What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? Being a healthcare provider is such a fulfilling profession in that it allows me to help patients in need. Being able to diagnose and treat patients' medical concerns and see them come back feeling better is very rewarding. 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 should not only help treat medical ailments but also should assist in disease prevention ensuring the optimal wellness of both body and mind. I believe it is important for primary care providers to be transparent with their patients in order to build a trusting relationship that can ultimately help achieve better patient goals. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? When I am not working, I am busy homeschooling my kids, taking them to parks, or traveling with family whenever there's a chance. I also like trying out different restaurants/cuisines.

This system, the efficiency, and care behind it is the best that I have come across. I have been uncomfortable addressing issues like ADD and ADHD as an adult, so I put this off for years.

The provider I spoke to was much more helpful than I expected. Instead of telling me what I thought I wanted to hear, she told me what I NEEDED to hear.

Kierra

Circle Medical appealed to me because they clearly explain the process from start to finish on their website. The FAQ was particularly helpful in understanding how the tele-medicine approach works, and what I needed to do on my end. The app is user friendly, it was straightforward to set-up my account. I like that all of the necessary actions can be done via the app. The intake interview went smoothly with my health care provider. She was professional, polite and thorough. I feel that I received an accurate evaluation.

Nathanael

As a long-standing healthcare worker myself, I am very familiar with the healthcare system and how difficult at times it can be to get an appointment with a provider. Circle Medical makes it easy to receive care at my convenience. The providers I have seen are knowledgeable and supportive of my needs. I would highly recommend Circle Medical.

Davis

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

I have an amazing provider. She understands my ADHD and depression better than any other provider/doctor/therapist I've ever had a session with in person. She's helped me out of one of my most difficult times with her assessments and kept me on track thanks to the ease of communication and accessibility of Circle. I honestly wouldn't be here today without Circle or my provider.

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.
