"My purpose when founding Wise Patient was to offer lengthy appointments and unrestricted patient-physician communication between appointments. Soon, I was having these great conversations with my patients about the power of everyday decisions regarding nutrition, fitness, and time-budgeting to improve happiness and lifespan. I knew enough about my patients’ workdays and family life that I could create a mental image of them from where it was they were messaging or calling me. More patients wanted that. More doctors wanted that. Here we are today, using a modest monthly membership fee, paid by patients or their employer, to make it financially sustainable for the clinic. I love the science of medicine. You’ll find I take a metabolism-centered or mental health-centered view of many medical topics. I am most passionate about longevity, heart disease, blood lipids, nutrition, exercise, time-management, weight loss, anxiety disorders, and the psychology for successful living with chronic disease. I love my family and pursue a work-life integration that allows me to enjoy them and them to enjoy me. My wife Neala and I have 2 boys, Mo and Bowie, ages 6 and 3. Both boys are quite physical so we wrestle a lot and hang gymnastics-like accoutrements from an I-beam in our living room. My way of life also includes running and swimming with Neala in Lake Washington."
"You Will Be Listened To We will take time to understand your values and personal vision of wellness. On average, a traditional primary care doctor will see between 3-4 patients an hour; at Wise Patient we schedule 2 patients an hour. Discussing options with patients is a responsibility we take seriously, and consider your healthcare a partnership. We will take excellent care of you and provide you with information to help you take care of yourself. You Will Take Part In Decisions About Your Care We believe information is a critical tool for better health, so we invest in your health education. We want to be confident that you and the Wise Patient Team are on the same page. When we share statistics about disease risk to you, we will personalize them to your unique situation. Your Busy Schedule Will Be Respected We want it to be rare that you wait. To that end, we will ask you to provide us with a practical amount of pre-visit information and to show up on time. Our system of work flow emphasizes preparation and time awareness. We pledge to continually improve our scheduling methods to maintain your access to the clinic, including for same-day and short-notice appointments. Your Health Will Benefit From Our Independence Wise Patient is not influenced by the financial motivations of a large institution. If we refer you for outside testing or to an outside specialist, you can be confident that we believe it is in your best interest. Without external pressure to refer you to one particular hospital’s group, Dr. Warren, Dr. Beda and Dr. Lee have the opportunity to refer you to the most qualified specialist for your unique situation. Your Medical Record Will Be Electronic Our use of electronic health records (EHR) will make your medical care safer, more successful, and more efficient. All medical tasks such as lab and imaging tests are tracked until results are available, and overdue results are flagged for follow-up. We can use our EHR to generate lists of our patients who have concerning test values or are behind in screening measures. That is powerful. You Will Have Your Own Personal Online Patient Portal The Patient Portal is an easy way to see and schedule upcoming appointments, exchange messages with the Wise Patient Team, review your medications and test results, and access Dr. Warren’s, Dr. Beda’s, and Dr. Lee’s full assessment and plan after each visit – all information exchanged through the Patient Portal is encrypted and HIPAA compliant."
