Mental Health Care with Circle Medical

Our exceptionally qualified team of empathetic doctors and providers has only one goal: helping you find a way to live your healthiest life in a way that actually works for you.

Appointment

In your initial appointment, your Circle Medical provider will do a thorough review of your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle, all from the comfort and privacy of your home. Your provider may also order blood work to confirm or rule out any conditions that may be contributing to your symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, and/or ADHD.

Plan

During the second appointment, your provider will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that is tailored exclusively for you, which may include behavioral changes and prescribed medications if determined to be medically appropriate.

Your provider can also offer a therapy referral as part of your treatment plan.

Treatment

After you start your treatment plan, you will have regular video check-ins with your provider to ensure the plan is working to help you effectively manage your symptoms, and that your lifestyle continues to improve.
Because your health and safety is our highest priority, patients who wish to continue treatment with us will receive an Annual Wellness Exam. Speak to a provider today to get started!

"This app is a perfect way for people who have anxiety or anything similar. It is insanely difficult for me to get myself to the doctor with kids, as well. This has helped me get the treatment I desperately need in the comfort of my own home. I recommend it to everyone."

— Aaden L.

"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!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Anxiety / Depression Treatment

Can I get diagnosed with anxiety or depression through Circle?

Yes, our 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 treatment in the form of regular check-ins, medication prescriptions, and therapy with our partner Octave Health, depending on your needs.

Please note that booking and paying for a video appointment with one of our providers does not guarantee that you will be given a "confirmed" diagnosis. Similarly, paying for a video appointment does not guarantee that you will get prescribed a specific medication. If you are looking for a very specific medication, like a benzodiazepine, we encourage you to read through this entire FAQ before booking an appointment, to ensure that our practice is a good fit for you.

Who is a good fit for anxiety and/or depression medication management 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 behavioral health assessment and/or treatment through Circle Medical if:

- You have previously been on medication for anxiety, depression, and/or ADHD and found that it worked well for you in the past.
- You have not tried medication before but you are ready to work with a provider to find the best treatment plan for you. You understand that there may be mild side effects from medication and you are willing to work through these side effects.
- You believe you may have mild to moderate anxiety, depression, and/or ADHD and would like to receive a comprehensive assessment.

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

- You are regularly taking or seeking a prescription for benzodiazepines for other treatment (such as Klonopin or Xanax).
- You are regularly taking or seeking a prescription for 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).
- You have tried taking at least 3 different medications for anxiety/depression before and did not tolerate the side effects of treatment.

What states do you operate in?

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.

ADHD Treatment

Can I get diagnosed with ADHD/ADD through Circle?

Yes, our providers are able to provide a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis of ADHD/ADD and write the appropriate prescriptions. If you are diagnosed with ADHD/ADD by one of our providers, we are able to provide ongoing treatment in the form of regular check-ins and medication prescriptions.

Please note that booking and paying for a video appointment with one of our providers does not guarantee that you will be given a "confirmed" diagnosis. We encourage you to read through this entire FAQ before booking an appointment, to ensure that our practice is a good fit for you.

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?

Yes, we write prescriptions for controlled substances. Your provider will determine the appropriate treatment for you.

As a primary care practice, we do have a maximum dose of 60mg/day of most stimulant treatments. Most of our patients require a much smaller dosage for effective treatment. If you have a previous treatment plan of greater than 60mg/day, our practice will not be a good fit for you.

Please note: we also prescribe non-stimulant treatment plans depending on what would be best for each individual case.

Providers

Am I seeing a psychiatrist through Circle?

Our providers are primary care providers (MD's/DO's, NP's, and PA's) who have received specialized training for behavioral health treatment. They are trained by psychiatrists to ensure a high standard of care, but they are not psychiatrists themselves.

Although it is a commonly accepted practice for many primary care providers to refer their patients to psychiatrists for anxiety and/or depression diagnosis and treatment, primary care providers are actually also able to diagnose and treat mild to moderate forms of anxiety and depression themselves. If you have mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression, you can benefit from having your care managed by your primary care provider at Circle while getting access to all of the general practitioner services you would find at your normal doctor's office.

More complex cases will require psychiatrists to diagnose. We encourage you to please read through this entire FAQ to make sure our practice is a good fit for your needs before you book a medical appointment with a provider.

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 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.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

What is the total cost of anxiety and/or depression diagnosis and treatment?

Insured

$5 - $50 average copay* per appointment

*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.

Uninsured

$100 per appointment

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

Insured

$5 - $50 average copay* 1st appointment

What is the cost of therapy?

Insured

Prices for Octave's services range based on coverage, but most of their clients pay 0%-25% of visit costs when in-network.

Most times, clients can get 50%-80% of their care paid for if out-of-network benefits apply. Octave provides tools to help clients get this money easily reimbursed.

*Please note that you will have to verify your insurance plan with Octave Health independently of your insurance plan verification with Circle Medical.

Uninsured

Individual Therapy: from $205 per 60 minute session

Couples Therapy: from $250 per 60 minute session

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

For non-therapy appointments:

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.

For therapy appointments:

Octave is currently in-network with Anthem Blue Cross and Health Net in California, and Aetna and the United Healthcare UMR plan for Mount Sinai employees in New York. Please note that Octave and Circle have different insurance networks, so you will need to verify your insurance separately with Octave. Having in-network insurance with Circle Medical does not guarantee that your insurance will be in-network with Octave.

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.

Other

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 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.

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.

Circle Medical providers are able to prescribe many different medications that can help treat symptoms of Anxiety and Depression, including SSRIs. Common SSRIs include citalopram (Cipramil), dapoxetine (Priligy), escitalopram (Cipralex), fluoxetine (Prozac or Oxactin), fluvoxamine (Faverin), paroxetine (Seroxat), sertraline (Lustral), and vortioxetine (Brintellix).

However, Circle Medical providers will NOT prescribe benzodiazepines, which include alprazolam (Xanax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), clorazepate (Tranxene), diazepam (Valium), halazepam (Paxipam), lorzepam (Ativan), oxazepam (Serax), prazepam (Centrax), and quazepam (Doral).

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.

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

Don't take our word for it.

We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.

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.

Xander

Easy process, you can do it in the own comfort of your home.

Ana

Very easy to schedule and wonderful provider who listens to my concerns.

Greg

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.

Savion

Circle Medical has in all honesty provided me with the most attentive, compassionate, and informed health care I've ever received. Being able to get care that fits with my demanding and unusual work schedule is a game- changer. So many times in the past I've been unable to access care I needed, or follow-up care, because of travel issues, time constraints, and my own anxiety & depression.

Selah

The provider made appointments comfortable to talk and discuss my problems. It is easy to schedule and have access to messaging. Very affordable compared to other facilities I have looked into.

Junior

My provider is amazing. So trauma-informed and willing to listen. She was able to support me in ways so many others doctors had not over the years simply by listening to my concerns and all the ways I had tried to treat my condition on my own. This practice is excellent and I'm so grateful to have found them. I highly recommend Circle Medical.

Samara

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!

Kymani

Good service, easy to use, knowledge providers. Much more helpful than I expected from a "virtual" service.

Nicole

Quick, efficient, and helpful care. Everything is clear and app is spectacular.

Kathy

Excellent providers that truly care about their patients and listen to their concerns. Telehealth appointments are seamless.

Sebastian

Circle Medical has been absolutely amazing to me. I have been a patient at Circle Medical for about 7 months now and the experience has just been awesome. From day 1 I have been welcomed with open arms. I do video visits right in the comfort of my own home, how convenient is that? My provider is awesome, so sweet and comforting and motivating.

Ronisha

I have recommended Circle Medical to two friends and they both have used and are happy with their experience as well.

Kasen

Circle has been great for a busy, young, always-moving-around individual like myself and many other young professionals. Finding a primary care provider in a new city has always been a needlessly difficult task.

Devan

I have had nothing but a good experience with my provider. I have been able to get the help I need and have been able to regain control of my life.

Owla

Very friendly and understanding staff, staff that truly listens to you.

Ruben

The process was quick and very efficient. The provider was very knowledgeable and I could tell that she really cared.

Bernard

An extremely caring company, very responsive and went above and beyond when I was in crisis. Cannot recommend them enough!! Keep up the great work.

Walter

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.

Sierra

The efficiency of not having to go to an office and the flexible hours are great!

Tina

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. I have to say, I am already feeling better simply taking the initial steps. A big thanks to this team!

Shane

Very happy with the provider and experience. He spends his time with me and asks several questions about my health history. I never have gotten this time in an in-person office setting.

Brynn

Circle Medical has helped me when I felt helpless.

Mira

Awesome providers. They take time to actually listen to your symptoms and things you’re dealing with instead of pushing certain medications.

Maximillian

I found an amazing provider on Circle, she really cares about my wellbeing and listens to me, and we even have some laughs! I truly appreciate her and I know that she truly cares! Thank you! ❤

Jermaine

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.

Mireya

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.

Heidi

Fast assistance, ability to choose provider based on your need and time frames. Easy to use portal. My experience with the provider has been great!

Marlon

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.

MJ

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

Alden

Awesome doctors. They take time to actually listen to your symptoms and things you’re dealing with instead of pushing certain medications.

Bri

Very helpful, professional, and courteous service.

John

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.

Van

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.

Micaela

I referred a friend just yesterday. The reason why is I went through 5 other similar companies before I found this one that checks every box plus extra credit.

Rayan

The providers have been wonderful, appointments are easy and always on time. The staff is quick and very responsive in chat.

Tom

Opportunity for an assessment of my health when local medical wouldn’t see me for more than 6 months.

Arabella

Friendly staff. Compassion for ailment, quick response and open schedules. Very knowledgeable team!

Gigi

Very quick and easy to set up an appointment, and was able to get my much-needed prescription right away.

Jermaine

Simple and easy. My PCP is absolutely amazing, super helpful, kind and understanding. It was also very affordable and convenient.
