The office was modern, digitized and immaculate. Dr. Ronay was very welcoming and professional, he saw me a little before my appointment time which never happens at a doctor’s office. He explained what tests I should get done and why as well as providing a timeline for each. The staff was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable. They explained in detail and definitely made me feel at ease.

Demeanor was interrogative and adversarial. Didn't address concerns completely, wasted time on patient intake questions that had already been answered in the forms, and then ran out of time.

Good, we were able to cover everything I came for. Courteous reception staff. The doctor tried to anticipate potential health risks that I hadn't considered when making the appointment, which shows that the doctors are invested in your long-term health. I wasn't aware that I could still get an HPV shot at 23, good catch!

While I have found it difficult to find great general practitioners, on my first visit to Dr. Ronay the service from him and the rest of the Circle Medical team exceeded my expectations. Specifically, Dr. Ronay is great at both putting forward a set of recommendations, e.g. what tests to take, health background, but also at highlighting a plan of action for specific ailments. As important, he provided the reasoning and basis behind his recommendations.

Tom is incredibly down to earth and kind. I immediately felt comfortable talking to him and working through my (long) list of questions. I spent 25 minutes with me and made a number of informed statements about our topic. I appreciate that he leads with proven info, then maybe drops a bit of opinion in there.

Dr. Ronay is knowledgeable, thorough, and took the time to answer my questions. I never felt rushed. He provides high quality, comprehensive care. It is obvious he wants to make sure patients are well taken care of. Circle Medical is super convenient offering Saturday hours, online appointment scheduling, and messaging should you need to contact your provider. The downside is that there is no one actually answering or manning the phone line so you need to be prepared to be caught in a perpetual loop of "press option---" that will never lead to a live person. This became a problem when my pharmacy needed clarification on a prescription and was not able to reach anyone. This is a failure of the system and is no reflection on the level of exceptional medical care--HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Tom was direct and straightforward. He explained some of the possibilities for what could be happening, and gave me solid recommendations with reasons for why they would help. The visit felt a little rushed (We only had so much time) but he took the time to explain the basics of how the body works and answer my questions without dumbing things down. Detailed explanations really help solidify why lifestyle changes are needed, and what kinds of changes will be helpful. The office definitely has a startup feel to it - if you're expecting the standard hospital style visit you're not going to get it. Overall it was a pretty great experience, I'll be going back!
