Strep. Tonsillitis. Sore Throat.
Oh My.

Strep Throat is a painful and potentially serious condition caused by a specific type of bacteria. It is generally spread by sharing food, drinks, or by contact with saliva from an infected individual.

Circle Medical providers can evaluate strep throat symptoms over video and assist in treating sore throats caused by strep or other causes. Viruses cause most throat infections. A throat infection caused by a virus or a bacteria generally will self-resolve in 7 days and does not need any antibiotics. However, a rare but severe complication can arise from having contracted Strep throat.

Meet with a doctor to determine your risks and review if symptomatic support is appropriate or if an antibiotic is needed.

Don't take our word for it.

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

The care I’ve received from my providers has been excellent. They genuinely care about you as a person.

Madalynn

Circle Medical has filled the access gap to consistent medical care and taken the frustration out of getting appointments and prescriptions. Your service is second to none.

Elaina

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

Aaden

I love the convenience of the app. My provider is wonderful. I feel like I’m receiving the best care I’ve ever received.

Coleman

Great service and caring doctors.

Eric

They respond to your chat so fast. Excellent customer service. Above and beyond.

Denzel

Provider was wonderful, the medicine she prescribed worked overnight. I was amazed at how fast the healing started.

Paxton

Easy and convenient, providers have great personalities. First time I actually felt listened to and heard.

Devin

Absolutely amazing to work with. The staff is so knowledgeable and kind. The app is user friendly and very responsive.

Jimena

My provider is great and I feel like she really cares about my well-being as a person. She listens to any concerns I have and takes me seriously.

Priscilla

Helpful, kind, understanding staff and medical professionals who take time to hear you! Thank you all. It’s been a game changer for me!

Felix

Video appointments save a ton of time. All the providers have been very friendly, prompt and informative.

Jamir

I chose Circle due to the convenience of seeing a provider via a virtual meeting. I work a lot of hours that sometimes unpredictable, so virtual visits definitely come in handy.

Aydan

The most painless way for a man to seek mental health without shame and embarrassment. My life has improved 200%.

Niles

I can get appointments anytime I need them from the comfort of my home and my prescriptions are always filled really quick.

Valentina

My provider listened and didn't judge. She was very easy to talk and I felt heard.

Fran

I have recommended you to several people. I really like Circle Medical because I don't feel judged and feel that I am actually cared about.

Shalane

My provider is great, easy to talk to, and addressed my concerns, tried a different approach to medication and it’s the first time ever it’s really worked for me.

Kris

I’ve come to my provider with 3 different issues and so far she’s been very receptive to all 3. The assistants are very fast to respond by chat in the app to any medication questions, billing questions and scheduling questions I’ve had. I adore not having to drag my kids to the babysitters to go to my PCP for every little issue. I’ve been able to get my needs met quickly and efficiently with Circle Medical and to be honest, I was super skeptical when I started. I thought there was no way it would be easy, but I honestly has been.

Allie

Circle Medical is very convenient, costs are reasonable as a self-pay patient. And my provider is absolutely awesome!

Julian

I found an amazing provider who has helped me more in the last few months than a team of specialists over the course of nearly a decade of care.

Mala

I moved to a new area and wasn't sure how to proceed with primary care. I reached out to Circle Medical just because I needed someone to assist with my prescriptions. But now that I am seeing them, I will rely on them for my PCP needs going forward. Thank you.

Michelle

Exceptional care from Day 1 all the way through current treatment. Couldn’t ask for a better service.

Rory

Ease of access to medical professionals. Great communication and response time.

Timothy

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.

Jess

Awesome service, many appointment times available, caring and thorough medical care perfect for people with busy schedules.

Ireland

Ease of care, excellent provider who listened to my concerns, video apts from home on the weekend which makes it so much easier to have an appointment.

Annalise

The provider was pleasant to work with and made me feel comfortable to talk about my symptoms. The whole process was very easy and stress free.

Daniella

The providers are very empathetic and I always feel comfortable discussing my issues.

Dira

I found the best provider I've ever had. She cares, she listens, and she's knowledgeable. I can schedule easily and don't need to commute to an office for an appointment.

Felicia

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.

Kareem

It was extremely easy to sign-up and utilize the app. From the first time I ever heard of the app, I was in an appt within several hours and paired with an AMAZING provider that is very sensitive to my needs and concerns.

Cailyn

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

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.

Alex

My provider is the best! And Circle Medical is very convenient. I was neglecting my health before I knew about Circle because I never felt like going to the doctors, but Circle has changed my life!

Sonny

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

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.

Orlando

I've already recommended it to someone else frustrated by their doctor not taking their ADHD symptoms seriously, which is so often the case.

Emerson

The app is easy to navigate and book appointments. Also being able to reschedule is great for someone like myself who works on call and has a difficult time keeping appointments.

Roger

My experience with Circle Medical has been fantastic! I’ve had multiple referrals that just lead me back to the beginning, and with Circle I was able to circumvent those, experiencing speedy and professional treatmet. I owe my quality of life to Circle.

Keira

Frequently Asked

Appointments

What can I expect during my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your symptoms and may perscribe medications or treatments as needed, which will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice the same day. If necessary, the provider may refer you out to a local lab for testing, or to a pulmonary specialist.

Can my Strep Throat, Tonsillitis, or sore throat be assessed and treated via a video appointment from home?

Yes. Circle Medical providers are board certified primary care providers who specialize in diagnosing and treating Strep Throat, Tonsillitis, and other medical conditions from the comfort of your own home.

Do I need to go to urgent care to treat my Strep Throat symptoms?

At Circle Medical, all of your visits can be performed from the comfort of your own home. No driving to an in person clinic, experiencing long wait times, risking exposure from other sick patients, and not knowing the provider that is going to treat you. If you are already a Circle Medical patient, you can be seen by your current Circle Medical provider for Strep Throat diagnosis and treatments.

If your provider determines that you are suffering from a severe case of Strep Throat and require acute treatment, they may recommend you visit an Urgent Care center.

How soon will I receive my prescriptions?

Your provider will send your prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy the same day as your visit.

Can Circle Medical providers provide treatment for other medical problems besides Strep Throat and Tonsillitis?

Yes. At Circle Medical, all of our healthcare providers are board-certified primary care providers who can treat a wide array of health conditions.

Is my provider able to refer me to a specialist if it is needed?

Yes. Your provider can assist you in the treatment of your medical conditions as well as order imaging or referrals as needed.

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

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.

How long are the appointments?

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

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

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.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

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.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

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.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

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.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

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.
