Patricia Templeton, PA-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 10 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.

We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.

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

My provider is quite possibly the best most personable doctor I've ever had the pleasure of speaking with!

Clay

Didn’t feel like my last doctor's appointments. My provider felt genuinely compassionate about helping me manage my life obstacles with my ADHD. Was skeptical at first but so glad I made the decision. Super affordable for the quality of care.

Justin

It's easy to schedule an appointment. My practitioner is helpful, dedicated & tenacious in her pursuit to help me manage my condition.

Carina

I've already recommended it to someone else frustrated by their doctor not taking their ADHD symptoms seriously, which is so often the case.

Emerson

Exceptional Experience! From easy and convenient scheduling to a great doctor experience!

Sonya

My provider has been very helpful in helping me find the right treatment. She is patient and through. The platform is user-friendly and easy to use.

Carly

Fast and clear appointment and scheduling process. Knowledgeable providers. Responsive support staff.

Immanuel

I have really loved using Circle Medical. I use Circle for both ADHD treatment and as my primary care provider. I’ve had an easy time with making appointments, seeing my doctors, and I receive amazing care. I work long hours and it’s difficult for me to visit typical doctor’s offices, so it’s nice to have a well rounded online clinic. I also feel that Circle Medical has a great background and it feels more secure knowing that they are tied to a large hospital with a great track record.

Tripp

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

Kolby

With Circle Medical I don’t have to wait 3 hours to see my primary care physician, I can reschedule my appointment if necessary and their support team is always helpful and polite.

Tyrone

Setting things up was incredibly easy and stress-free. I love that the app uses my real name as opposed to what was legally given. And the app works really well, haven't had a single tech issue. Having this option for my appointments with my busy schedule is making my HRT treatment possible.

Alan

The provider was very professional and I felt comfortable with the video appointment setting. Also, each appointment was punctual with no wait time.

Judy

My provider is very attentive and always ask me the right questions that fit my issues. I love the communication the whole facility has even if its not my provider, someone is always there to help me when I have questions! 10/10!

Amirah

Very quick availability; very thorough and compassionate providers; easy to navigate the app; health insurance accepted and no hidden fees.

Kash

You guys have been so helpful in getting my meds and I love having the accessibility of talking to someone to help me with other questions that I may have. I actually have referred one of my friends to this service. It has helped me immensely.

Taliyah

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

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

Selina

I can take the appointment anywhere. I couldn’t find a psychiatrist nearby and resorted to virtual. Circle Medical is a doctor in your pocket and I love it. I love my provider too.

Demarcus

Great selection of providers. They are kind and knowledgeable. Easy process - insurance accepted! Did my check in while at work, doesn’t get better than that!

Dayna

User friendly app and straight forward process. Both providers I've seen are caring and want the best for you!!!

Frank

My first interaction with my provider was a positive experience. He listened to my story and we had many things in common. I love having a provider that is also diagnosed with ADHD. This way we can treat my condition properly on a common ground approach. Thank you for being there for me!

Ben

So convenient to do telehealth visits and to fit them into my schedule. I appreciate the providers have been trained to do the assessments and seem to have a lot of knowledge.

Titus

I feel so much better!! I am so grateful for Circle Medical. Thank you all for listening to me and getting me the help I needed!

Jules

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

I so appreciate the provider who is treating me. She is professional and caring. The app is easy. It has been a really good experience.

Miles

The provider I spoke with was very knowledgeable and listened to me. She explained things well and made me comfortable.

Carolina

Convenience, professional, confident. They are really doing a good job of taking care of me.

Rick

I absolutely love my provider. She spends quality time listening to me. It’s rare these days that a doctor is willing to SEE you, and I don’t mean see you as in pop in for an appointment and push you out the door. She is an active listener and sees that I want to change my life. She’s helping me do that!

Lana

I feel so much better!! I am so grateful for Circle Medical. Thank you all for listening to me and getting me the help I needed!

Makaila

No matter where I live or move to with my job, I can see my provider on Circle. I’ve been using Circle for over a year and absolutely love them.

Remi

Excellent service! Kind, considerate, and professional.

Carrie

My primary care provider is so nice and helpful. The system is very easy user friendly, and the prices are reasonable compared to many other companies.

Stella

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

Extremely responsive to concerns, rapid response to customer service issues.

Penny

Convenient, knowledgeable, professional with a personal touch.

Charlotte

Circle makes treatment accessible. In my area, providers are either not available at all or only available many months down the road. The service providers are very pleasant. Versus other options, where the service providers were rude and impatient, Circle actually has available appointments.

Iliana

Easy to use app. The provider that I see is exceptional. You take my insurance so my cost is extremely affordable. Great customer service. Super easy to make an appointment. Many appointment time/day options. I have nothing but praise for Circle Medical. Thank you.

Nathalia

My practitioner is amazing and has helped me so much. She is compassionate and truly cares about her patients.

Dallas

Easy app to use, the providers are so accommodating and helpful
