What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I am passionate about helping people feel comfortable in uncomfortable situations. I have been given the amazing opportunity and responsibility to help people, and I take that very seriously. Most of all, I like to establish a real connection with my patients and treat them with compassion and empathy. 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? The primary care provider must see the patient as a whole individual rather than some symptoms and diagnoses. The role of the provider is to take into account the physical and mental health of the patient and have a well-rounded approach to help keep the patient healthy in all aspects. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am a mother of two little children. I love making cake pops and doing fun art projects. I also enjoy educating about pediatrics and breastfeeding on social media.

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

The service is so convenient, my provider is incredibly nice, and the technology is always reliable.

Amara

Always professional, always wise, always goes above and beyond!

Oscar

Convenient, knowledgeable, professional with a personal touch.

Charlotte

They have been beyond helpful. All of the staff have been kind and considerate and always get back to me in a timely manner. They have helped so much. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Jamarcus

I was able to find a provider to help me with my needs within 24 hours. Even though I’ve been trying to find a doctor locally, I was unable to receive help for months until I stumbled on Circle Medical. They were helpful and nice.

Jorge

I have had nothing but good experiences with my provider. She is very knowledgeable, caring, and non-judgmental.

Adeline

Friendly staff. Compassion for ailment, quick response and open schedules. Very knowledgeable team!

Gigi

Always easy to get a convenient appointment. Very accurate. This is the future of healthcare.

Leo

It’s just easy for a working mom in between calls when I have about 20 mins or so to actually care for myself and my health right from home.

Jess

Ease of use, flexibility with schedule, and the provider was informative on the medical issue while delivering care with a nonbiased approach.

Christopher

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

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

Appointment availability. I cannot get an in-person appointment in my city for 6 weeks. This app allowed me to connect with a medical professional the next day. (Same-day was available as well.) And professionalism. I felt that in my two appointments I was treated with respect, not judged, and I was able to express my issues and thoughts to someone who was actually listening.

Craig

Great service, This is very ideal for a person who can not make time to go see a doctor at a clinic.

Leah

Great providers and awesome response team — even during after hours. Overall, Circle Medical is a wonderfully committed healthcare provider, that goes the extra mile for their patients.

Brayan

The provider was very professional and I felt comfortable with the video appointment setting. Also, each appointment was punctual with no wait time.

Kash

As someone who has ADHD, simply setting up an account on the site was so easy. You can tell that this was made with neurodivergent people in mind. Things are just SIMPLE.

Ryan

Great selection of providers. They are kind and knowledgeable. Easy process - insurance accepted! Did my check in while at work, doesn’t get better than that!

Dayna

I DID refer a friend just yesterday. I went through 5 other companies before I found this one, you check every box plus extra credit.

Chelsea

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.

Phoebe

The practitioners are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, understanding, kind & they listen! I have been using Circle Medical for almost a year & I highly recommend it! :-)

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

I have been extremely happy with the entire staff, alwasy so willing to help me in any way from appointments to assistance with insurance. I have already recommended Circle Medical to my sister, who struggles with many of the same issues that I do.

Pablo

I love my provider. He is very thorough and is easy to get ahold of.

Kyle

I recommended it to my wife, who is now a patient with Circle based on just how simple, easy and convenient it is. Without Circle we wouldn't have had the time to work on our health, and we'd both be in a worse place. Thank you!

Cassie

I have been extremely happy with the entire staff, always so willing to help me in any way from appointments to assistance with insurance. I have already suggested Circle Medical to my sister, who struggles with many of the same issues that I do.

It has been fast and easy. The clinicians are great and I found my primary care through this. I love how they are even knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ stuff which is exactly what I've been looking for

Briggs

Everything about using Circle Medical has been great! My provider is amazing and always happy to help with any questions or concerns I have. The administration staff is also very helpful and answers my questions very quickly if I have an issue with my pharmacy, etc. I have recommended Circle to several friends and would gladly recommend them to anyone.

Kylie

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

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

Julian

Sincere and caring staff! Excellent communication.

Stewart

Quick, knowledgeable, and professional service. Easy to use and much, much faster than in-person visits.

I really appreciate the personalized care. I live in a rural area where healthcare is hard to come by.

My provider is quite possibly the best most personable doctor I've ever had the pleasure of speaking with!
