Your provider will do a thorough review of your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle, and may order blood work to rule out any conditions that may be contributing to your skin conditions or symptoms. You will be able to submit photos of your skin condition to your provider during your appointment.
Once your provider has enough information to make an accurate diagnosis, they will work with you to create a customized treatment plan tailored exclusively for you, which may include behavior changes, topical applications, or prescribed medications if determined to be medically appropriate.
After you start your treatment plan, you can opt to 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. Speak to a provider today to get started!
"This service allowed me to be evaluated and seek a diagnosis that I had been meaning to for years. Having received a diagnosis that confirmed what I suspected has helped lead to improvements in my life, which I appreciate."
"I love that I don’t have to leave my house. I also feel the provider was very thorough and questioned me about my health and answered any questions. I felt very comfortable talking with her and feel like I’m in great hands. Thank you!"

† Typical costs are based on real patient data from 2022, where 75% of patients paid $35 or less as their co-pay with accepted insurance. Actual co-pay costs will depend on your individual insurance plan and deductibles. We strongly recommend that you contact your insurance company to verify your co-pay costs.
During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your skin concerns. If you have recently experienced skin changes, your provider will be able to help you diagnose the underlying causes and start you on a treatment that is right for you.
Our approach to skin care management is to provide better access to high quality providers through video appointments and in-app chat, so you can get support whenever you need it.
At Circle Medical, our board certified primary care providers have been trained in a generalized approach to medicine and are comfortable treating a wide array of skin conditions, including acne, rashes, eczema, and psoriasis, to name a few. Also your Circle Medical primary care provider can also order blood work and help to treat any underlying conditions that may also be present. However, if your Circle Medical provider feels that a dermatologist would be helpful for your skin condition, they can provide a referral to a dermatologist to help make the process seamless.
Your specific appointment frequency depends on your individual care plan. If this is a new diagnosis for you, you may have more frequent appointments with your provider to allow room for modifications to your care plan based on what is working. Patients who have already been placed on an effective skin care regimen and are focused on maintenance typically see their providers less frequently; about once every 3-6 months. We encourage you to discuss appointment frequency with your provider during your initial appointment if you have questions.
If you are experiencing severe health concerns, please dial 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
Your provider will create a custom treatment plan for you based on your needs. Depending on your treatment plan and your specific underlying causes, the amount of time it takes to see results and improvements will vary.
Please make sure you’re in a quiet place where you feel comfortable talking with your healthcare provider. Also, to assist your provider in a telehealth skin exam, please make sure you are in an area with proper lighting and good Wifi. This will allow your provider to perform a proper skin evaluation.

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.
The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.
We provide a cost estimate when you are booking your appointment. For those with insurance, your actual cost is determined after we submit the insurance claim for your appointment. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for a portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining cost to you. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app.
For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.
For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.
We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.
The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.
Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs.
If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.

We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.
It was accessible, period. I could get an appointment that was not months out like most local doctors. Gave me records that documented my history. Made it possible to receive care online/virtually.
My first interaction with my provider was a positive experience. He listened to my story and we had many things in common. I love having a provider that is also diagnosed with ADHD. This way we can treat my condition properly on a common ground approach. Thank you for being there for me!
It’s very easy to use, I can get same day appointments, my insurance covers it, providers are great and even though appointments are short they are effective at getting right to the point and listen to concerns and ideas of the patient.
Great, highly skilled, and supportive providers. Also, the app is easy to use, and I get quick responses to questions
My provider is honestly the best I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Her “bedside manner” and the amount of care and concern she has for her patients (and patients as real humans, not just numbers) is beyond compare.
Simple and easy. My PCP is absolutely amazing, super helpful, kind and understanding. It was also very affordable and convenient.
My provider is quite possibly the best most personable doctor I've ever had the pleasure of speaking with!
My provider has been BEYOND helpful, kind and compassionate. I never thought I would be so comfortable using an app for my medical needs, but I’m so glad I gave Circle Medical a chance!
Convenient, knowledgeable, professional with a personal touch.
They are absolutely amazing!!
I love my provider. He is very thorough and is easy to get ahold of.
Circle Medical made me feel comfortable and safe. The process was clear and thorough. The app is well built with very intuitive UI and thoughtful design. Every feature from submitting and validating insurance coverage to the in-app video conferencing was flawless.
I really appreciate the personalized care. I live in a rural area where healthcare is hard to come by.
I love my doctor, she is so helpful, listens to me and we both come to an agreement which is incredible. I have found in my own experience and hearing others that so many doctors don't work with their patients and my doctor does. The app is also super easy to use and every time I have had a problem I get an answer right away. Thank you!
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 amazing and very professional. Customer care is always on top of any question you have. I would highly recommend Circle Medical.
I’m convinced that these wonderful people truly care about the patients they serve. I have made such a meaningful connection with my provider, and every rep who answers my questions in the chat. First-rate customer support. Easy appointment booking. Fair price. Thank you Circle Medical.
My provider! I have felt heard, believed and taken care of by her. I am so happy to telehealth and having access to a wonderful provider through Circle Medical.
The turnaround time to get an appointment and see a provider was so quick and easy; everything is setup with the neurodivergent brain in mind from the way the app is designed to appointment reminders and calendar syncing. My provider made me feel heard and she kept our appointment focused on the task at hand (so important for adhd minds!)
My provider was wonderful, on time, and really took the time to listen to me without judgement.
The best, most easy experience I’ve ever had! My provider has been tremendously knowledgeable and helpful.
Ease of use. The technology piece makes getting help that would be very time consuming and expensive more achievable.
Has always been super helpful! The video conferencing capability is wonderful. I've actually gotten help with eczema and the provider was able to confirm and treat without a problem.
The care I’ve received from my providers has been excellent. They genuinely care about you as a person.
I work all day and I have to take time off of work to visit the doctor. This is so much more convenient.
My provider is truly a pleasure to work with. She is very informative understanding and has impeccable bedside manner.
Very friendly staff and very helpful, I have already referred my sister and my mother to Circle Medical and they are have a great experience as well
Because the my provider is eager to help and he is doing anything possible that would achieve my medical needs. I've gotten much further through 2 apts with him this last month than I had ever achieved the many prior years and much struggle.
MY PROVIDER has been great - her support and medical guidance have done for me what no other provider has done up to this point in my life. She's listened to my concerns and helped me understand what my brain is doing - and without stigma, judgment, or gaslighting. I'm getting the care I need and feel like my voice, lived experience, and opinion matter. The app is easy to use, the virtual appointments are easy to join, and the ability to meet virtually has greatly benefited me (given my crazy work schedule). Telehealth and virtual care have changed my life in the best ways.
I was able to locate a provider to help me with my needs within 24 hours even though I’ve been trying to find a one locally, I was unable to receive help for months until I stumbled on Circle Medical. They were helpful and nice.
My provider is FANTASTIC and I have already recommended Circle Medical to many people.
I felt heard. I felt educated by the provider. There’s so much stigma and such a shortage of psychiatrists. I felt alone and judged, but Circle was different.
Circle Medical helped me get diagnosed for ADHD. It absolutely changed my life for the better. I’ve already recommended it to multiple people. Access to affordable care like this is amazing and I want everyone to benefit from it.
Appointments were easy to book and so convenient. It’s taken months for me to try and find good healthcare in my rural area. This has been a way for me to find quality care that works with my schedule.
Circle Medical is easy to use and accepts a lot of insurances. I felt like my provider cared about me and we have begun to form a relationship. In regular offices I always feel rushed or unheard but somehow Circle Medical feels more personal. Requesting a refill is easy and you can check on the status.
I like the simplicity and consistency of interaction with the app; scheduling appointments and chatting without the nonsense back and forth missed phone calls and voicemails is a tremendous relief.
My provider was very kind and helpful. She listened to my needs and helped to appropriately diagnose me. I feel very confident in her as a provider.
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.
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
My experience with Circle Medical has been life changing. Their staff and my primary care physician have been beyond amazing. I would recommend Circle Medical to anyone who has a need for any services they provide. I simply cannot say enough good things on their behalf.
