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.

Convenient & and efficient system. Services like this benefit patients and the country. This will save Americans from millions of hours of waiting in clinic lobbies, reduce emissions, reduce fuel consumption, reduce traffic, and drive efficiency in medical records and billing. All these things have a multiplier effect.

James

My new provider is very nice and very helpful. The process was super simple and I’m able to schedule appointments easily

Stacy

Just amazing! My provider is down to earth, very knowledgeable, and respectful of my own experience as a healthcare provider. Circle Medical’s ease of access to the service, and responsiveness are models in the industry.

Shannon

I have already referred friends! Absolutely amazing team of providers, very convenient, and very easy to work with.

Mylee

The provider I have is amazing. She listens and can relate, has been there for anything I need.

Brody

Ease and simplicity of signing up, scheduling, communicating, and not having to waste time going to an office. Saves hours and hours of time per year.

Clarence

My provider was EXTREMELY helpful and informative, and the entire process was just simple and quick.

Wesley

Circle Medical has helped me find a doctor that I am comfortable with, and otherwise wouldn't be able to have as my primary care physician becasue of where I live. It also has helped me get help with my ADHD.

Mary

Circle Medicine has been a godsend for me because in my rural area there are not enough primary care physicians. I've had 5 PCPs in 4 years because they keep leaving. When I couldn't get a timely appointment with a new PCP, Circle Medical helped me, with care and concern. I highly recommend Circle Medical. I'm getting better care and health conversation with my provider than I did in person!

Dalia

Circle Medical made accessing care easy. Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help, and Circle Medical made it easy for me to find a remote provider. From the beginning I felt respected, listened to, and cared for.

Cossna

They really understood and quickly diagnosed me and got me the treatment I needed, thanks guys!

Santino

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

The convenience. I don’t have to miss or take off of work. They have available times that work around everything. The staff is always friendly and professional. I wish a lot more doctors did this.

Angel

Scheduling was easy. Appointments started on time. I needed help with some preauthorization stuff for a prescription and the response time was quick and efficient via chat.

Messiah

I was put together with a great provider. She is knowledgeable and patient and honestly she has better bedside manner than many of the therapists I have seen. The chat feature has been very useful. Response time is faster than many other medical services. I have enjoyed my experience with Circle Medical! I do not miss my old provider at all! Thank you.

Edgar

It works, is easy to use, I think the app is very good. I appreciated the several reminders for my first phone call, and I felt that my provider was very professional. She explains things well, and I feel cared for.

Katie

My provider…she is amazing. Also the support team for reminders, scheduling and questions. Wonderful experience!

Carl

The app makes everything really easy and both providers I've seen so far have been wonderful. I couldn't find any doctors in my area that weren't insanely expensive so this app has been a lifesaver!

Hana

Quick, kind and professional in communicating with me.

Jerry

The entire experience so far has been amazing, uplifting, and has given me a new lease on life. Anyone who is seeking the same medical care as I was should feel completely confident in Circle Medical, and their amazing staff.

Jonathan

Cuts out the wait of waiting rooms and traffic, Have met with multiple providers when certain ones aren’t available and all have been very knowledgeable, positive and helpful. I really do think Circle Medical is the thing of the future.

Laurel

Very reliable and kind service, very professional, providers are amazing! The app is great.

Cortez

An extremely caring company, very responsive and went above and beyond when I was in crisis. Cannot recommend them enough!! Keep up the great work.

Zayne

I get to decide my provider. Tons of appointments that are days away instead of weeks. Well-designed app. Medical/appointment notes are all in one location instead of spread around or buried in menus. Everything got done without any bumps or pushback or bs. I've never *ever* had such a painless experience.

Stacy

Excellent providers on staff. The patient coordinator team is fantastic as well. I def recommend. I am so happy with Circle Medical provider's services.

Katherine

I can get appointments anytime I need them from the comfort of my home and my prescriptions are always filled really quick.

Valentina

Circle Medical made me feel comfortable and safe. The process was clear and thorough. The app is well built with very intuitive UI and thoughtful design. Every feature from submitting and validating insurance coverage to the in-app video conferencing was flawless.

Dante

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

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

I have gotten my entire family to switch over to Circle Medical. It’s extremely convenient and has great providers.

I found an amazing provider who has helped me more in the last few months than a team of specialists over the course of nearly a decade of care.

Mala

The provider listened, understood, and helped. Everything you look for. The appointment was convenient. I’m scheduling an appointment for my husband!

Heidy

The Circle Medical team is responsive, thorough, kind, helpful and respectful, and listens to your needs.

Locally, I’ve been on a waiting list for seeking an ADHD diagnosis for several months. But then I found this app, and within a few days, it’s done! I finally have that peace of mind and can move forward with a treatment plan. Thank you.
