We now offer a comprehensive functional medicine plan that uses gut microbiome, hormone, micronutrient, and other testing (as appropriate). This plan is especially suited for patients who want to address a chronic illness or take a “deep dive” into their health with a doctor trained in functional medicine.
You and your SteadyMD doctor will build a detailed health timeline from birth to present. Starting at the foundation of health, you will develop a personalized plan focused on optimizing sleep, exercise, stress, nutrition and human connection. Using the best of modern testing, you’ll develop a comprehensive picture of how your body functions.
Since we only accept a limited number of patients, you’ll get dedicated personal attention without the hassles of a traditional clinic. You’ll be able to securely text your doctor 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 takes a functional approach to your health.
Let’s do this – reserve your spot now!
Functional medicine is a systems biology approach to health and disease. Instead of looking at organ systems (heart, lungs, gut, nervous system, etc.) as separate entities, functional medicine examines how the body functions as a whole. In doing so, the root cause of disease is often uncovered and the healing process can occur.
Often times, a specific diagnosis can be the result of many different factors. One root cause can also manifest as many different symptoms. How those symptoms manifest depends on an person’s genes, environment and lifestyle.
You will be paired with a board-certified doctor trained in functional medicine. Prior to your appointment, you’ll fill out a comprehensive intake form to get a detailed understanding of your health.
You and your doctor will connect over two-way video chat for 90 minutes. You’ll really get to know each other and together, develop a plan to monitor and manage your health.
Call, text, or video chat your doctor anytime. Every conversation continues where you left off. Your doctor knows you, is always at hand, and is part of your life.
During your first appointment, you and your doctor will:
Call, text, or video chat your doctor anytime, on any device. Every conversation continues where you left off. Your doctor knows you, is always at hand and is part of your life.
If you get sick or injured, your doctor is here to help. In minutes, they can prescribe medications and have them sent to your local pharmacy. At no additional cost, your doctor can consult with a team of specialists including dermatologists, cardiologists, and neurologists. If needed, your doctor will refer you to a specialist near you and will oversee all of your care.
Proactive preventative care, too. Based on your age, goals and personal medical situation, your doctor will recommend ways to catch small problems before they turn into big problems.
SteadyMD is designed for anyone who does not have a primary care doctor, or has a primary care doctor but is looking for more convenient and more personalized care.
Because we are online, we can pair you with a doctor who focuses on your specific medical conditions, dietary preferences (Paleo, Whole30, vegetarian, gluten-free), and lifestyle (weightlifting, running, cycling)
Contact with your SteadyMD doctor is completely through secure text, phone, and video chat.
With modern technology, we are able to treat most acute and chronic conditions, completely online.
In fact, we believe that our care is often much better than traditional care because your SteadyMD doctor can give you more time and attention. Additionally, your doctor is available at your convenience. No driving or waiting.
If your SteadyMD doctor thinks you should be seen in person, they will direct you to a local specialist or urgent care facility, request the records, and, if necessary, go over all the details with you. If lab tests are needed, you will be directed to a local testing facility.
You can securely text your SteadyMD doctor anytime. Your doctor will respond to their text messages at various points throughout the day. Also, you may schedule a same-day phone call or video chat appointment.
Yes. All of our doctors are licensed physicians and can prescribe a wide range of medications available in a traditional office setting. They can also direct you to suppliers of high-quality supplements.
We do not prescribe opioids, narcotics, and other controlled substances (but can coordinate your care with a specialist when these are necessary).
Just like a traditional primary care doctor. We will send you to Quest, LabCorp, or any other convenient local facility for most labs.
Specialty labs (such as stool tests) often can be done from your home at your convenience. Note that while most conventional labs are covered by insurance, specialty labs are usually not covered by insurance (we can help you get a discounted cash price).
Your SteadyMD doctor will review lab results with you and together you will develop a plan.
No. All you need is a computer or smartphone. The device must have a reliable internet connection and a camera (for video chat).
The Functional Medicine Plan is available to anyone who is 18 years of age or older.
If you are interested in signing up other family members, please mention it to your SteadyMD doctor.
Traditional primary care doctors simply don’t have time for you. They have about 2,500 patients and must see about 30 patients per day to meet their quota. The average patient visit? 15 minutes.
SteadyMD is a completely new approach to primary care. Our doctors see a limited number of patients, so they can give you the time and attention you deserve. Our service is completely online, which means that you get comprehensive, personalized care from anywhere in the world, on any device. Your SteadyMD doctor is your partner in health, long-term.
On demand doctor services are generally not setup to allow patients to form long-lasting relationships with their doctors. Typically, when you use an on-demand doctor app you are paired with a random doctor who does not know you or your medical history. In contrast, with SteadyMD, you are always connected with the same doctor (hopefully for many years), who really knows you and the specific issues that are relevant to your care.
Most concierge doctors charge between $2,000 and $5,000 per year and are setup to see patients in-person at their office. SteadyMD is more affordable and our doctors are fully-geared to efficiently communicate with patients via phone, text, and video chat. Also, SteadyMD enables you to partner with a doctor that is specifically suited to you, instead of one that just happens to be local to your area.
The SteadyMD doctors are board-certified physicians that have been selected because of their focus on building relationships and providing quality long-term care to their patients.
Yes. The entire SteadyMD platform is secure and HIPAA compliant (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) to ensure that the communication with your SteadyMD doctor remain a private matter between the two of you. Your information is stored on our secure servers and we take every measure to ensure your privacy and the safety of your data.
We will connect you to another SteadyMD doctor. With your permission, this SteadyMD doctor will be fully enabled to review all of your records and history.
Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Later, inform your SteadyMD doctor of your emergency and they will help oversee and monitor your care.
Your SteadyMD doctor is your personal online doctor for everything, including:
The SteadyMD Functional Medicine Plan is $199 per month for a twelve month membership.
There is no risk and no long-term commitment required to get started.
You may cancel anytime within the first month. Because of the upfront work involved in this Functional Medicine Plan, a $500 cancellation fee will apply should you choose to cancel within that first 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.
The SteadyMD 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.
Yes. The SteadyMD membership fee enables us to provide a level of personalized service (via our doctors and technology) that is not typically reimbursed by most insurers.
Yes. In most cases, the fee can be reimbursed by health savings accounts (HSA’s), flexible spending accounts (FSAs), medical savings accounts (MSAs), and health reimbursement accounts (HRAs).
If requested by your benefits administrator, we will provide you with a Statement of Services.
Please note that the fee cannot be paid using your HSA, FSA, MSA, or HRA debit or credit card. You will have to manually submit your claim.
You should keep your health insurance so that you are covered in case of a medical emergency.
Also, your SteadyMD doctor may refer you to a local lab or local specialist when needed. You would want to run those visits through your health insurance. We will help you find providers who take your insurance.
If you don’t have insurance, we can help you get a discounted cash price on prescriptions, bloodwork, and labs.
Some of our patients save money by downgrading their health insurance plan (e.g. from a Gold Plan to a Silver Plan) or by participating in a Medical Cost Sharing program.
When your SteadyMD doctor prescribes medications, refers you to a local lab, or refers you to a specialist near you, we will help you find the best available price and provider. We can help you decide whether or not to pay directly or run these through your insurance.
Some specialist visits can be handled completely online and at no cost to you. Your SteadyMD doctor has access to a team of specialists that they can consult with anytime when needed.
