Anxiety / Depression Treatment
Yes, our Circle Medical providers are able to provide a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis of mild to moderate anxiety or depression.
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.
Our goal, as a primary care practice, is to make mental health more accessible and integrated with primary care. However, primary care has its limitations and this means that there may be instances where it is recommended that you see a specialist, or psychiatrist, for your care.
Circle Medical is a primary care practice, which means that we are not able to treat more complex mental health conditions/medication, such as:
• History of psychosis, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and bipolar disorder
• You are currently taking, or seeking a prescription for, Benzodiazepines, opiate pain medication, or controlled substance sleep aids
To see a list of states, please start booking an appointment. You will be able to select from all of the lists where we are currently practicing.
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.
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.
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 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.
The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

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.
If you've been diagnosed with anxiety and/or depression before and have your diagnosis paperwork available, you can email it to [email protected]. 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.
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.
It can take 1-2 appointments for a complete anxiety and/or depression assessment to take place and for a possible diagnosis to be made.
We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.
They accepted my insurance, easy to schedule an appointment, easy to communicate with my doctor and they have been helping me with my health in the comfort of my home.
This has been the most helpful medical resource I’ve discovered. Quality providers, good service and factual conversation. I am very pleased.
Circle Medical has been extremely patient-oriented and has helped me feel like I’m in good hands with my mental health, receiving my medications on time with no issues.
I felt like someone was finally listening and validating me. Other doctors treated me like I was seeking drugs and I couldn’t possibly have the problems or that they aren’t that bad and it’s my fault. Thank you so much for listening, asking me questions, and letting me answer.
Convenient, the app is easy to use and navigate, I love my provider. Our meetings are efficient, and she's been able to assist me with health-related issues outside of what I sought out the app for. I absolutely want to keep using Circle Medical for many years to come and have recommended it to friends and family.
It’s very convenient and flexible. The providers are very compassionate and foster an open environment that allows patients to take control of their health and well-being.
Very understanding!! And absolutely adore the chat portal, where I can express how I'm feeling!!! Thank you Circle Medical 🙏 This journey wouldn't be possible without y'all's help! ❤
The interface is extremely easy to use. My interactions have been extremely helpful and insightful with answering all of my questions. I never felt judged or uncomfortable with my interactions.
My provider is very understanding and non-judgemental. She shows care for her patients. And I appreciate the convenience of being able to speak to a provider on telehealth.
I have already referred friends to Circle for mental health treatment. It's been life-changing for me.
The convenience. I don’t have to miss or take off of work. They have available times that work around everything. The staff is always friendly and professional. I wish a lot more doctors did this.
It is very convenient and the whole process can be done around my work schedule with very little interruption to my work day.
My experience with Circle has been great. The first, and my current provider is very caring and understanding. From my first appointment until now I was able to talk to her without feeling like my words were falling on deaf ears. I've already recommended Circle to my friend and I would reommend that anyone who needs any help shouldn't hesitate and make the right choice. It's nice to be able to say that!
Circle Medical is very convenient, costs are reasonable as a self-pay patient. And my provider is absolutely awesome!
I love the convenience of the app. My provider is wonderful. I feel like I’m receiving the best care I’ve ever received.
The whole experience has been fantastic.
It's easy to book an appointment, the physicians are nice and the customer service is great.
The best, most easy experience I’ve ever had! My provider has been tremendously knowledgeable and helpful.
The best experience ever, I live in a small town where I know my providers personally and sometimes it’s hard to admit where you struggle. It was so nice to have someone that I could talk to in private and that listened and was so thorough and helpful in every way. Very easy experience and I wish I would have done it sooner! Great company!
Great, compassionate, professional provider. She honestly demonstrates that she cares about me. This is a lost art with other professionals I have seen.
My provider is attentive, thorough, and always focused what is right for me. I never feel rushed and I always feel heard. And it is easy to make an appointment
I’ve never had any issues with the app or my provider. My provider is very thorough and pleasant to talk to. The app is well designed and never buggy. Responses are fast and easy to navigate with the care staff. Circle is a life saver for me as a trans person. I’m so thankful to have found you all!
Convenience. This is the easiest and most confidential way to seek help with my mental health, and keeping it personal between myself and my provider is really important in such a small community where I live.
Convenience, professional, confident. They are really doing a good job of taking care of me.
Always easy to get a convenient appointment. Very accurate. This is the future of healthcare.
I have had a hard time with my primary care physician helping me explore ADHD treatment. I was not sure where else to turn. This was so easy and uses my insurance.
They are quick, professional, and responsive by app. They also take my insurance — what more can I ask for?
Circle Medical did an excellent job in addressing my issues quickly and with the best customer service.
Circle Medical has been a life saver! The ability to use insurance is key, as well as the availability and variety of providers. I found an AMAZING primary provider that is hands-down the best I've ever had. Plus, the convenience of video visits is fantastic!! I love Circle Medical!
The entire experience so far has been amazing, uplifting, and has given me a new lease on life. Anyone who is seeking the same medical care as I was should feel completely confident in Circle Medical, and their amazing staff.
My provider was extremely nice and understanding, and I need that after the terrible care I’ve gotten in my tiny town.
The service is great and flexible and I love my provider! She is amazing. She listened to what I have to say and all my concerns that have been dismissed in the past with other doctors. She never makes me feel silly for my concerns and lets me vent about why I was concerned about it.
It was easy to use. The provider was extremely attentive, and actually listened. Coming from a primary care office that had terrible client service, Circle Medical was really a breath of fresh air. Thank you to this team for helping me get the treatment I need.
Easy to book an appointment, my PCP is awesome! Fair pricing. I don’t have insurance and this really helps the underserved population that can’t afford big expensive medical bills.
The app was very easy to use. I didn't have any problems at all. I really like it. The provider I chose was very good and very thorough. Everything on the app work and was just easy to maneuver. Thanks for such a great experience!!
Amazing care with exceptional convenience! Telehealth should be much more mainstream. I'm very glad to have found Circle Medical.
The most painless way for a man to seek mental health without shame and embarrassment. My life has improved 200%.
I knew I needed to get diagnosed but just too anxious to go out and seek a provider. The ease of online appointment has made me not cancel or miss appointments.
Loved my visit and the fact I could make an appointment within a reasonable timeframe was amazing. Also not wasting time driving and waiting was a huge plus.
This was my first experience using something like this and the entire process was very helpful. The staff responded promptly when I had questions and I absolutely love my provider. I was very nervous about the process but she made me feel comfortable and helped me feel like I wasn’t alone. I am so happy I found Circle Medical
