The Circle

Dr. Villalobos Character Analysis

Dr. Villalobos is Mae’s doctor at the Circle. She is beautiful and she loves being on camera, but her medical knowledge and ethics become suspect as she treats Mae based on comments from Mae’s watchers and she constantly violates doctor-patient confidentiality by offering up Mae’s medical information while livestreaming to Mae’s viewers.
