A doctor who has expertise in preventing, managing, and reversing diabetes to help you get off medications, lower your blood sugar, lose weight, and feel better.

My team of physicians and I are accepting a limited number of patients. You’ll get the dedicated personal attention of a doctor that you choose. Securely text your doctor for a quick answer. Appointments over phone and video chat.  True preventative care tailored to your medical needs.

Please learn more and get started today. We’d love to have you as a patient.

Named by Prevention Magazine as “America’s Diabetes-Defeating Doctor”

How It Works

RESERVE YOUR SPOT

Provide your info and put your credit card on file. When we’re ready to take you on as a patient, we’ll let you know. Your credit card won’t be charged until after you’ve had your first online appointment with us.

HAVE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

We’ll spend about an hour talking via two-way video chat. We’ll carefully review all of your medical history, family history, and more. You’ll share and discuss all of your medical questions and concerns. You’ll go into detail about your diet, exercise, sleep, work, and the other important parts of your life. Our aim will be to really get to know you, like a doctor friend. Together we’ll develop a plan to monitor and manage your health, including, if appropriate, using connected devices (weight scales, blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar) and apps (MyFitnessPal, Fitbit, Runkeeper, Strava, and more).

HAVE A DOCTOR “AT HAND”

Text them anytime with any medical question or concern. Schedule a phone call or video chat.  They’ll instantly receive the health data that you share with them, including weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, diet, exercise, and other output from connected devices and apps that you may use.  If you have a medical issue, they will be there to talk with you, assess the situation, listen to your concerns, and oversee and monitor your care.  If needed, they will help you find the right specialist in your area, brief that specialist on your situation, set you up with an appointment, and review the results with you.

Our Patients Love Us

Finding a true connection with a physician is the path to wellness. I have been fortunate to have found such with Dr. Spencer Nadolsky. After not seeing a physician for more years than I would like to admit to, I was basically “forced” to address my medical needs. I presented with multiple issues; the foremost pre-diabetes, alcohol addiction and debilitating anxiety. I suffered with paralyzing “white coat syndrome” and was terrified to take the necessary steps.

From the moment I met Dr. Spencer, my anxieties were greatly diminished. He addressed my medical needs in a very thorough, but gentle manner. Dr. Spencer, I believe, truly heard me and responded in a manner appropriate to my state of mind.

Dr. Spencer has truly saved my life.

With his guidance, I have lost 35 pounds, my A1C is stable, and my anxiety issues were addressed with an outstanding psychiatric referral. I am now exercising aerobically 5 times per week and have initiated weight training with a professional. AND, I have been sober for 18 months!!

SteadyMD is a perfect fit for patients like myself who suffer with “white coat syndrome”. Sitting in a waiting room anticipating a consultation with a doctor resulted in indescribable anxiety. Being able to fully address my medical needs without that experience has been extraordinary.

I highly recommend SteadyMD, and specifically Dr. Spencer Nadolsky. My life has never been healthier or happier.

– SteadyMD Patient

I was very excited to become a patient of Dr. Spencer Nadolsky when he joined SteadyMD and…I felt sure he would be a great fit for me, particularly in treating my type 2 diabetes.

Prior doctors were very good and did their best with the time available during our appointments, but 10 minutes every few months to go over labs, medications, and answer questions and address concerns about my condition was wholly inadequate. Any nutritional advice was very always very general and/or vague and frequently seemed contradictory. The only consistency was that my A1c was not improving and the amount of medication was increasing every few months.

Since I’ve become Dr. Spencer’s patient, I get direct and understandable answers about medication, nutrition, exercise, or any other health questions or concerns I may have for him. I love Dr. Spencer’s practical realism and emphasis on nutrition, weight loss/weight control, and exercise as critical components of managing type 2 diabetes.

In the 8 months I have been his patient, I have made positive strides in overall blood sugar control while reducing medication dosages, something that has never happened in the years prior with conventional medical supervision.

While the “heavy lifting” of modifying and improving my lifestyle habits rests with me, Dr. Spencer’s ongoing support and availability to talk about new issues or reassure me that I’m on the right track contributes directly to my present level of success.

I am very fortunate to have Dr. Spencer as my physician, and I love the efficiency of the SteadyMD delivery of physician services.

Common Questions

Who is Dr. Spencer Nadolsky?

Dr. Spencer Nadolsky is a leading pioneer in natural methods to help people reverse diabetes and lose weight. As a board-certified physician and diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine, Dr. Nadolsky has helped tens of thousands of people lose weight and manage their diabetes, both online and through his in-person medical practice.

Why Are We Doing This?

To provide better care for our patients.

Our healthcare system is broken. The typical primary care doctor has between 2,000 and 5,000 patients. Seriously. That’s not a typo. The average patient visit? 15 minutes. You find a doctor, make an appointment (sometimes several weeks out), drive to the doctor’s office, wait in the waiting room, wait in the exam room, finally see the doctor, have a short visit, leave, drive home. Hope that you’re billed fairly / correctly.

The moment the doctor sees you is the first moment he thinks about you.  And the moment you leave he stops thinking about you. Why? He needs to see about 30 patients per day to meet his quota / make a decent living.

And what if you have a follow-up question? What if you forgot to ask something? What if something happens a few days later?

We are proud to be pioneering a completely new model of primary care.  With modern technology, we can focus on a limited number of patients, anywhere in the world, and provide really great care. We can be your health partner for the long-term, in the same way that you might have an accountant or financial advisor.

We’re starting by doing this ourselves personally. Next, we hope to expand this across the country with the participation of many other doctors.  We think we can realistically improve healthcare in this country in a way that is actually achievable today without massive healthcare reform. An improvement that would provide better care for most Americans: online anytime with the same doctor, in-person when you need it (via the current system of 15 minute appointments with a doctor that doesn’t know you, wasted time in waiting room, little follow up, frustration with health insurance).

When Will You Start Taking Patients Online?

We’ve already started! We’re taking on just a small number of patients each week and we’re ramping up slowly and carefully. After you reserve your spot, we can give you a better sense of when we can have our first appointment together.

How Much Will This Cost?

SteadyMD is $99 per month for a twelve-month membership. There are no additional fees or co-pays.

There is no risk and no long-term commitment required to get started. You may cancel anytime within the first month and you will only be billed for that one month.

This gives you the opportunity to have your first appointment with your SteadyMD doctor, get comfortable with them, and ensure that they are a good fit for you.

All memberships include unlimited text messaging, same-day phone call appointments, and same-day video chat appointments.

Why An Annual Membership?

The annual membership allows our doctors to serve a limited number of patients and have significantly more time to dedicate to each patient. Our doctors have more time to think about you and develop a personal relationship with you.

Will My Health Insurance Pay The Membership Fee?

No. Insurance companies don’t yet reimburse for this type of service. Plus, we really like the idea of having a more direct economic relationship between you, the patient, and us, the doctors, without all of the typical complications.

Does This Replace My Health Insurance?

No. You’ll still want to keep your health insurance (for seeing specialists, for catastrophic events, for labs, etc.). We may refer you, if needed, to get lab tests done or to a specialist in your area to be seen in-person. You would want to run that visit through your insurance.

Some patients may choose to downgrade their health insurance plan (e.g. from Blue Shield Gold to Silver) and augment their plan with my service. In many cases, you can save money and (in our opinion) get better care.

How Does This Compare to Other Concierge Doctor Services?

Most traditional concierge doctors charge between $2,000 and $5,000 per year and are setup to see patients in-person at their office. Our service is much more affordable and we are fully-geared to efficiently communicate with you regularly via phone, text, and video chat. Also, we can continuously monitor your blood sugar, diet, exercise, and vital body measurements. And, of course, we can take patients anywhere in the country!

What is SteadyMD?

SteadyMD is a company we’ve partnered with to design this service and bring it to our patients. We’re really excited about it. We’ve got a team of people behind-me working on this and improving it every day!

Is This Safe and Private?

Yes. The entire SteadyMD system we are using is secure and HIPAA compliant (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) to ensure that your communication with us remains a private matter between us. Your information is stored on secure servers and we take every measure to ensure your privacy and the safety of your data.

What is the Cancellation Policy?

Within the first 30 days, if you decide that the service is not for you, you may cancel your annual membership. You will only be charged for one month.
