About Wise Patient Internal Medicine

Wise Patient Internal Medicine is a primary care practice located in Seattle, WA on the east slope of Capitol Hill. We are an an independent clinic improving patient outcomes and experience through our use of open medical notes, an interactive patient portal, and proactive medicine. Dr. Warren and Dr. Beda utilize medical scribes, which allow us to pay attention to you rather than a computer screen, and we spend more time with you during your appointment than typical primary care clinics.

We currently offer two models of primary care: “traditional” insurance-based primary care and Wise Patient Direct Primary Care.

Direct Primary Care
Insurance-Based Primary Care

Wise Patient Direct (Direct Primary Care)

Wise Patient Direct is an innovative membership model of primary care that does not bill your insurance. Rather, for a flat monthly fee, all the primary care we can offer under our roof is at your fingertips – increased access to your physician via phone/text, same or next day appointments for urgent matters, longer appointments, and reduced lab costs.

    ZocDoc ZocDoc: Dr. Warren | Dr. Beda

“I would highly recommend this practice to anyone. They were extremely helpful with my tests that needed to be done, as well as operated a professional atmosphere where I felt comfortable speaking with the doctor about my issues. All questions asked were answered without any underestimating the importance of the answer to me.”

“Rachel is honest, straightforward, compassionate and capable. Simple as that.”

“Dr. Warren was really great. He took the time to listen to all of my concerns and explain everything to me on a basic level so that it was easy to understand. He was not rushed and seemed to really care about his patients. He went over different options with me and made sure that I was getting the best treatment for me, not just prescribing something right away.”

“My experience was excellent — the staff was knowledgeable, sympathetic, and breezily competent. In fact, I’d say I have never had a better experience in a medical setting. I should recommend the services of Sam Warren to my own mother.”

“Dr. Warren and his staff are so good about being thorough and making you feel comfortable during your exams. Every time I’ve gone in, I’ve left feeling like all of my questions were properly addressed. With his tips on staying healthy and constant words of encouragement, I feel I have a grip on my personal health and wellbeing.

“Consistent, swift and human-centric care by compassionate and smart individuals. Outstanding care team. Thank you, Wise Patient!”
