Getting You the Help You Need, NOW!

Going to a psychiatrist can be scary, but it really doesn’t have to be! I’m Dr. Adam Pendleton, a dual-boarded psychiatrist, and I provide mental healthcare via telemedicine. Let’s work together to find out why you might be struggling and determine a treatment plan to start your mental health journey in Salt Lake City!

Pendleton Medical Group



If you have tried various medications through your primary care physician, exhausted your time in therapy without much progress, or your mental health condition is currently undiagnosed, you simply have not had Dr. Adam Pendleton in your corner.

Dr. Pendleton is not intimidated by what hasn’t worked for you.

Hi, I’m Adam!

Hi! I’m Dr. Adam Pendleton, a licensed MD physician. I’m excited to get to know you, meeting you in the comfort and privacy of your home through video calls. You and I can explore the things that make life difficult. I am here to formulate a plan that will get you feeling better as quickly as possible. I have a lot of experience with medication management. Sometimes, your brain just can’t get its act together to make the things you need – low on serotonin? I promise, store-bought is ok! Don’t worry, whatever the issue may be, we’ll find a solution together.

Dr. Pendleton is currently accepting new patients!

If you have ever had to deal with an insurance company before, you know what a headache it can be. Let’s be honest, IT. JUST. SUCKS!

It’s no better for doctors dealing with insurance companies. By accepting insurance, doctors are forced to do an extensive amount of paperwork, be told HOW to practice, HOW to prescribe medications, and to jump through hoops of failed medication trials and prior authorizations that, frankly, delay the care you need. At the end of the day, we still have to fight for payment by the insurance companies (which they love to deny — what a surprise!). Many small private practices go out of business because of this red tape.

Not accepting insurance allows me to spend my time with YOU, and to make the right treatment plan quickly so you can feel better, faster.

An initial visit with a psychiatrist is more than just a couple questions – it’s an in-depth look at your mental health history, treatment history, symptoms, family history, and much more. This takes time, but it allows you to get a diagnosis and treatment plan that you can be confident in! Many people will spend much more than $500 going to counselors, therapists, family doctors, mid-level providers, psychologists, life coaches, and even psychics (I wish I were kidding…) before finally getting the help they need from a trained psychiatrist. Plus, when you become my patient, you have the benefit of knowing you can reach me directly with questions or concerns! I can provide documentation (known as a “superbill”) that you can submit to your insurance plan – some will reimburse part or all of the cost of your care, some will not – it all depends on your individual plan. Before we schedule a formal intake, I may ask some questions about what you’re looking for. I might not be the right fit for some people – and in those cases, I can help direct you to another kind of provider, like your family doctor, to try some basic interventions first before spending the money to see me!
