Direct Primary Care & Family Medicine located in Williamston, NC

Steven Manning, MD, founded AccessMedicine in Williamston, North Carolina because he believes that good health should be about you and your family, not your insurance company. This direct primary-care subscription service with a low monthly fee takes the weight of worry off your shoulders, ensuring that you and your family receive state-of-the-art, in-office medical testing, primary care treatment, and counseling at no extra expense.

Dr. Manning earned his bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology from East Carolina University (ECU) in Greenville in 2002. He earned his MD at Brody School of Medicine at ECU in 2008 and then completed his residency in Family Medicine at Brody and Vidant Medical Center (formerly Pitt County Memorial), where he served as Junior Chief Resident and Chief Resident.

A Williamston native, Dr. Manning returned home and opened Martin Family Medicine to fulfill his dream of serving his community with quality medical care. Following three years of watching patients become stressed dealing with insurance companies and noticing how much of his practice was devoted to processing paperwork, Dr. Manning made a dramatic change by opening an independent, subscription-based family practice called AccessMedicine.

At AccessMedicine, now with locations in Williamston and Washington, North Carolina, Dr. Manning provides you with better access to quality care, longer visits, and a more comprehensive and holistic approach to medicine. Additionally, he’s dedicated to keeping your care affordable and AccessMedicine’s pricing 100% transparent.

Dr. Manning serves as Medical Director for Urgent Care Down East in Washington, North Carolina, and as Vice Chief of Staff at Martin General Hospital in Williamston. He’s also an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at ECU. A loving husband and proud father of three children, a servant of The Lord Jesus in all he does, Dr. Manning welcomes your family to the AccessMedicine family.

Our Practice Location



    Direct Primary Care means your physician and healthcare needs are always at your fingertips. Unlike traditional medical practice models, we’re here for you whenever you need us.

    We love providing timely, quality care to our patients and we’re sure you’ll love it too.







In a conventional clinical model, doctors tend to carry anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 patients. This can greatly decrease the level of care given to each patient, strictly on the basis of time. At AccessMedicine, we allow for 30 minutes minimum for each patient and have plenty of time for questions. More time with you as a patient means better care!
