At-home Sleep Study and Screening

Participating in an at-home sleep study has never been easier. The steps are as follows:
  • You will be sent a small device

  • Pair the device with a free app on your phone, and follow the instructions to tape it to the tip of your index finger for one night before going to sleep.

  • Sleep (In your own bed!) and perform a two-night sleep study

  • The data will be sent automatically to your provider, and your results will be analyzed by a board-certified sleep specialist who will determine if you are at risk for, or are experiencing Sleep Apnea, and will create an individualized treatment plan based on those results and your medical history

Get Treatment from a Specialist

How we determine what treatment is right for you

Based on the results of your sleep study, the severity of your Sleep Apnea, and other relevant health factors, your provider will recommend one or or a combination of the following treatment options and paths:

1. Behavior Modification

Many mild cases of Sleep Apnea can be treated by losing weight, changes in frequency and intensity in exercise, breath work, reducing alcohol consumption, stopping smoking, and more.

2. CPAP Machine or Equivalent

If a patient’s Sleep Apnea is significant enough that behavior changes alone are not effective, the typical treatment for Sleep Apnea is the use of a CPAP machine or similar device to help regulate a patient’s breathing while they sleep. 

Available only with a prescription, CPAP machines have continued to evolve along with other medical technology, and have become easier than ever to use. Your provider will be able to recommend a CPAP device that is most compatible with your lifestyle, and will be covered by most insurance plans. 

3. Referral for Oral Surgery

In very rare or extreme cases, or for patients who are unable or would prefer not to use a CPAP device or other device, Circle Medical providers can make an appropriate diagnosis and refer the patient out to a specialist for upper respiratory or airway surgeries.

Who gets Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is very common, and affects nearly 1 billion people across the world each year. In the US, 25-30% of men, and 9-17% of women are estimated to have obstructive Sleep Apnea. While men are more likely to be affected than women, it can be much more common during and after pregnancy, and as we age. Other significant factors that contribute to Sleep Apnea include:

  • Family history

  • Obesity

  • Alcohol use

  • Smoking

What are the symptoms of Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when your airways become blocked during sleep. Typical symptoms include being tired during the day (despite adequate hours of rest), trouble staying asleep at night, headaches or dry mouth in the morning, and excessive or loud snoring that includes moments of gasping for air (these are usually observed by sleeping partners).  

It is important to note that not all of these symptoms may present in a person who is experiencing Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea often affects people who are not obese, for example. Additionally, up to 20% of patients who have Sleep Apnea do NOT snore. (Snoring in and of itself is not always associated with Sleep Apnea.) 

Why is it important to diagnose and treat?

Left undiagnosed or untreated, Sleep Apnea can cause serious health complications for your or your loved one. Not only does it disrupt the quality of sleep for you or your sleep partner, untreated it could lead to other significant issues, including:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

  • Cardiomyopathy (enlargement of the muscle tissue of the heart)

  • Atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) 

  • Type-II diabetes

  • Heart disease

  • Heart failure 

  • Stroke

I found the medical expertise to be fantastic! I've been treated by three different providers, all of whom were very caring. They take their time, you never feel rushed. They all have made me feel as I I was their only patient to care for. Truly a great organization of medical professionals. Thank you!

Karlie

My provider is attentive and listens to me needs. She addresses any issues I have. She is never late to our meetings.

Remi

Circle Medical has been very easy to use. I use Circle Medical for my ADHD treatment and it has been amazing. My provider is fantastic, the hours are flexible, and the reminders help keep me on track. I was sick earlier in the year and needed immediate care, which I was able to schedule in minutes. I used to use MDlive for my primary/urgent care, but I’ve switched entirely to Circle.

Mario

My provider is very attentive and always asks me the right questions that fit my issues. I love the communication, the whole team has even if its not my provider, someone is always there to help me when I have questions! 10/10!

Maddie

Tthey have been extremely helpful, and my provider has been extremely kind and helping. She made me feel comfortable and better immediately during our first visit.

Sonny

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.

Madeleine

Finding a good and reliable remote healthcare provider to diagnose and treat ADHD is extremely difficult. Circle Medical has made this process easy for me and I am thankful I chose Circle Medical.

Zander

Providers make me feel seen, heard, and validated in my adversities and experience. The accessibility is huge and a life saver. It’s so hard to have the courage to seek help for something you believe you struggle with but have been dismissed and shot down before when you have tried to seek out help in the past. Having the option to be assessed virtually saved my life and has completely changed me for the better.

Autumn

Access and personal connection. The three providers I interacted with seem to have gone out of their way to make things easy for me. It was a seamless experience from assessment/consultation, labs, and medications; it all just worked. As an NP I now know I want to work for an organization like Circle.

Mike

Very professional service, extremely convenient and has greatly improved my life. Saves me very intimidating visits to regular doctors that don’t take into consideration modern day issues or considerations. I feel taken care of but also understood.

Precious

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

Sebastian

It's been a great platform so far. The response time and availability of the team have been the best.

TJ

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.

Lillianna

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

Bri

I’ve had an amazing experience. I liked how I was able to read up on the providers to find the right fit for me. The one I chose is absolutely the right fit and has worked with me to find the correct dosage of medication.

Sandoval

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!

Allisson

Easy to schedule appointments, the chat is super responsive, and everyone I’ve talked to has been friendly and helpful.

Devin

It is so difficult to access mental health care services right now especially for ADHD, I have received immediate and responsive care that has already improved my quality of life, thank you.

Ash

For a long time it was hard to find a provider I trusted, and the ones around here are short and rude. So I stopped going to get medical care unless it was an emergency. But this has brought faith back into me that medical field is not just all about money and looking to get people in and out as quick as possible, and now not having to sit in waiting rooms that possibly could spread illness and can do it online is absolutely amazing. Love this service.

Melvin

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 others I have looked into.

Nicole

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.

Macy

The Circle Medical team is responsive, thorough, kind, helpful and respectful, and listens to your needs.

Frankie

Amazing practice. Every staff member has been nice, helpful, responsive... there are not enough adjectives to describe how great my experience has been with Circle Medical.

Melinda

My provider is so sweet and helpful and listens, and any time I have an issue I can send a message and within the day someone with respond with help. Very happy with this app.

Giancarlo

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.

Kael

Circle Medical made accessing care easy. Sometimes it is hard to reach out for help, and Circle Medical made it easy for me to find a remote provider. From the beginning I felt respected, listened to, and cared for.

Cossna

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.

Steven

As someone who has ADHD, simply setting up an account on the site was so easy. You can tell that this was made with neurodivergent people in mind. Things are just SIMPLE.

Ryan

Very easy platform to use, providers are knowledgable, easy to make appointments that fit in my busy schedule.

Madelyn

Circle Medical is a much more convenient way to see a doctor. No taking days off work, sitting around in waiting rooms or fighting traffic to make the appointment.

Lilianna

Ease of use. The technology piece makes getting help that would be very time consuming and expensive more achievable.

Matthew

Wonderful care providers, lots of appointments available at convenient times, great technology to make it all work seamlessly.

Christian

My primary care providers were a half hour away so I’d have to take 2 hours off work just to visit then. Being able to see a provider virtually on Circle Medical saves me a lot of time

Frequently Asked Questions

Insomnia care

If I think I have Sleep Apnea, can I sign up for a Sleep Study on my own?

Current laws in the United States require a doctor’s prescription in order for a patient to participate in a sleep study.

If I know I have Sleep Apnea, can I just purchase a CPAP device?

Current laws in the United States require a doctor’s prescription in order to obtain a CPAP device.

How do I return the device after my Sleep Study is completed?

You will be sent a pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope along with the device. Once you have completed your at-home sleep study, simply place the device in the provided envelope and put it in the mail. That's it!

Is the device uncomfortable or hard to use?

Not at all. It is a small device that you can easily attach painlessly. The companion smartphone app includes detailed, easy to follow instructions for use, and will send the recorded data back to Circle automatically.

Do I have to pick up, or drop off, my device at a Circle Medical location?

No, the device will be sent to you, and will arrive in 5-7 business days following your provider’s recommendation for a Sleep Study. The device will automatically send recorded data back to Circle for evaluation. You will be sent a pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope along with the device. Once you have completed your at-home sleep study, simply place the device in the provided envelope and put it in the mail. That's it!  

Who reviews my sleep study results?

Your sleep results will be reviewed by a board-certified sleep specialist, who will then work closely with your Circle Medical provider to create your personalized treatment plan.

What are the benefits of an at home sleep study vs a regular sleep study at a clinic?

Most people find it far more comfortable to sleep in the comfort of their own bed in their own home, where your sleep patterns will much more closely match your typical sleep cycle than they would when you sleep in a clinic that is new to you. The device you will receive will also allow you to perform multiple studies, and all at a small fraction of the typical cost of an in-clinic sleep study.

General

Where are Circle Medical’s clinics located? Where can I get care?

Circle Medical has in-person clinics in California and is expanding its in-person presence across the US, but you can get high quality care via telemedicine video appointments in 25 states across the US.

To see what states are currently available, please start booking an appointment and the available states will show as options for you to select.

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.

What is the total cost of treatment?

Circle Medical is a primary care practice, which means that the only fee due to us is the cost of the appointment itself. We accept insurance, so your plan may pay some or all of the appointment fee. Circle does not charge any ongoing membership fees to use our platform.

If you are prescribed medications, you will pay for them when you pick them up at a pharmacy.

Insured

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.

Our insured patients pay an average of $5-$50 per appointment.

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.

Uninsured

We also offer a self-pay option at a flat rate of $100 per appointment.
