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!

† 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.

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.
