How treatment works

Appointment 1: Diagnosis

Your Circle Medical provider will complete a thorough, evidence-based, ADHD assessment during your first ADHD intake appointment.

A second ADHD appointment will then be scheduled to complete your ADHD assessment, diagnostic screening, and to start a clinically-approved treatment plan which may include medication if appropriate.

Please note: An annual physical exam (wellness exam), or documentation of one completed within the last year, is required prior to starting a clinically-indicated prescription treatment plan. If you have not had an annual physical within the last year, your Circle Medical provider is happy to offer this exam on our platform.

$150 cash pay
$40 average copay for insured patients*

Appointment 2: Treatment plan

Your provider will discuss your treatment plan with you and cover all necessary information on medication, should a prescription be deemed medically appropriate.

You will discuss a follow-up treatment plan, which may include 2-week follow-ups for a new treatment dosage, or monthly follow-ups for a stable treatment dosage.

Your provider will send any prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy, and we will alert you in the app when your prescription is ready for pick-up. This can take up to 24 hours after your appointment.

Please note that some pharmacies do not have all medications in stock, so a pharmacy re-route may be needed. If this is the case, just let your care team know using the in-app chat.

Appointment 3+: Monthly check-ins

Regular check-ups are designed to continue monitoring your health and progress towards reducing any symptoms associated with your ADHD.

How do I know if I need treatment or a prescription?

There are many ways to effectively treat adult ADHD, ranging from behavioral modification to various medications that have been proven effective in multiple clinical trials in reducing ADHD symptoms. Your provider will work with you to review the symptoms of ADHD you are experiencing and their severity and will review treatment options with you. If clinically appropriate, your provider may include prescriptions to clinically-approved ADHD medications as a part of your treatment plan. 

Types of medications that may help to treat Adult ADHD

There are a number of medications available that have proven effective at reducing the symptoms of adult ADHD. One of the most common is mixed amphetamine salts, commonly known by the trade name Adderall, available in various dosage strengths and as instant-release (IR) or extended-release (XR) formulations. Other commonly used options include atomoxetine (Strattera), bupropion (Wellbutrin), and lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (Vyvanse).

If prescription medication is found to be a clinically appropriate part of your treatment plan, your provider will review options for treatment, as well as their potential risks and side effects, and work with you to ensure you find the right balance of symptom reduction and minimum effective dosage.

Frequently Asked

ADHD Treatment

Can I get diagnosed with ADHD/ADD through Circle?

Here at Circle Medical, we can provide ADHD diagnosis and treatment for non-complex cases, over video appointments. Our ADHD Assessment process consists of:
• an ADHD intake appointment
• an annual physical exam if you have not had one within the last 12 months, and
• second ADHD appointment to complete the diagnosis process and discuss treatment options.

If you are diagnosed by one of our providers, we are able to provide ongoing healthcare in the form of regular check-ins, assessments, therapy referrals, and evidence-based prescription management if appropriate.

Please note that booking and paying for a video appointment with one of our Circle Medical providers does not guarantee a diagnosis, or a specific medication.

A full medical assessment takes into account the patient’s full health summary, evidence-based diagnostic tools, and other safety factors. Treatment is up to the provider's discretion. We encourage you to read through this entire FAQ for additional details.

Who is a good fit for ADHD/ADD treatment through Circle?

Our goal as a primary care practice is to make behavioral healthcare more accessible and integrated with primary care. However, primary care has its limitations and this means that receiving behavioral health treatment through Circle Medical is not for everybody. Please read the following carefully to understand whether Circle Medical may be a good fit for you.

You are a good candidate for receiving a comprehensive ADHD assessment and/or ADHD treatment through Circle Medical if:

- You have never had an ADHD diagnosis before but have always suspected you may have mild to moderate ADHD
- You have had an ADHD diagnosis (with a dosage of less than 60mg/day of a stimulant if on a stimulant treatment plan) as a child but have not taken medication for it in months/years and are noticing the effects on your work and/or personal life
- You have a current ADHD diagnosis (with a dosage of less than 60mg/day of a stimulant if you are on a stimulant treatment plan) and are on a treatment plan with another practice, but would like to explore switching over your treatment to Circle Medical

Circle Medical is a primary care practice, which means that we are not able to treat more complex cases of ADHD/ADD. Circle is not a good fit for you if:

- You require a controlled stimulant dosage of over 60mg/day
- You are regularly taking benzodiazepines for other treatment (such as Klonopin or Xanax)
- You are regularly taking opioids for other treatment
- You have a more complex mental health history that may require psychiatric expertise in order to treat safely (this can include hospitalizations related to mental health and/or having bipolar disorder)

Do you prescribe controlled substances such as Adderall, Vyvanse, or other stimulants?

The safety and well-being of our patients is our number one priority, and we take controlled substance regulations very seriously.

While we understand these medications are an important component of many patients' ongoing ADHD treatment, the prescribing of controlled substances occurs within the bounds of safe and effective medical care.

Our providers are required to conduct:
• An extensive medical evaluation, which includes an in-depth discussion of symptoms and goals of treatment.
• An annual physical exam with Circle Medical, or proof of an annual physical exam within the past 12 months.
• After your medical evaluation and annual physical, a controlled substance medication may be prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan at your provider's discretion.
• Monthly follow-up appointments (via video or in-person) to monitor your symptoms, discuss medication side effects and make modifications to your care plan.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

You must be currently residing in the state of treatment as well as have your primary pharmacy be in that same state in order to be a patient at our practice.

ADHD Providers

Am I seeing a psychiatrist through Circle?

Our providers are board-certified providers (MD’s/DO’s/NP’s/PA’s) who are able to provide a full scope of primary care services, including mental health, at Circle Medical. We do not have psychiatrists on our platform, however, our Circle Medical providers are able to provide a wide range of mental health care services in a primary care setting to provide access to life-changing care to our patients.

More complex mental health cases may require a psychiatrist to diagnose/treat. We encourage you to please read through this entire FAQ section for additional information.

Do I need to book my appointment with a doctor (MD or DO), or can I book my appointment with any provider (PA-C, NP, etc)?

You do not need to book your initial appointment with a doctor. You can book your appointment with any provider that we have available. Our providers are all trained in ADHD diagnosis and treatment. They all work closely together to make sure that we are providing the same excellent standard of care to all patients regardless of which provider you book your appointment with.

We have a 2 appointment process for our ADHD patients to ensure that we will be able to complete a thorough screening and diagnosis process.

How long are the appointments?

Our providers are required to conduct:
• An extensive medical evaluation, which includes an in-depth discussion of symptoms and goals of ADHD treatment (Appointment 1, 30 minutes).
• An annual physical exam with Circle Medical, or proof of an annual physical exam within the past 12 months (Appointment 2, 30 minutes).
• After your medical evaluation and annual physical, a controlled substance medication may be prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan at your provider's discretion (Appointment 2 or 3, 20–30 minutes).
• Monthly follow-up appointments (via video or in-person) to monitor your symptoms, discuss medication side effects and make modifications to your care plan (Follow up appointments, 20 minutes).


What is the total cost of ADHD/ADD diagnosis and treatment?


$5 - $50 average copay* 1st appointment
$5 - $50 average copay* 2nd appointment
$0 typical copay* for Annual Wellness Exam (if necessary)

$10 - $100* total, with $5 - $50* monthly follow-ups once stable.

*Note: Your specific copay is dependent on your health insurance coverage. We typically see patients with copays of around $0-$50 per appointment, but this can be higher if you have a high-deductible plan and have not yet hit your deductible this year. To confirm your specific copay estimate, you can click to book an appointment and you will be asked to input your insurance information so that you can receive your cost estimate before confirming the appointment.

Our ability to estimate your costs is dependent on your healthcare insurance's database, so we do not guarantee that the estimate you see is the exact amount you will be billed. For the most accurate estimate of your per-appointment costs, we recommend calling the phone number on the back of your insurance card to ask your insurance plan what your primary care appointment costs are.


$149 1st appointment
$100 2nd appointment
$100 Annual Wellness Exam (if necessary)

$249 - $349 total, with $100 monthly follow-ups once stable.


What insurance do you accept?

We contract with most PPO insurance plans. If you are a California Bay Area resident, we also work with a small number of HMO plans.

To verify if we work with your insurance, simply start booking an appointment online. You will be prompted to enter your insurance details and will receive eligibility results instantly as well as an estimate of your appointment cost prior to confirming your appointment.

Some PPO plans that we currently work with are:

Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, Blue Shield of California, Cigna, Health Net, Humana, and United Healthcare.

Plans that we cannot work with are:

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide care for patients who have Medi-Cal or Medicaid insurance. This is because we are not licensed Medi-Cal or Medicaid providers, so we are not able to provide care, even if these patients choose to pay cash instead of use their insurance. If you have Medi-Cal or Medicaid, please do not book an appointment with us, as we will be unable to provide care even if you do not enter your insurance information.


What do I need to do to prepare for my first appointment? Do I need to submit medical records anywhere?

If you've been diagnosed with ADHD beforeor have had an annual physical within the last 12 months, and have your paperwork available, you can email it to records@circlemedical.com. Be sure to use the same email address that you used to sign up when booking your appointment.

Note: This step is optional. After your first visit, we will facilitate getting your medical records from your previous provider.

If you haven't been diagnosed with ADHD before, or have not had an annual physical within the last 12 months, we are still able to conduct your ADHD evaluation and your annual physical exam via our telemedicine platform.

Note: An annual physical exam with Circle Medical, or records of an annual physical within the last 12 months, would be required before starting an ADHD treatment plan with a controlled substance medication.

Why am I required to have an Annual Wellness Exam in order to receive a controlled substance as part of my treatment plan?

Circle Medical always puts the health and safety of our patients first. For this reason, we require any patient that is going to receive a controlled substance as part of their treatment plan to either undergo an Annual Wellness Exam with a Circle Medical provider, or to submit the results of one that was conducted by a primary care provider within the past 12 months. This enables us to ensure that we are minimizing any potential health risks for our patients. 

What happens after I am prescribed?

After you are diagnosed, if you are prescribed medications, we will coordinate sending these prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.

You may have a 2-week follow-up if you are on a new dosage for treatment. Once your treatment has stabilized, you will have monthly follow-up appointments to maintain treatment.

If you have questions at any time, please feel free to chat with your provider and care team via our secure app.

What type of appointment do I book if I am looking for an ADHD assessment?

All of our ADHD appointments have the same initial step: booking a video appointment. We accept patients who have had prior ADHD diagnoses as well as patients who have never been diagnosed with ADHD before. You may book your first video appointment with any of our providers to get started.

Please note that booking and completing an appointment does not guarantee that you will have a confirmed ADHD diagnosis and controlled substance prescription. Your provider has full authority to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for treatment, just like with a traditional doctor's office. Please read this FAQ in its entirety to make sure you are a good candidate for treatment through Circle Medical prior to booking your appointment.

Can I get diagnosed in my first appointment? How long does it take to have a complete diagnosis?

It takes 2-3 appointments to have a full Circle Medical medical evaluation. Our providers are required to conduct:
• An extensive medical evaluation, which includes an in-depth discussion of symptoms and goals of treatment.
• An annual physical exam with Circle Medical, or proof of an annual physical exam within the past 12 months.
• After your medical evaluation and annual physical, a controlled substance medication may be prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan at your provider's discretion.
• Monthly follow-up appointments (via video or in-person) to monitor your symptoms, discuss medication side effects and make modifications to your care plan.

Real ADHD patient reviews


Helped me get my ADHD medication renewed when I couldn’t find an in-person provider after moving across the country. My provider is amazing and has listened to me, and followed through with my requests beautifully, making sure I’m educated and know what to expect each time I do make a decision/request.


I have ADHD and this format of meeting with providers is very ADHD friendly. It makes it easy to make appointments and the reminds and app are helpful.


I could not believe that I got an appointment for ADHD within hours. I had a terrible time trying to get an appointment with the group my insurance recommended. The health practitioner is knowledgeable and kind, and I feel like I'm getting both good physical and psychological support.


My first interaction with my provider was a positive experience. He listened to my story and we had many things in common. I love having a provider that is also diagnosed with ADHD. This way we can treat my condition properly on a common ground approach. Thank you for being there for me!


Locally, I’ve been on a waiting list for seeking an ADHD diagnosis for several months. But then I found this app, and within a few days, it’s done! I finally have that peace of mind and can move forward with a treatment plan. Thank you.


My provider is very professional and knowledgeable about ADHD. She also asks for and listens to my opinions about my treatment. The available hours are convenient. I don't have to take any time off from work.


So fast and flexible getting an appointment. As someone with ADHD and anxiety looking for a doctor is a daunting task and keeps you from getting the care you need. They also actually listen to you and what’s bothering you, working with you to come up with the best course of action.


My provider heard me out and helped me with my ADHD. I really appreciate how smooth it all was. Y’all are great!


I am very happy with my treatment and my provider has been really great and helpful. I came to Circle from Done, and Circle is far better at patient follow-up and working with me so that I can manage my ADHD in the best way possible. Also, I am very happy with the communication with Circle Medical.


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.


I finally found a provider who cares about me as a patient. She took time to go over my medical history and went to great lengths to go over how ADHD has affected me and we came up with goals that I want to achieve under her care. Medication isn’t the only avenue for someone living with ADHD.


I've already recommended it to someone else frustrated by their doctor not taking their ADHD symptoms seriously, which is so often the case.


It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, so far I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.


Joining Circle Medical has saved my life. I was so lost and didn't know why or what was wrong with me. I took a chance and downloaded the app, and had an appointment in the comfort of my own home within a week. I'm now getting the help I always needed and it has been a game changer.


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


It is a very well organized system, efficient and easy. My provider has specific ADHD training and you let us know how your ADHD program rolls (up front). No one likes surprises. My provider was kind and helpful and I got a follow up on our discussion and what I can do to empower myself NOW. Thanks Circle.


Because I felt very heard and wasn’t embarrassed or shamed for needing to look into ADD medication in my 30s.


My provider has been so kind, validating, and understanding. She’s helped me understand my ADHD and treat it.


Didn’t feel like my last doctor's appointments. My provider felt genuinely compassionate about helping me manage my life obstacles with my ADHD. Was skeptical at first but so glad I made the decision. Super affordable for the quality of care.


Love the convenience of the video consultations for refills on my ADHD medication!!! This is wonderful!!! Also love my health practitioner— he is fantastic!!! A++++++


I have already recommended it to many people. I’m a college student and my university health center has several barriers that make it almost impossible for anyone to afford the services required to get ADHD treatment through them, even with insurance. Circle Medical is convenient and being an app with reminders that I can call from anywhere makes it helpful to remember and make appointments.


The scheduling experience is really easy. The provider I chose was on time and she was great. She listened well and I didn't feel rushed or judged. Even though the journey to ask ADHD diagnosis has been a bit scary and anxiety inducing, I left the appointment feeling pretty good about everything.


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!


My provider is great. To be honest, for me it started out with wanting to privately get my ADD addressed. But now it is so much more. She seems genuinely concerned about my health and asks questions that help me address and focus on issues as needed. Highly recommend.


As a person with ADHD, going to the doctor in person can be really difficult. I used to put off making appointments because it felt like too many steps and I'd go without seeing a doctor for a few years at a time. Circle Medical allows me to access quality care from home and I never miss my appointments thanks to this convenience.


I find the staff and doctors to be very friendly and helpful. Going with Circle Medical has made treatment for ADHD so much easier for me!


It has been a good experience for me. If I have any friends or family members who are looking for ADHD help, I will recommend Circle Medical.


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


Circle Medical helped me get diagnosed for ADHD. It absolutely changed my life for the better. I’ve already recommended it to multiple people. Access to affordable care like this is amazing and I want everyone to benefit from it.


ADHD assessment was tailored to adult women. The expert gave nuanced additions and clarification to questions or statements. I feel much better equipped to handle life and am making progress in ways that seemed impossible before.


My practitioner was extremely friendly and empathetic, and an expert at ADHD and ADD so he knew exactly how to help me and with questions to ask.


I’m very likely to recommend Circle Medical because of the progress that I have made. My provider has made it possible for me to accept and understand my ADHD with the upmost positivity and total honesty. I have never been able to love and accept myself till now.


This service is a godsend. I am a single mom of 2 beautiful boys under the age of 5, at home full time as well as working full time. Having the ability to see my provider on a schedule that works for me and takes my insurance is awesome! Thank you guys for all your guidance and support on my journey through life!


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.
