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 should be to treat the whole person, to help patients to achieve better overall physical and mental health through optimization of preventative medicine and up to date medical knowledge. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am originally from Montane, now living in Buffalo, NY. In my spare time I love to read, hike and camp with my husband and two dogs.

My primary care providers were a half hour away so I’d have to take 2 hours off work just to visit then. Being able to see a provider virtually on Circle Medical saves me a lot of time

I have had a wonderful experience with Circle Medical! As a business owner and busy mom, my time is extremely limited and the process of scheduling an appointment and speaking with a provider is seamless, fast and easy.

Thank you! Also glad to hear that you are opening clinics as well for times when an in-person visit is needed!
