Board Certified, Family Medicine, 2 years of experience
What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? My passion for healthcare comes from knowing that I am able to provide compassionate care to a diverse community and people from all walks of life. This in turns allows me to build a rapport with my patients to give them the confidence to take control of those health and mental well being. 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? As a primary care provider my role is to provide quality care to prevent disease process not only physically but as well as behavioral health. My goal is to prevent diseases through lifestyle management in order to manage chronic and acute conditions. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I graduated with my nursing degree from Loyola University of Chicago. Post graduation - I worked at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and soon after as a supplemental nurse at the University of Chicago Medical Center. After working for five years as nurse - I went back to school for my masters in Family Medicine. As a Nurse practitioner I worked in the city f Chicago serving the population with acute and chronic health conditions.

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

Bernard

The process was very convenient and easy to do. I felt very comfortable with the practitioner and satisfied with communication back and forth.

Anabel

I’ve never had any issues with the app or my provider. My provider is very thorough and pleasant to talk to. The app is well designed and never buggy. Responses are fast and easy to navigate with the care staff. Circle is a life saver for me as a trans person. I’m so thankful to have found you all!

Kymani

As far as I’m concerned, this is the future of healthcare. I’ve transitioned all of my primary care to Circle Medical as well as my ADHD management. I’m amazed at the weekend and off-hour options, which are a lifesaver for a busy professional like myself. I recommend this service to anyone who is looking to get a PCP or evaluated for ADHD. Your customer service is top-notch and I’ve never had an issue with insurance or my prescriptions. I’m so glad I found your company!

Lenny

Easy process for booking, very helpful chat feature, they able to take care of pretty much everything including preauthorization with my provider.

Ernesto

My provider is great, easy to talk to, and addressed my concerns, tried a different approach to medication and it’s the first time ever it’s really worked for me.

Kris

Circle Medical helped me get diagnosed for ADHD. It absolutely changed my life for the better. I’ve already recommended it to multiple people. Access to affordable care like this is amazing and I want everyone to benefit from it.

Shyla

Circle Medical is super-convenient, respectful of your time, and far superior to long waits and far-off scheduling with in-person doctors. I am super glad I discovered this.

Terrell

Everything about the service and the people have been great. Always on time, nice to speak with, and they answer every question

Anika

I love my care provider and the app is great. It makes my life much easier.

Matt

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’ve used several online platforms for various medical needs over the last few years, and Circle has been the most comprehensive, as well as pairing me with an excellent provider who actually listens to my issues and concerns as well as taking into consideration what I think would work for me, and not just putting me on random medications to see what may or may not work. I felt listened to and respected, and believe my provider actually wants to help instead of just getting paid and speeding through our appointment.

Denisse

Great service. Professional providers. Never had an issue with billing or scheduling. Communication through the app has improved and availability has increased significantly. I’m seeing a massive improvement in my well-being and daily life thanks to their services and I couldn’t be more grateful. Thanks Circle Medical!

Dennis

My provider is amazing. So trauma-informed and willing to listen. She was able to support me in ways so many others doctors had not over the years simply by listening to my concerns and all the ways I had tried to treat my condition on my own. This practice is excellent and I'm so grateful to have found them. I highly recommend Circle Medical.

Samara

The providers are very caring and patient people. I appreciate their warm welcome and how they really care about the people they are helping.

Gabrielle

Circle Medical team members care about their patients, provide outstanding services, and deliver services timely and efficiently.

Darion

Circle Medical is ultra convenient, and my provider is thoughtful, professional, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. This is the future of healthcare!

Lilian

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

Mark

The care I’m receiving is excellent. I love that I can access all my information from my phone. I also love that care coordinators respond quickly to my messages.

Axel

It's so easy to make appointments, the messaging feature makes help SO accessible, and the quality of the providers are top notch. It's such a relief to be able to schedule an appointment the day I need it. I always feel so heard and so cared for.

Quinn

For a busy working Mom, this is the only way I can actually find the time to care for my own health.

Callie

Convenient, the app is easy to use and navigate, I love my provider. Our meetings are efficient, and she's been able to assist me with health-related issues outside of what I sought out the app for. I absolutely want to keep using Circle Medical for many years to come and have recommended it to friends and family.

Savion

Circle Medical is very convenient, costs are reasonable as a self-pay patient. And my provider is absolutely awesome!

Julian

Love the convenience of the video consultations for refills on my ADHD medication!!! This is wonderful!!! Also love my health practitioner— he is fantastic!!! A++++++

Katherine

It was amazingly fast to get an appointment compared to the wait times in my area for a mental health professional. The provider I am seeing is very personable and I feel like she understands me and always gives me opportunities for questions. I have never felt judged. I have used the chat support and received a response much faster than most doctors offices.

Aaden

I love my provider, she is now my general practitioner.

Dayna

Provider is amazing and so are the staff coordinators.

Riley

After struggling with finding a provider and navigating appointment management systems and nebulous cost expectations, Circle was a breath of fresh air that gave me a clear path towards getting care and getting everything else out of the way.

Aileen

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

Good service, easy to use, knowledge providers. Much more helpful than I expected from a "virtual" service.

Denzel

Circle Medical has been such a great platform to see a care provider! I have had such a great experience with the ease of using the platform as well as the providers. Thank you!

Nico

Circle is so easy to use! The reminders for appointments are very convenient. I tried to make appointments to be medicated for years and the nature of my disorder made it feel impossible. I genuinely feel like having such convenient and consistent access to a provider changed my life. The provider I see was so patient and understanding of my hesitation to be medicated, she explained every step of the process, and helped me find an option that worked for me. I’m experiencing relief for the first time from symptoms I’ve had my entire life because of this program.

Jaydon

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

The provider I was with was very professional, on time and took my requests/issues seriously and paid attention to me during the meeting. Many experiences with doctors, it seems like they aren't even listening and most likely drawing pictures on their note pads instead of treating you like an individual.
