with the provider and experience. He spends his time with me and asks several questions about my health history. I never have gotten this time in an in-person office setting.

Brynn

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

Booking an appointment was incredibly easy. I receive quality care, quickly. That's all I ever wanted!

Samson

Circle Medical has been so amazing with me from the provider to customer service. They really do care about my concerns. It has been so easy and simple.

Nigel

This service is amazing and the provider I am working with is friendly and very personable. I will tell everyone about Circle Medical!

Amaya

Circle Medical made me feel comfortable and safe. The process was clear and thorough. The app is well built with very intuitive UI and thoughtful design. Every feature from submitting and validating insurance coverage to the in-app video conferencing was flawless.

Dante

Accessible & responsive. Person-centered care. Solution-driven providers who listen and take individual needs into account. Superb follow-through. Genuine providers/staff who want to help. Circle Medical has literally changed my life. My provider listens and offers solutions that have never been presented to me before. Because of that I have been able to achieve so much.

Madeleine

I felt heard. I felt educated by the provider. There’s so much stigma and such a shortage of psychiatrists, I felt alone and judged, but Circle was different.

Debbie

The efficiency of not having to go to an office and the flexible hours are great!

Tina

I love the app. Excellent. You could book on an appt early or on weekends. The provider I work with is knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate and very supportive and thorough!!!

It’s just easy for a working mom in between calls when I have about 20 mins or so to actually care for myself and my health right from home.

Hana

Very easy to schedule an appointment and meet with a provider. My provider has been very supportive and extremely helpful without judgement!

Brent

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

Video appointments save a ton of time. All the providers have been very friendly, prompt and informative.

Paisley

My provider made it easy to talk about my medical past, was understanding and listened to what was going on.

Derek

It is a very fair and speedy service. My nurse practioner is a wonderful person, who listens and understands my issues. She has been nothing but kind and willing to help me. I would completely recommend Circle Medical to anyone who wants to be taken care of.

Sunia

Bianca

I already recommended it to some friends. I love going through you guys. Most caring provider I have had. She actually listens to me and makes sure I am well taken care of. Absolutely would recommend you guys to everyone. Such a quick and easy way to get in touch with some very kind and caring providers. You guys are the best!

Anabelle

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

I have really enjoyed my experience. I love my provider, everyone I've interacted with has been kind, and the whole process has been easy.

Jaiden

I love the provider I’ve been consulting with. She’s attentive and helps me make informed decisions on any adjustments to medication.

Cesar

I recommended it to my wife, who is now a patient with Circle based on just how simple, easy and convenient it is. Without Circle we wouldn't have had the time to work on our health, and we'd both be in a worse place. Thank you!
