Andy Ellner


Primary Care Provider (PCP)

"I try to really listen to my patients—to understand them as people: what drives them, what they're worried about and what's really going on in their lives."

Harvard Medical School


"Phenomenal initial consultation with Dr. Andy and the follow up with the NP was great as well. I’ve never felt like I was alone or 'just another patient' with Firefly. It’s all felt very personal."

Juan V, Firefly Patient


Andy Ellner doesn’t just provide quality primary care. He believes everyone and anyone should have access to it. And with a successful career holding such positions as the founding co-director of Harvard Medical School’s Center for Primary Care in addition to the institution’s Program in Global Primary Care and Social Change, Andy has seen enough to know where the system falls short. That’s why he started Firefly Health—to give people an easier way to access a primary care provider without sacrificing the quality of care they receive.
