Monica Stepherson, FNP-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 7 years of experience
Tell us what makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider. I have been a nurse practitioner for over 7 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. My passion is in patient education and assisting patients in achieving their health and wellness goals which in turn improves their quality of life. My goal is to address health on all levels - physical, mental and emotional. 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 the primary care provider for patient care is to listen to the patient’s needs in a therapeutic manner. Primary care providers must listen to the patient in order to develop a treatment plan centered around the patient’s preferences. Together through effective communication, a treatment plan can be initiated with the goal of improving patient outcomes. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am married with four children and two grandchildren. I love to read, listen to music, travel with my family and tend to my plants. Participating in activities to improve my mental health is essential, therefore, I meditate daily, write in my journal and limit my exposure to social media.

Roger

Easy process, you can do it in the own comfort of your home.

Ana

My provider was amazing. She made me feel comfortable and was super friendly. We found a course of treatment that has truly changed my life.

Rocco

My provider is very understanding and non-judgemental. She shows care for her patients. And I appreciate the convenience of being able to speak to a provider on telehealth.

Heidi

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 experience with Circle has been great. The first, and my current provider is very caring and understanding. From my first appointment until now I was able to talk to her without feeling like my words were falling on deaf ears. I've already recommended Circle to my friend and I would reommend that anyone who needs any help shouldn't hesitate and make the right choice. It's nice to be able to say that!

Adison

Very convenient and easy to use. You can choose any provider you want and also choose the exact issue you're seeking help for. All the staff is super friendly and help you in a matter of hours.

Lana

Process is seamless. Team is professional. It could not be easier to work with them.

Harriet

Convenient for a busy wife, mom, teacher, and grad student lifestyle. Helps me put my own health first.

Selina

It’s very easy to use, I can get same day appointments, my insurance covers it, providers are great and even though appointments are short they are effective at getting right to the point and listen to concerns and ideas of the patient.

Alijah

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

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

Its extremely user friendly, and the Doctors, PAs and NPs are of the absolute highest quality.

This app met me on my level for my neurodivergent needs, didn't keep me waiting, and has really kind and professional medical staff.

Kanesha

It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, so far I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.

Eric

Circle Medical has been absolutely amazing to me. I have been a patient at Circle Medical for about 7 months now and the experience has just been awesome. From day 1 I have been welcomed with open arms. I do video visits right in the comfort of my own home, how convenient is that? My provider is awesome, so sweet and comforting and motivating.

Ronisha

Ease of access to medical professionals. Great communication and response time.

Timothy

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

America

My provider is great. To be honest, for me it started out with wanting to privately get my ADD addressed. But now it is so much more. She seems genuinely concerned about my health and asks questions that help me address and focus on issues as needed. Highly recommend.

Matthew

Changed my life for the best.

Tania

Excellent service! Kind, considerate, and professional.

I referred a friend just yesterday. The reason why is I went through 5 other similar companies before I found this one that checks every box plus extra credit.

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.
