Epiphany Health

Dr Gross is one of the Godfathers of DPC having his epiphany about direct care in 2009 and launched one of the earliest DPC practices in 2010. This led to “Nuts & Bolts” – be sure to attend his panel on the cost savings brought to DeSoto hospital!


Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Gross received his undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University. Following graduation, Gross coordinated years of clinical cardiology research for the nation’s leading Cleveland Clinic cardiology program before attending Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine. He completed his family medicine training as the elected chief resident at University Hospitals of Cleveland.

He has been in private practice in Southwest Florida since 2002. He is a pioneer in the Direct Primary Care delivery model, frequently speaking at national meetings, conducting media interviews about market-based health care innovations and writing articles for national publications.

He is a healthcare consultant to physician practices, medical organizations, insurance groups, hospitals and private businesses. He is the founder and Chairman of DPC Action, a non-profit national Direct Primary Care advocacy and social welfare organization. He is consulted by lawmakers and policy leaders on local, state and national health policy initiatives, including formal testimony before the US Senate and consultation with several federal agencies, and The White House.
