I grew up in the small town of Hopkinton, NH. After receiving a degree in Molecular Biology from Kenyon College I spent a year living in Costa Rica, teaching preschool and volunteering in a public hospital, while becoming fluent in Spanish. Having fallen in love with caring for patients, I returned to the US to apply to medical school. After receiving my medical degree from Stanford University I returned to New England for residency training in family medicine at Brown University in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. During this time I was fortunate to be able to work in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, and gain perspective on how health care is delivered in other countries. I stayed on at Brown for a one year Fellowship in Maternal Child Health, pursuing additional training in prenatal and obstetric care, care of the newborn, and family planning.
For the past three years I have been working at Compass Medical in Easton, and prior to that spent five years practicing full spectrum family medicine with obstetrics at a group practice in Attleboro, MA.
I pride myself on helping my patients feel more self-efficacy regarding their health and giving them concrete tools and realistic goals. I also enjoy teaching third year medical students at Brown Medical School as part of their core family medicine clerkship.
In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my husband, Eric, and young kids, Naomi and Gabe, having dinner with friends, reading a great book and serving as co-troop leader for Naomi’s Girl Scout Daisy troop.
When first learning about the Direct Primary Care model, I was thrilled to finally find a system which values taking the time to give each patient the care and attention he or she needs. In co-founding Infinity Family Care I am excited and grateful to be able to care for patients the way I envisioned when I decided to become a family doctor.

David Cunningham, MD
I grew up in a small suburb of New York City with my parents and older sister, Laurie. My family encouraged and supported my many interests growing up but somehow I knew from an early age I would be a doctor. After studying Nutritional Science at Cornell University in rural upstate New York, I returned to New York City for my medical training at Cornell Medical College. During my four years of medical school and one year at the Columbia School of Public Health, I realized the field of Family Medicine was a natural fit for my curiosity, my social personality, and my ability to develop long-term relationships based on trust. My formal training at UNC-Chapel Hill, NC allowed me to develop the clinical skills needed to practice the full range of Family Medicine.
After twelve years of practice in Massachusetts, I have come to realize that trying to manage complex health issues within the current fee-for-service healthcare system (where doctors have on average 7 minutes per office visit) is setting us up for failure. After learning about the growing Direct Primary Care movement I immediately knew this was the model of care I was looking for my entire career. I feel very fortunate to have the love and support of my family throughout the creation of Infinity Family Care, and to have found a kindred spirit and partner in Wendy Cohen.
My professional interests include: making preventive care part of everyone’s life, metabolic disorders including diabetes and obesity, lifestyle and exercise counseling, sports medicine, procedures including skin biopsies/excisions, orthopedic joint injections, emerging technology, and communication enabling healthcare transformation.
When I am not at the office, I enjoy training for and competing in local cycling events and triathlons. But mostly I can be found spending time with my wife Abby (a pediatrician practicing next door to the new office!), coaching soccer in town, and exploring the world with my two active kids, Josie and Gabe.
