Board Certified, Family Medicine, 8 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I choose to be a primary care provider because I feel it is the best way for me to help people. I am passionate about providing education to help my patient’s better understand their health. 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’s role is to be there for their patient’s physical and behavioral health needs. Both when they are sick, to provide acute care and when they are healthy, keeping them up to date on preventative measures. When treatment is necessary, it is a primary care provider’s role to help their patients understand the options and choose the treatment plan that fits them best. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I recently moved to the DC area. In my spare time I like to hangout with my family and friends, garden, play board games and make art. My most recent art project is trying stained glass.

I have had nothing but a good experience with my provider. I have been able to get the help I need and have been able to regain control of my life.

Owla

Circle Medical has been very easy to use. I use Circle Medical for my ADHD treatment and it has been amazing. My provider is fantastic, the hours are flexible, and the reminders help keep me on track. I was sick earlier in the year and needed immediate care, which I was able to schedule in minutes. I used to use MDlive for my primary/urgent care, but I’ve switched entirely to Circle.

Mario

Circle Medical is a game changer for me and my health care. Phenomenal service.

Haley

Provider was wonderful, the medicine she prescribed worked overnight. I was amazed at how fast the healing started.

I feel heard by the staff, and they listened to my medical history and I feel like they have my best interest at heart. Everyone has been wonderful and the convenience of the app can not be understated. Would absolutely recommend.

Dylan

Circle Medicine gave me access to care that if I had not been able to access through telemedicine I most likely would not have gotten it. Not to mention the ease of use, which is an absolute 10. Technology at its finest.

Mark

I’ve worked with other medical providers and hands down this is the best outlet for someone who needs real help in all facets of their life. The Circle Medical team is also the fastest I have seen in responding to issues and fixing any problem. Friendly doctors who care…that’s all you could truly want!! Thank you

I’ve been through a few online doctors and psychiatrists and Circle has provided the most professional providers I’ve encountered. They truly care about their patients. The app is also easily navigated and has multiple options of care!

Ashlynn

Circle Medical is easy to use and accepts a lot of insurances. I felt like my provider cared about me and we have begun to form a relationship. In regular offices I always feel rushed or unheard but somehow Circle Medical feels more personal. Requesting a refill is easy and you can check on the status.

Anna

I LOVE my practitioner from Circle Medical. She is caring and careful. She adjusts my meds as needed. She has made a difference in my health and well being.

Danielle

My provider is very thorough and thoughtful. She takes her time and listens to her patients. While healthcare seems to have become a factory-like business, Circle Medical provides patient-centered care, in a concierge-like manner. I’m very happy!

Aria

Quick, knowledgeable, and professional service. Easy to use and much, much faster than in person visits.

Seymour

The process was quick and very efficient. The provider was very knowledgeable and I could tell that she really cared.

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.

Simone

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

Circle Medical is a much more convenient way to see a doctor. No taking days off work, sitting around in waiting rooms or fighting traffic to make the appointment.

Lilianna

Very professional service, extremely convenient and has greatly improved my life. Saves me very intimidating visits to regular doctors that don’t take into consideration modern day issues or considerations. I feel taken care of but also understood.

Precious

It's been a great platform so far. The response time and availability of the team have been the best.

TJ

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

My provider makes things so easy to understand, she’s kind and upfront, and very knowledgeable. I always leave our meetings feeling confident about what we’re doing.
