Positive change starts with just one appointment.

Tens of millions of Americans struggle with their mental health. Anxiety, Depression and ADHD are some of the most common mental health conditions in the US. Nearly 2 out of 3 sufferers don't seek treatment, fearing the cost, the complexity of finding a specialist, or due to the stigmatization of these issues.

The good news is that these conditions can be effectively diagnosed, managed and treated by Circle Medical primary care providers in a compassionate environment from the comfort of your own home.

Your journey with your provider will start with getting a compassionate, accurate diagnosis, which can be done in as little as 1-2 sessions, all from the privacy of your own home.

Once your provider has worked with you to come to an accurate diagnosis, you will discuss treatment options and develop a personalized treatment plan that will enable you to effectively manage your symptoms.

We hope to speak with you soon and help you on your journey in health.

No Psychiatrist Necessary.

Did you know? All of the board-certified primary care providers at Circle Medical are able to diagnose and treat common mental health conditions, including Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD, and usually for a significantly lower cost than seeing a mental health specialist such as a psychiatrist.

A psychiatrist is not required in order for you to receive an accurate diagnosis, or to receive treatment if it is determined to be medically appropriate.

In the event your provider determines that you may have a condition that is more appropriately diagnosed and managed by a psychiatrist, your provider will provide psychiatry resources. Additionally, Circle Medical is able to offer therapy referrals in all the locations where we offer care.

Don't take our word for it.

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

This service allowed me to be evaluated and seek a diagnosis that I had been meaning to for years, but wasn't able to manage as it was cost prohibitive. Having received a diagnosis that confirmed what I suspected has helped lead to improvements in my life, which I appreciate.

Caitlyn

It’s so easy to use and I’m able to schedule same day virtual appointments. The provider I see is very thorough, extremely knowledgeable and always kind and considerate. I’ve been able to communicate easily through the chat and always get a response within a few hours. The best part is my insurance is accepted so there is very little out of pocket for me. 10/10 would definitely recommend to anyone!

Aracely

The convenience is amazing. I can always find an appointment with the same person at a time that works best for my schedule. Also, I love the ability to text questions whenever I want. I get answers within the same day. Sometimes in an hour. It feels like a concierge service. I can call whenever I want. Make an appointment when I want, and get quick answers to all of my questions.

Seamus

Prior to Circle Medical, I struggled for months as I visited doctor after doctor for an ADD diagnosis, just to be ignored and misdiagnosed because none of them had researched ADD in women. Then, I found Circle, and was diagnosed and treated within days. The treatment worked, and my life has improved drastically.

April

I’ve worked with other medical providers and hands down this is the best outlet for someone who needs real help in all facets of their life.

Tyrone

The whole process is so simple to use! This includes the new patient registration to the visits. The provider is absolutely a gem! The entire team is amazing. I recommend this service to everyone.

It’s just easy for a working mom in between calls when I have about 20 mins or so to actually care for myself and my health right from home.

Hana

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.

Abdiel

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.

Circle has been great! They are cost-effective, efficient and get me the care I need with a busy schedule!

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 and asking me question and letting me answer.

Dominique

Quick and easy especially if you're super busy with life and work to make a appointment to go some where and see a provider... this is a life changer for me.

Annalise

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.

Camryn

I receive a higher level of interaction and care from my provider at Circle than I did from the PCP I had for many years at another clinic. I feel like I have an advocate in my health journey.

Frequently Asked

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

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?

After you fill out the initial questionnaires sent to you, it typically takes one appointment for a diagnosis.
