Renee Aulisi, FNP-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 13 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? The primary care provider role should encompass the needs of the individual on a wholistic basis. Caring for someone's emotional/behavioral needs is just as important as their physical health as each of these can affect the other. The primary care provider should act as an advocate for their patient and by caring for them in the physical and behavioral aspect of medicine does just that. What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I have been in healthcare since 2008 and every patient interaction has been rewarding in its own unique way. Taking it to the next level and providing primary care has been fulfilling because I know my patients are well cared for and trust me with their life, health and wellness. I have continued to provide treatment for chronic and acute illness, as well as ADHD and birth control counseling. I also provide treatment and preventive counseling for STDs and PrEP in a discrete and professional manner. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I very much enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures (mainly through food!). I enjoy being outdoors, participating in various activities such as bike riding, hiking and running. I participated in my first Walt Disney World half marathon in 2019 and am getting back into the race world and am always open to suggestion of where to run next! I also enjoy visiting my friends and family that live in different places throughout the country.

Great, highly skilled, and supportive providers. Also, the app is easy to use, and I get quick responses to questions

Andy

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

Immanuel

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 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 was extremely easy to sign-up and utilize the app. From the first time I ever heard of the app, I was in an appt within several hours and paired with an AMAZING provider that is very sensitive to my needs and concerns.

Cailyn

My provider is awesome. She is professional yet very compassionate and listens incredibly well. I always walk away feeling like I've been heard. I trust her.

Mr provider is great. I feel he is thorough and cares about my well being. I also like that it's affordable even without insurance.

Jase

Circle Medical was able to get me the help and care I needed when I needed it most. Local doctors and health services were too booked to be able to help me soon enough. Circle got me connected with health professionals quickly and with ease. Quite simply, Circle saved my life.

Reese

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.

Circle Medical’s process was easy and intuitive made even better by a professional and kind provider. As a practice manager myself, your platform impressed me!!!! My provider’s “bedside manner” is warm and while I have insurance and could have gone elsewhere, I still chose Circle Medical.

Tthey have been extremely helpful, and my provider has been extremely kind and helping. She made me feel comfortable and better immediately during our first visit.

Gilberto

I love my doctor, she is so helpful, listens to me and we both come to an agreement which is incredible.

The app is also super easy to use and every time I have had a problem I get an answer right away. Thank you!

Megan

My provider is so genuine and insightful and I truly get value from our sessions! It's extremely easy to set up, navigate and just hassle-free.

Someone always responds and assists me with my questions like how to change pharmacies or reschedule my appointment.

Phoebe

I really appreciate the personalized care. I live in a rural area where healthcare is hard to come by.

I’ve had an amazing experience. I liked how I was able to read up on the providers to find the right fit for me. The one I chose is absolutely the right fit and has worked with me to find the correct dosage of medication.

Anna

I have been extremely happy with the entire staff, alwasy so willing to help me in any way from appointments to assistance with insurance. I have already recommended Circle Medical to my sister, who struggles with many of the same issues that I do.
