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.
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.
