Renee Carlson, FNP-C
Board Certified, Family Medicine, 13 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I love being a medical provider! I relish the challenge of determining how to help patients feel better, and love the relationships that come from that. My experience in Emergency Medicine and Primary care give me insight in how to keep my clinic patients out of the ER, while recognizing more emergent issues that require aggressive management. 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? My goal is to be the first resource for patients regarding their physical and behavioral health needs. I love managing my patients' acute and chronic issues, but I am confident in identifying when patients need a specialist to help them feel better. I see myself as the quarterback in a patient's healthcare team; I help integrate input from other specialists. Then I use my relationship with and knowledge of my patient to help them utilize specific recommendations. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I have been married for 22 years, and love that my husband still makes me laugh every day. We have two teenagers who keep us on our toes, and a beloved dog, Jonah. I love to be outside, working in my gardens or hiking with my dog, and I am an amazing cook.

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

Maximillian

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

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

Love the convenience and privacy!

Kim

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

Ana

My provider on Circle Medical is the first I’ve ever had that makes me feel heard and taken care of.

Heaven

Comfortable experience, and from my home.

Brock

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

Moe

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

I have tried multiple telehealth options and I have found Circle Medical to be the best one for me. The providers are attentive, informative and don't make you feel rushed. Thank you Circle Medical for helping me to get my mental health back on track.

Francisco

I like being able to talk face-to-face to a provider without having to take a whole day off of work to go to doctor's appointment, and I can get primary care and other services all in one place.

Rhianna

The convenience is amazing. I can always find an appointment with the same person at a time that works best for my schedule. Also, I love the ability to text questions whenever I want. I get answers within the same day. Sometimes in an hour. It feels like a concierge service. I can call whenever I want. Make an appointment when I want, and get quick answers to all of my questions.

Seamus

My provider is wonderful and so accomodating. I've been to psychs in the past that have been very rude and clearly wanted to get the visit over with ASAP, but she never rushes, she listens to me cite my complaints and praises about my current treatment plan, and then responds with true care.

Serena

Accessibe, efficient, and I really like my provider's approach to my concerns and partnership in treatment planning. I feel validated, heard, and respected. Love how streamlined the app makes everything including the chat feature being open 24/7. Feels like I have open/quick access and flexibility in getting my needs met.

Maxine

I was able to schedule an appointment quickly and complete my diagnosis and prescription within the same week. My provider was caring, communicated clearly, and willing to answer questions.

Manny

Easy to schedule and do appointments, the biggest plus for me is that the prescription is sent immediately after the appointment to my desired pharmacy with no delay and if I need to change pharmacies that's also extremely quick.

Jameson

Easy to connect with a medical professional and excellent communication from the patient coordinators.

Nehemiah

My provider is great and very attentive and a great listener. This app makes my life so much easier and convenient when it comes to keeping up with my health.

Lawrence

Circle Medical has made everything easy from scheduling appointments to obtaining my prescriptions. My provider is also very easy to talk to and knowledgeable.

Efrain

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

I have had the most positive and uplifting experience with Circle Medical. My provider is absolutely wonderful! She listens and answers all questions with a kindness and compassion that just makes me feel heard and understood!

Ariel

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.

Princess

The app is easy to navigate and book appointments. Also being able to reschedule is great for someone like myself who works on call and has a difficult time keeping appointments.

Roger

Has always been super helpful! The video conferencing capability is wonderful. I've actually gotten help with eczema and the provider was able to confirm and treat without a problem.

Jamya

Ease of use, and an amazing practitioner. My absolute favorite of all time in my life.

Sarah Jane

My care provider is phenomenal and the ability to book appointments and complete them online is so convenient.

Dora

I love having a primary care provider to work with me on getting the correct medication needed to function. I love the convenience of the telehealth appointments as well.

Tiffani

My provider was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and listened to me, she made me feel like me & what I'm going through matters. Circle Medical has excellent providers. Plus the customer service/patient care reps are great. I chatted with 2 and they were able to assist me in a timely fashion. I already booked my next appointment. I'm so happy that I chose Circle Medical.

Ashley

I have had a wonderful experience overall. As a stay at home mom of 6 kids my schedule is schedule and finances are stretched tight. Circle has convenient appointments times, with caring medical professionals, and accepts my insurance so the cost is low.

Tricia

I love the convenience and ease of scheduling appointments. The providers I have interacted with have been great! They really care about their patients.

It feels like a concierge service. I can make an appointment when I want, and get quick answers to all of my questions.

Jo

I love speaking with my provider, she always listens to me and takes the time to be interested in me as a person!!

Erica

My provider was easy to work with. She's also licensed in both CA and FL where I split my time - which makes my medical care sooo much easier! She was lovely ♥️.

Jacki

A friend told me about it. I was extremely hesitant. Was I ever surprised. The process was easy. The provider was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable about my decision

Alexus

I absolutely love my provider. I have seen many doctors in the past, but she was the first who actually listened, understood, and gave me hope.

Noah

Awesome service, many appointment times available, caring and thorough medical care. Perfect for people with busy schedules.

Hanna

The turnaround time to get an appointment and see a provider was so quick and easy; everything is setup with the neurodivergent brain in mind from the way the app is designed to appointment reminders and calendar syncing. My provider made me feel heard and she kept our appointment focused on the task at hand (so important for adhd minds!)

Jenna

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.
