Jerry Shane Purcell, MD

DPC Physician, Author, Speaker

About

Shane Purcell, MD is an author, speaker, dad, and family physician in Anderson, SC. He grew up in a small town in south Georgia before attending Mercer University School of Medicine in Macon, GA. He completed his family medicine residency at AnMed Health in Anderson, SC.

After 14 years of working in private practice and owning his urgent care center, he left traditional Fee-For-Service medicine to start a direct primary care (DPC)  clinic with business partner Dr. Amy Cianciolo. Direct Access MD was founded in August of 2015 and lives on strong today adding two additional employed physicians and one physician assistant to the clinic. DPC has allowed Dr. Purcell to return to his oath, mission, and passion of “patient first” medical care.

Dr. Purcell is a founding member and major advocate for the DPC Alliance to educate and advise primary care physicians seeking the DPC model. He has spoken on direct care models and the devaluation of primary care in our healthcare system across many media and event platforms. He is the author of Magic, Pixie Dusts, and Miracles: A Guide for Direct Primary Care and Employers and shares the story of connecting employers and employees to direct primary care clinics.

In his free time, Dr. Shane loves college football, floating slow rivers, traveling to imaginary places, writing, and sharing stories with DPC friends.
