What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider? I am passionate about being a healthcare provider because it is an excellent opportunity to impact the health of our communities. As a provider, it is a great way to show concern and care to patients by sharing knowledge and helping patients to care for and love themselves. I love educating and empowering patients about their health. 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 role as a primary care provider is to treat each patient as an individual. Holistically, each patient has different needs and it is the responsibility of the provider to make sure physical and behavioral needs are addressed. Establishing a rapport will guide providers and the patient to approach solutions to the patient's healthcare needs. Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time? I am very competitive and love playing board games with family friends. I enjoy traveling and visiting state capitols, state parks and national parks. I also appreciate being captivated by a good book.

Don't take our word for it.

We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.

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

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

Every interaction has been great. The team has been very responsive and attentive to my needs and dedicated to the improvement of my health.

Jaiden

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

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. My provider has already helped in 2 sessions and I started my prescription within days. I have to say, I am already feeling better simply taking the initial steps. A big thanks to this team!

Madalynn

They are quick, professional, and responsive by app. They also take my insurance — what more can I ask for?

Sharon

This has been a great experience! My provider actually listens to me & helps to come up with solutions to my complaints. I would absolutely recommend this service.

Owen

Very comfortable atmosphere, didn’t feel rushed. Was very impressed with the report after each visit. I have had several bad experiences prior to trying Circle, and honestly probably would have given up. Very happy so far.

Kendall

Easy to schedule. My provider is great at answering my questions and really listens to my concerns!

Selena

Providers are really engaged and show lots of interest on helping me get on track with any issues.

Pablo

Provider very punctual, efficient, and informative. Easy to use. Helpful for my needs.

Jodi

Telehealth has given me access to healthcare that without it, I would have to days off of work to obtain. Ease of access has been a life saver.

Zechariah

Circle Medical has been very easy to use. I use Circle Medical for my ADHD treatment and it has been amazing. My provider is fantastic, the hours are flexible, and the reminders help keep me on track. I was sick earlier in the year and needed immediate care, which I was able to schedule in minutes. I used to use MDlive for my primary/urgent care, but I’ve switched entirely to Circle.

Mario

I have, and will continue to send people to Circle Medical. They are professional, and always answer my questions in a timely fashion.

Ean

Provider was very nice, attentive, she listed to me and i am very satified.

Laura

My provider is attentive and listens to me needs. She addresses any issues I have. She is never late to our meetings.

Remi

Their support has been quite helpful. Apparently certain meds are very hard to get right now but they are fighting for me. As someone with an auto immune disease, telehealth during Covid has been invaluable. I cannot risk getting sick, but must continue my mental health treatment.

April

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

Natasha

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

I've had a great experience with this service. The provider is friendly welcoming understanding. The process is very easy.

Damon

My provider was very understanding, professional, friendly, and thorough. So convenient. Definitely recommend.

Blake

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

Dayna

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

Baron

Circle Medical provides competent services that I cannot get in the rural area where I live. My provider is thorough, friendly, knowledgeable, and she listens.

Paisley

I felt heard. I felt educated by the provider. There’s so much stigma and such a shortage of psychiatrists, I felt alone and judged, but Circle was different.

Debbie

Process is seamless. Team is professional. It could not be easier to work with them.

Harriet

I have sent this app to three of my friends who were having issues with a competitor and they switched and haven't look back. The amount of appointments, the ability to choose your provider and the range of the appointments available in one app.

Raven

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.

Arthur

Easy to schedule appts, easy to use the app, got the care I needed quickly, friendly providers, quality care.

Indigo

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

Very convenient. I was shocked that I could get inexpensive mental health services so quickly. Very pleased.

Marina

Easy to schedule appointments, easy to use the app, got the care I needed quickly, friendly providers, quality care.

Olivia

Easy, fast booking, respectful treatment, great documentation and communication. My provider listens to me, takes my input into account and treats me like an equal, not like an annoyance. Can't recommend enough, A+++++

Tommy

Finding a good and reliable remote healthcare provider to diagnose and treat ADHD is extremely difficult. Circle Medical has made this process easy for me and I am thankful I chose Circle Medical.

Zander

With Circle Medical I don’t have to wait 3 hours to see my primary care physician, I can reschedule my appointment if necessary and their support team is always helpful and polite.

Tyrone

Video appointments save a ton of time. All the providers have been very friendly, prompt and informative.

Jamir

The providers are very empathetic and I always feel comfortable discussing my issues.

Dira

My provider has been amazing, its quick, easy and you're not waiting months for appointments!

Catalana

I moved to a new area and wasn't sure how to proceed with primary care. I reached out to Circle Medical just because I needed someone to assist with my prescriptions. But now that I am seeing them, I will rely on them for my PCP needs going forward. Thank you.

Michelle

I like being able to talk face-to-face to a provider without having to take a whole day off of work to go to doctor's appointment, and I can get primary care and other services all in one place.
