Dr. Warren 2018-08-30T23:22:45+00:00

Meet Dr. Warren

Dr. Warren founded Wise Patient in 2011 with the belief that the quality of patient-physician communication is the foundation of the practice of medicine.  With time-crunch and other barriers to patient-physician communication so obvious, Dr. Warren strives to restore the patient-physician relationship by scheduling longer appointments and maximizing communication technologies. He believes that patients are better served when they have more physician time.  He also believes that the fee-for-service system is misaligned and incentivizes physicians to see more patients instead of prioritizing health outcomes.

Washington State Is Fully On Board

Washington State is fully on board with direct primary care. Permanent law RCW 48.150 “Direct Patient-Provider Primary Health Care” can be accessed at http://tinyurl.com/kt627jy. It is well written and full of appropriate patient protections. This law emphasizes that DPC practices do not bill insurance for primary care services and that patients may discontinue their membership at any time.

Categories of Care

Doctor-patient interactions will generally fit into one of these six categories:

  • On The Fly: Written messages on the portal or via text message.

  • Phone Care: 15 minute (or less) conversations scheduled into the MD’s workday.

  • Face to Face Focused Appointments: Usually limited to 1-2 topics.

  • Face to Face Overview Appointments: Ideally once every 6 months. Not required but highly encouraged master strategy sessions about ‘the big picture’ and how to achieve your long-term health goals.

  • Once Yearly Full Physical Exam: Dr. Warren sometimes uses handheld ultrasound technology within this physical exam.

  • Fitness Tracking: This can take many forms depending on technology preference of patient.
