Whole-Person Approach.
Tailored Lifestyle Plan.

Getting to the heart of good health.

It’s become all too easy to poke holes in today’s healthcare system. Patients routinely complain of feeling like a specimen rather than a human being, inadequate care, and erroneous billing. We all know it doesn’t have to be that way, but aren’t quite sure where to go for an alternative. That’s why we created Ember Modern Medicine.

At Ember, we’re returning to the roots of one-on-one care between doctor and patient when practicing medicine was truly relational and personal. We’re bringing a fresh new perspective to Greenville and building a community of members who believe that their health is priority. Becoming a member of the Ember family provides so much more for your overall health. Imagine a primary practice that removes the barriers to better health: Unlimited access to your doctor and the latest in private medicine. No long wait for appointments. No expensive insurance required. And no copays…ever.

We bring together multi-faceted healthcare in one location through services provided by our providers together under one roof. We serve patients in all situations and stages of life. We provide care for all ages, birth to elderly, and offer disciplines that include medical-complimentary care. We offer office visits, walk-ins, virtual visits, and home visits, as well as corporate programs for your business.

If you’re looking for something different to empower you on your health journey, then Ember is designed just for you. Our transparent, up-front monthly membership creates a simple and stress-free healthcare experience. We’ve put the relationship between you and your doctor back at the heart of health. We’re revolutionizing healthcare one member at a time and building a community for better health.

Meet Brian.

I grew up in the small town of Waterford, PA, delivering newspapers before leaving for the midwest to study broadcast journalism at the University of Missouri. I then spent the next several years working in cable news in both Atlanta and New York. In New York, I met my wife and father-in-law, a longtime primary care physician at the Cleveland Clinic. After many late-night conversations with him, I decided to switch careers to pursue family medicine. After stops in Boston and Costa Rica, I moved to Chapel Hill, NC, where I completed medical school at UNC. I then did my residency in family medicine down the street at Duke University Hospital.

In 2021, I opened Ember Modern Medicine, a practice I had dreamt about for more than a decade. By eliminating overpriced insurance restrictions, I can spend more time connecting with my patients and focusing on their health and wellbeing instead of rushing through 7-minute visits checking government boxes.

My wife and I are now blessed with two beautiful daughters. In my free time, I enjoy competing in endurance sports. I’ve run more than a dozen marathons, finished 2nd in a 50-mile ultramarathon, and barely survived an Ironman Triathlon. Lately, I’ve been attending Swamp Rabbit CrossFit. In 2021, I started a running streak, attempting to run at least one mile every single day. When you see me at Ember, ask me how that is going (so we can keep each other accountable)!

“Our focus from day one is to change the way healthcare happens here in Greenville -- respectful, affordable, and caring. It's a better experience for everyone, just how medicine should be.” —Dr. Blank
