Direct Access operates as a Direct Primary Care practice. It’s a new approach to medicine. So, how is it different?
Did you know that most Primary Care Physicians have between 2,500-3,500 patients? Dr. Cianciolo and Dr. Purcell will limit their practice to 600 patients. This means that they can spend more time with you when you need them. It also means that when they are not actively seeing a patient, they are able to coordinate your care and research the latest advances in treatments. Your well-being is their priority, and the reason for why they do what they do.
Direct Access does not accept insurance so you won’t have a middle-man in your primary care. Decisions about your healthcare will be made by you and your doctor at Direct Access, without the impersonal management that inevitably comes from third-party payers. Instead, patients pay a monthly membership fee which can save money and lead to better treatment.
Direct Access has established a straight-forward, tiered payment solution for our patients to receive high-quality healthcare at affordable prices. A detailed list of member fees and procedure costs is available here.

We have negotiated the very best wholesale lab prices for all labs that we must send outside our office as well as whole generic medications we dispense in our office. Those savings are passed directly on to our patients.
Literally. After hours, weekends, holidays – there’s no bad time to receive excellent medical care.
You won’t feel rushed through an appointment, and there’s never a question you won’t have time to ask. Part of the relationship you’ll build with your doctor is based on your understanding of your care. That’s what we call personal healthcare.
Because we have reserved our time for a smaller panel of patients, there will be no “squeezing you in.” You are a priority, and you’ll feel like one. We will do everything in our power to get you into the office the same day or next day when you need care.
You’ll be able to reach us and your medical information via internet, webcam, email and text.
This exam will be fitted to your personal medical needs. It’s all about you, and your specific goals for wellness. A physical exam will be done, and appropriate tests will be ordered. We will also make sure you are up to date with all recommended health screenings.
For example, breathing treatments, Cryotherapy and simple lesion removal are all included in your membership fee. If there is an extra charge for a service, you will know exactly what it is before proceeding.
If you require a consultant for specialty medical care, our doctors will work closely with that specialist. Because Direct Access is not affiliated with any other healthcare systems, the choice is ours to make together.
