Daniel Curnyn, MD

Doctor Daniel Curnyn is a recent graduate of the Saint Joseph Health System (SJHS) Family Medicine Residency Program. He chose to stay on with SJHS and is currently serving as an Associate Director for the Residency Program. Dr. Curnyn came to us from the small farm town, Geneseo, Illinois. He came here for the culture of the Family Medicine Residency Program here at SJHS. His fiancé has recently signed with a local physician group as well, ensuring a more long-term commitment to this area!

Dr. Curnyn had a positive influence from his own physician growing up that helped lead him towards a profession in medicine. During his undergraduate studies, Dr. Curnyn volunteered at a local emergency department. Dr. Curnyn attended medical school at Saint Louis University. During his residency at SJHS, he suffered a fibular fracture on Foot and Ankle day at the Sports Medicine Conference during his second year. What are the odds?

Dr. Curnyn finds the most rewarding part of being a physician is having a patient return to the office excited to share something they did or improved because of his motivation. He finds his job meaningful as well, because he gets to pass on lessons to the upcoming physicians. He also enjoys watching a family in his care grow and expand throughout the years. Dr. Curnyn has been known as the “vest guy” and “math nerd” by his fellow colleagues.

Outside of work, Dr. Curnyn enjoys watching football, boating, sailing, skiing and binging on the latest TV show. One of his favorite places to visit are the Rockies. He and his fiancé have a mini golden named Teddy.  Recently, he attended a Taylor Swift concert with his fiancé wearing a “Look What You Made Me Do” t-shirt. It’s ok Dr. Curnyn, just “Shake It Off”!
