Today’s guest on the show is Dr. Rick Henriksen, the Medical Director at Steady MD, a medical concierge’s service that deconstructs doctor’s visits and health care from inside the walls of brick and mortar clinics and puts it out into the exciting world of telemedicine. Steady MD partners patients with the perfect doctor based on medical needs, personal interests, goals, and more. Then, the patient and doctor have their comprehensive first appointment via two-way video chat where they really get to know each other. After having the time to discuss the client’s needs, they develop a plan together to monitor and manage the patient’s health. From then on, it is a real relationship with the doctor who is available anytime via phone, text, or video chat. Talk about revolutionizing the health care system we know today! Dr. Rick is a board-certified family physician, and he draws upon his knowledge of ancestral health principles along with western integrative and functional medicine to improve the long-term health and whole-body wellness of his patients. Talk about a breath of fresh air! In today’s episode, we discuss Dr. Rick’s path to success, his “I’m here when they need me” approach, the difference in incentives for a membership-based system vs. a pay-per-visit system, and much more. If you are excited about the changing atmosphere of health care, this episode will be right up your alley! We hope you enjoy it!
