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.
I rated you a 10 because firstly my experience was excellent, the provider was very professional and easy to talk to, and the medication she recommended seems to be working great!
My provider is really knowledgeable about her job and is very compassionate. My interactions with the other staff has been great too!
The providers have been exceptionally responsive and giving me great advice. I can get an appointment often within hours if I need something urgently.
Convenient, knowledgeable doctors, and the screen makes me more comfortable asking questions and sharing more personal information.
Very convenient. I didn’t have to wait on hold to make an appointment. Was able to meet in the comfort of my own home. Provider was very professional. Straight to the questions, but felt personal and tailored to my pace.
It's easy to get an appointment. It's nice to be able to not have to sit in an office waiting to be seen. My provider makes me feel like she actually remembers me and I'm not just another folder slapped on her desk. It's very nice. She also discusses treatment with me instead of just throwing pills at me and saying do this or do that. I feel involved and in charge of my own health.
Everyone has been absolutely wonderful to work with. Genuine, resolves my concerns and intelligent. Thank you!
Circle Medical has finally given me access to the kind of care that not only works best for me, but also cares about me.
Circle Medicine gave me access to care that if I had not been able to access through telemedicine I most likely would not have gotten it. Not to mention the ease of use, which is an absolute 10. Technology at its finest.
My provider really listens and understands my issues.
Absolute top of the line providers. Most caring, competent, empathetic, kind doctor I've ever had. She is so dedicated to her patients.
Circle Medical has been such a great platform to see a care provider! I have had such a great experience with the ease of using the platform as well as the providers. Thank you!
Excellent providers on staff. The patient coordinator team is fantastic as well. I def recommend. I am so happy with Circle Medical provider's services.
Everything works so smoothly! Right from home or work. You don’t have to worry about being late because of traffic.
This service is life-changing, it made getting the medication that I need so much easier and has over all improved my quality of life without hassle.
Just amazing! My provider is down to earth, very knowledgeable, and respectful of my own experience as a healthcare provider. Circle Medical’s ease of access to the service, and responsiveness are models in the industry.
I have been extremely happy with the entire staff, alwasy so willing to help me in any way from appointments to assistance with insurance. I have already recommended Circle Medical to my sister, who struggles with many of the same issues that I do.
My provider was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and listened to me, she made me feel like me & what I'm going through matters. Circle Medical has excellent providers. Plus the customer service/patient care reps are great. I chatted with 2 and they were able to assist me in a timely fashion. I already booked my next appointment. I'm so happy that I chose Circle Medical.
Circle Medical has made getting care for my mental health from a professional so convenient and stress free. As a busy mom and ER RN, I love anything I can do from home. My provider has been so great and helpful!
It was a very personal and safe experience that made me feel absolutely comfortable talking about my personal problems and helping me find a solution.
My provider is absolutely amazing. Very compassionate, listens, provides feedback, and takes her time. I feel very comfortable and confident with my care.
Friendly staff. Compassion for ailment, quick response and open schedules. Very knowledgeable team!
Very compassionate and professional service with great follow-up.
The process was easy and quick. I waited months for an appointment with an office and missed it. With Circle Medical I was seen and treated in a few days. Amazing.
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!!
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.
Because they get right to the main issues. Most doctors I have seen go through a trial and error diagnosis that goes on for a year or more.
My provider is so genuine and insightful and I truly get value from our sessions! It's extremely easy to set up, navigate and just hassle-free. No wait times, no sitting on hold with an office, no fighting traffic, and no hidden costs. I also like the responsiveness from the chat. Someone always responds and assists me with my questions like how to change pharmacies or reschedule my appointment.
They have been beyond helpful. All of the staff have been kind and considerate and always get back to me in a timely manner. They have helped so much. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Easy access, no run around. Blown off by at least 3 different doctors before finding Circle and my diagnosis/treatment has immensely improved my life.
Circle Medical is a one stop shop for all my medical needs. No more waiting in a doctor's office for me!!
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.
I’ve been through a few online doctors and psychiatrists and Circle has provided the most professional providers I’ve encountered. They truly care about their patients. The app is also easily navigated and has multiple options of care!
It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.
It's just been an easy process and this is the first time where I feel like my provider really wants to get to know me as a person and not just another appointment.
It was amazingly fast to get an appointment compared to the wait times in my area for a mental health professional. The provider I am seeing is very personable and I feel like she understands me and always gives me opportunities for questions. I have never felt judged. I have used the chat support and received a response much faster than most doctors offices.
It’s nice to have flexibility. The provider was very good and I felt like I was getting excellent care and didn’t need to stress out about taking time off work to get it.
The app is easy to use, appointment scheduling is convenient, there are lots of providers to choose from, and the providers are supportive, explain things well, and are non-judgemental.
My provider is great, very attentive and a great listener. This app makes my life so much easier and convenient when it comes to keeping up with my health.
My provider has been amazing, its quick, easy and you're not waiting months for appointments!
