Your Personal Doctor, Online

Featuring a doctor who understands your lifestyle inside and outside the gym.

Hi, I’m Dr. Dani Urcuyo

I’m proud to introduce a completely new approach to medical care.

In the same way coaches work with their athletes to improve fitness, there is now a way for doctors to play an intricate role in the improvement of our patients’ health. My mission is to help people become the healthiest versions of themselves using the principles of functional medicine, movement, and nutrition. In doing so, we can work together to prevent illness before it happens.

As your own personal online doctor, I’ll be your partner in health, spending as much time as you need to get to the root cause of your symptoms and optimize the way your body functions. Through my traditional medical training as well as being involved in CrossFit for over 10 years, I’ve developed an understanding of the elements that play into a person’s overall wellbeing including training, nutrition, supplements, recovery, and common injuries.

Since we only accept a limited number of patients on the platform, you’ll get dedicated personal attention without the hassles of a traditional clinic. You’ll be able to securely text me for a quick answer or have more in-depth conversations over the phone or video chat. Welcome to true preventative care tailored individually for you by a doctor who understands your lifestyle.

Let’s do this – reserve your spot now!

How it Works

1) Reserve Your Spot 

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

2) 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. My 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), apps (MyFitnessPal, Fitbit, Runkeeper, Strava, StrongLifts, Strong, Whoop), laboratory testing, imaging, and advanced functional medicine testing.

3) Have a Doctor “At-Hand” Who Really Knows You

Text me anytime with any medical question or concern. Schedule a phone call or video chat.  I’ll instantly receive the health data that you share with me, including weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, diet, lifting stats, and other output from connected devices and apps that you may use.  If you have a medical issue, I will be there to talk with you, assess the situation, listen to your concerns, and oversee and monitor your care.  If needed, I 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.

4) All Your Records and Activity in One Place, Online

I will also retrieve your health records from past doctors and hospitals (with your permission, of course).

Common Questions

Who Is Dr. Dani Urcuyo?

Since doing my first CrossFit workout 10 years ago, I’ve been an avid CrossFit athlete and coach. I earned my medical degree from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and I specialize in Family Medicine and Functional Medicine.

I competed in the 2011 CrossFit Games and currently run an online training program that helps individuals incorporate efficient and effective training into their busy lives alongside my wife Julie Foucher (herself a four-time CrossFit Games athlete and medical doctor).

I’m a firm believer that food and movement have the power to prevent and treat many chronic health conditions and I’m passionate about using lifestyle and Functional Medicine to empower individuals to live their healthiest lives. I believe SteadyMD is at the forefront of a primary care revolution, and I’m excited to be part of it.

Why Am I Doing This?

To provide better care for my 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, and hope that you’re billed fairly and 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 20 patients per day to meet his quota and 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?You have to leave a message with a receptionist only to get an answer in a few days or be asked to schedule another appointment.

I’m proud to be pioneering this completely new model of primary care. With modern technology, myself and other SteadyMD doctors can each 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.

When Will You Start Taking Patients Online?

I’ve already started! I’m taking on just a small number of patients each week. After you reserve your spot, I can give you a better sense of when we can have our first appointment together.

How Much Will This Cost?

SteadyMD is $79 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 me, get comfortable, and ensure that I am 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 me to serve a limited number of patients and have significantly more time to dedicate to each patient. I 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, I really like the idea of having a more direct economic relationship between you, the patient, and me, the doctor, 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.). I 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 my 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 I am fully-geared to efficiently communicate with you regularly via phone, text, and video chat. Also, I can continuously monitor your diet, exercise, and vital body measurements. And, of course, I can take patients anywhere in the country!

What is SteadyMD?

SteadyMD is the company I’ve partnered with to design this service and bring it to patients everywhere.

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 me remains secure and private. 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.
