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@example.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.
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.
Very easy platform to use, providers are knowledgable, easy to make appointments that fit in my busy schedule.
I love the app. Excellent. You could book on an appt early or on weekends. The provider I work with is knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate and very supportive and thorough!!!
Accessible & responsive. Person-centered care. Solution-driven providers who listen and take individual needs into account. Superb follow-through. Genuine providers/staff who want to help. Circle Medical has literally changed my life. My provider listens and offers solutions that have never been presented to me before. Because of that I have been able to achieve so much.
I’ve received better medical care from my provider than I ever have in-person and, all at the ease of doing so online, in my home.
Convenient, effective, and efficient heath care provider. It’s the modern way to get heath care.
My new provider is very nice and very helpful. The process was super simple and I’m able to schedule appointments easily
Easy, fast booking, respectful treatment, great documentation and communication. My provider listens to me, takes my input into account and treats me like an equal, not like an annoyance. Can't recommend enough, A+++++
Circle Medical ADHD treatment has changed my life for the better in so many ways. I love the ease of not having to go to a Doctors office. I travel for work and my travels are sporadic so being able to take a video/zoom appointment wherever I am at is paramount. I never need to worry about when my appointment is as long as I have cell service. It's just incredible. Plus I ABSOLUTELY love my provider. He is just awesome. I could go on and on about him.
I work all day and I have to take time off of work to visit the doctor. This is so much more convenient.
Informed, polite, and consistent staff, operating under an obviously organized system to provide quality care.
Circle Medical is a game changer for me and my health care. Phenomenal service.
No matter where I live or move to with my job, I can see my provider on Circle. I’ve been using Circle for over a year and absolutely love them.
The attention my provider has for me as a patient. Not just the generic questions but rephrasing them in to something that is specific to me and I can understand.
Scheduling was easy. Appointments started on time. I needed help with some preauthorization stuff for a prescription and the response time was quick and efficient via chat.
The Circle Medical team works together to serve patient requests and needs promptly, courteously, and efficiently. I feel very fortunate to be a patient and count on support for my medical needs.
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.
Circle Medical has been great! They are cost-effective, efficient and get me the care I need with a busy schedule!
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.
I love that I don’t have to leave my house to have a checkup. I also feel the provider was very thorough and questioned me about my health and answered any questions I had. Explained everything very well to me that I understood. I felt very comfortable talking with her and feel like I’m in great hands. Thank you!
Your app is the best I’ve used, and I design apps for a living. I absolutely love my provider. She’s so kind and caring and very easy to talk to.
Circle Medical has been great. I work in the digital health space and there are so many companies with poorly designed telehealth platforms that are staffed by unreliable providers. Circle's platform is so easy to use, the providers are kind and reliable, the support is responsive.
I already recommend Circle Medical to all of my friends who stress out about mental health things. Anyone who asks me, I tell them about it.
It is quick and convenient, especially compared to traditional healthcare.
The provider I spoke to was much more helpful than I expected. Instead of telling me what I thought I wanted to hear, she told me what I NEEDED to hear.
Ease of use, super convenient. Medical professional took time interviewing me and addressed my needs and concerns,
Because the doctors are very professional and also they have compassion unlike others in the past
My provider is FANTASTIC and I have already recommended Circle Medical to many people.
The best, most easy experience I’ve ever had! My physician has been tremendously knowledgeable and helpful.
I love having a primary care provider to work with me on getting the correct medication needed to function. I love the convenience of the telehealth appointments as well.
I love speaking with my provider, she always listens to me and takes the time to be interested in me as a person!!
The providers have been wonderful appointments are easy and always on time. The staff is quick and very responsive in chat.
I’ve come to my provider with 3 different issues and so far she’s been very receptive to all 3. The assistants are very fast to respond by chat in the app to any medication questions, billing questions and scheduling questions I’ve had. I adore not having to drag my kids to the babysitters to go to my PCP for every little issue. I’ve been able to get my needs met quickly and efficiently with Circle Medical and to be honest, I was super skeptical when I started. I thought there was no way it would be easy, but I honestly has been.
I really appreciate the personalized care. I live in a rural area where healthcare is hard to come by.
My provider is great and 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.
Circle Medical is a one stop shop for all my medical needs. No more waiting in a doctor's office for me!!
The app is easy to navigate and book appointments. Also being able to reschedule is great for someone like myself who works on call and has a difficult time keeping appointments.
Honestly my provider has been vastly more concerned about my needs than any doctor I've been too before, and I don't even have to leave my house. This has been an absolutely amazing medical experience.
My provider is very attentive, and very clear about treatment and recommendations. Everybody is so helpful. When you send messages they respond quickly.
Circle Medical has helped me when I felt helpless.
Always professional, always wise, always goes above and beyond!
