We are trusted by over 50,000 patients every month. Here's what they have to say.
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.
Modern day convenience. Great experience.
Always professional, always wise, always goes above and beyond!
Sincere and caring staff! Excellent communication.
Appointment availability. I cannot get an in-person appointment in my city for 6 weeks. This app allowed me to connect with a medical professional the next day. (Same-day was available as well.) And professionalism. I felt that in my two appointments I was treated with respect, not judged, and I was able to express my issues and thoughts to someone who was actually listening.
Well I saw the reviews. Also importantly it was a virtual appointment. Working for a school district where there is a shortage of substitutes is makes it difficult at times to take off and go to a doctor in person. This was so much more convenient for me.
This service is incredibly convenient and the appointment availability is wonderful. If I have an issue a PCC responds to my messages very quickly and the providers (if needed) do as well. I cannot think of a single thing that would make this a better experience for me!
Always easy to get a convenient appointment. Very accurate. This is the future of healthcare.
Exceptional Experience! From easy and convenient scheduling to a great doctor experience!
The service is so convenient, my provider is incredibly nice, and the technology is always reliable.
Great service and caring doctors.
Scheduling was easy. Appointments started on time. I needed help with some preauthorization stuff for a prescription and the response time was quick and efficient via chat.
It was very easy to sign up. The provider I chatted with was very thorough.
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.
Fantastic doctors, NPs, communication. Ease of use, virtual appointments, on time for every appointment. They are quick and thorough.
Accessibe, efficient, and I really like my provider's approach to my concerns and partnership in treatment planning. I feel validated, heard, and respected. Love how streamlined the app makes everything including the chat feature being open 24/7. Feels like I have open/quick access and flexibility in getting my needs met.
I have been using Circle for half a year and never had an issue. Questions were answered within the time given. My provider has been there for me 1000%. Never late!! Pleasant and caring always asked how she can HELP!! I have only good things to say. You're wasting your own time, employer's time, gas and cash going to a doctor's office.
My interaction was one with care, and I was asked more questions into my “issues or problems.” It didn’t feel like I was talking to a typical doctor, but rather someone who was genuinely concerned with my problem.
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 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.
My provider made it easy to talk about my medical past, was understanding and listened to what was going on.
My provider is the kindest person and she’s very patient and caring. She’s very helpful. The whole setup of Circle Medical is easy and efficient!
I absolutely love my provider. She spends quality time listening to me. It’s rare these days that a doctor is willing to SEE you, and I don’t mean see you as in pop in for an appointment and push you out the door. She is an active listener and sees that I want to change my life. She’s helping me do that!
The service and care my provider has provided for me since being a patient has been second to none! It's changed my life to be honest. Highly recommend Circle Medical!
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.
Very compassionate and professional service with great follow-up.
Ease of scheduling, customer service, my provider has been attentive and efficient, i can't say enough good things! Circle has literally changed my life.
Very professional and non-judgmental. System is very easy to use.
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. For me, this is helpful due to my erratic schedule working in various rural Emergency Departments...I can take my appointment with me.
Circle Medical handles everything in a professional and courteous manner.
Circle Medical has been extremely patient-oriented and has helped me feel like I’m in good hands with my mental health, receiving my medications on time with no issues.
I always feel heard and comfortable during my appointments.
Very helpful, professional, and courteous service.
Quick, kind and professional in communicating with me.
Been an overall positive experience where I feel heard and respected by doctors and staff.
My provider has been very helpful in helping me find the right treatment. She is patient and through. The platform is user-friendly and easy to use.
Circle is the only part of the healthcare value chain that doesn't waste my time and money.
As far as I’m concerned, this is the future of healthcare. I’ve transitioned all of my primary care to Circle Medical as well as my ADHD management. I’m amazed at the weekend and off-hour options, which are a lifesaver for a busy professional like myself. I recommend this service to anyone who is looking to get a PCP or evaluated for ADHD. Your customer service is top-notch and I’ve never had an issue with insurance or my prescriptions. I’m so glad I found your company!
I love how easy the app is to use and how Circle Medical makes healthcare accessible to everyone.
The Circle Medical team works together to serve patient requests and needs promptly, courteously, and efficiently. I feel very fortunate to be a patient and count on support for my medical needs.
Seeing a provider over the Circle Medical App is a fast, convenient, and comprehensive way to get medical care.

Weight Loss and Weight Management Treatment
The safety and well-being of our patients is our number one priority.
Depending on your weight loss goals and the discussion with your provider, some weight loss and weight management treatments may include behavior modification, such as changes to diet and exercise routines, or prescription medication.
Your provider will work with you to determine if a medication is clinically appropriate as a part of your overall treatment plan.
We do not prescribe controlled substance medications as part of weight loss treatment plans.
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.
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 are all trained in Weight Loss and Weight Management. They 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.
Initial intake appointments are 30 mins. Follow-up appointments are typically 20 minutes each.
Billing and Insurance
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.
If your plan is not in-network, cash pay is accepted for all services.
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.
After you are diagnosed, if you are prescribed medications, we will coordinate sending these prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy.
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.
