Verified Patient Reviews
I'm reviewing for a second time because I think Dr. Warren and his staff are that awesome. Best primary care doctor I've ever had and would highly, highly recommend.
Bedside Manners were great. Very friendly and willing to listen to all of your problems before making a diagnosis. Willing to list out all options and helps you make a decision based on all factors.
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.
Dr. Warren is very easy to communicate with. He is passionate about practicing wellness and has his customers top of mind. He has a refreshing approach to finding natural ways to remedy concerns.
Dr Warren was incredibly helpful. He listened, made time to answer numerous questions and was very approachable. I highly recommend his practice.
very good doctor and great communicator . Having an assistant taking notes in the room is a little uncomfortable though
Dr. Warren is a great guy and I really enjoyed my visit.

Dr and staff were pleasant and welcoming.
Dr. Warren is wonderful, as is his friendly assisting Nurse! I felt completely welcome and genuinely cared for as a new patient.
I'm not one to usually leave reviews, but I just had my 3rd appointment with Dr. Warren and felt the need to. He and his staff are just awesome, plain and simple. Dr. Warren is knowledgable, thorough, personable, and every other great quality you'd want in a doctor. I feel comfortable telling him anything that is going on, and am confident he is going to choose the right course of action in terms of treatment. Stop looking around for primary care docs in Seattle, choose Dr. Warren if you can. You won't regret it.
Great caring doctor summarizes my first impression of Dr. Warren. It was my first visit and he devoted extra time to hear my problems and addressed them very quickly, professionally and now, I am actually looking forward to visiting his office for any future health issues.
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 sould recommend the services of Sam Warren to my own mother.
Great, super informative and helpful.
Great physician with an outstanding staff. I had a change of employment and he became out of my network, but would definitely go back to him if I could.
Sam is great. Great person to talk to and very knowledgeable! The ability to check your results online and be able to communicate with your doctor is a fantastic resource.
My visit was very good with Dr. Warren. He is very personable, easy to talk with and listens to all concerns. His Medical Assistant was also very nice, and personable as well. All around a great experience with Dr. Warren and his staff.
Terrific experience. I'm so glad I found the Wise Clinic.m I would highly recommend Dr Warren and his staff.
Dr. Warren made me feel very welcome in his office and provided me with an executable plan based on attainable health goals. I look forward to future visits with Dr. Warren and tracking my progress.
He was very knowledgeable and helpful with diagnosing and treating everything. Initially i was nervous with having to meet a new doctor. But he made me feel very comfortable and at ease, so i could actually focus on getting help rather than worrying about being judged.
Very informative, actually listened, good staff. I recommend it.
I love Dr. Warren's bedside manner which is what keeps me coming back even though he is not in my medical insurance's network anymore. I like that he is quick but thorough and seems like he truley cares abut your health. I never leave the office thinking I was rushed out or that all of my questions were not answered like at other clinics.
I had an all-around excellent experience with Dr. Warren and his staff.
It was a pleasure to meet Dr Warren. He and his team are fantastic. I loved the way they treatment me. Very patient, very analytical. I really felt to be in very good hands.
Nice office in a good location. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes, and the staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Warren is personable and expresses genuine interest in his patients' wellbeing. I would definitely recommend.
Dr. Warren is exceptional! His patient care is fantastic and the office is very efficient and well-organized. Everyday they have a staff meeting where they go over each patient for the day so that whoever sees you is knowledgeable and prepared. He asks great questions, has great explanations, takes notes the whole time, and then goes over, in great detail all of his thoughts with you and takes time to answer any and all of your questions. It's hard to really put into words the relief I feel about having a primary care doctor I trust and respect. I'm so glad I found Dr. Warren!
Getting there was a challenge and the address was not clearly marked, so I am glad allowed enough time to get there. I was impressed with Dr Warren. He spent a lot of time with me and addressed my concerns. His assistant took full notes and condensed it into a note card for me to take with me, plus I will be able to access everything on line. His assistant was awesome.
I appreciated how comfortable Dr. Warren and his staff made me feel. Solid people, great care!
Very thorough consultation on my first vist. The DR and staff were helpful and personable
simple but elegant office, friendly and personable staff, charming and professional doctor.....he asked the appropriate questions, took the time to listen to my answers and then to explain his observations and recommendations......toss in his good sense of humor, great smile.......and smart, my my, even I left feeling smart....oh jeez, may I say wise? No. Wiser.
Sam is thorough and thoughtful. He truly partners with the patient and is an excellent listener. He has an efficient office system as well as an easily accessible patient portal which allows one to ask questions as well as review one's own health history. I have recommended him to several other people
Dr. Warren and his nurse were very thorough. Dr. Warren wrote down his thoughts on a white board as he examined and questioned me and then we went through the game plan. I'm happy with the game plan and am even more happy that I've found a doctor who is willing to spend the necessary time with me to fully understand my issues and then work with me toward a solution.
I am in a very tight financial situation at the moment, and Dr. Warren completely ignored my statements to this effect. I'm not talking about actual pricing of services offered — just his overall dismissive attitude toward the idea that I might try to save a few bucks wherever possible. A couple of examples: • during a follow-up appointment to discuss some test results, I asked for some simple, direct answers to a few important questions. Rather than give me these answers, I was instructed to purchase a book. • at no time during this discussion of my test results (which showed that I am diabetic) was I informed that my insurance might pick up some of the costs related to a blood tester. I told him directly that I purchased one and only found out later, from other diabetics, that doctors can write prescriptions for the extremely costly test strips. He knew that finances were a concern for me. He knew that I had a tester. But he never offered the option. Obviously I want to take care of myself and treat my condition. But I'd rather do it with a physician who understands and might be able to help accommodate my financial situation. The attitude of both Dr. Warren and his staff was essentially to ignore my requests for alternatives and just keep pressing on with these costly options.
Great experience! Highly recommended.
He was very friendly and informative, and really seemed to care about me as a person in addition to my reason for visiting. I have chosen him as my primary care physician because of this. Parking was super easy too in the lot provided.
Great Doctor and friendly staff. Very professional bedside manner, listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable. The ease of making appointments are a plus.
So nice to encounter a doctor like Dr. Warren who really spends the time with you to listen and ask as many questions as necessary to get to the bottom of something. Such a great bedside manner, so intelligent, and so reassuring. Can't say enough good things!
Great bedside manner! Really nice guy. Addresses all concerns and then will email you a copy of your visit and lab results, in case you forget any instructions. Very much recommend him!
Dr. Warren and the nurses in the office are efficient, personable, and patient. We were establishing a medical history for me and discussing the possibility of prescribing new medication. Dr. Warren took time to answer all my questions and look up any questions he didn't know the answer to off the top of his head (I was asking about drug study specifics, etc.). Our visit was probably 20-30 minutes. Before this visit, I couldn't remember the last time I hadn't felt rushed at the doctor.
Dr. Warren was very personable, knowledgable, and organized. He took the time to make me feel at ease and listened carefully to my questions. I think very highly of Dr. Warren.
Great team. Very professional. Very human. Good easy to access location
Good sense of humor. Kind. Easy to talk to.
Sam is a great doctor. He is friendly and helpful. He cares about what you're going through, and he will assess your issue/need to solve them, not push them aside. The nurses are very kind as well. I look forward to my next appointment with them.
He took the time to discuss contexts of my life that are contributing to my symptoms, and in very short time gave me an honest assessment of what he thinks is going on. He did so with complete respect and care, and in collaboration with a terrific medical assistant, provided the best doctor visit I have had in memory. This place is a gem.
My experience with Doctor Warren was excellent. I was seen right away and everyone there was very friendly. He seemed genuinely concerned about my condition and asked a lot of questions to determine why I might be feeling bad. I will definitely be returning. Oh... and it's a nice part of Capitol Hill with lots of street parking :)
It's always a pleasure visiting Dr. Warren. The Wise Patient office is always clean and I feel like I am always receiving extra special attention (though I'm sure he sees many patients a day). All support staff is incredibly friendly and seem to enjoy and take pride in their careers. Most importantly, Dr. Warren shows a genuine concern in your wellbeing - beyond a simple 'diagnosis' - and possesses a strong medical knowledge. I'd also like to mention that Wise Patient is "with the times" and offers many paperless and digital resources - an office fit for 2015!
I always have a pleasant and efficient visit with Dr. Warren. He and his medical assistant are friendly, thorough, and I enjoy my visit every time.
Dr. Warren is thorough but not invasive, and extremely personable. His entire office is all managed online, and the access to him via email is fabulous.
Dr. Warren was pleasant and thorough. I also like that I can see the notes for the visits.
Dr. Warren speaks Spanish and if you are from Latin america he can help you :) its very kind and his medical assistant too.
it was thorough and very professional!
best doctor's appointment I've had in many years
Wants to understand the whole problem and not just single things out. Good bedside manner
Quick and got the job done
Very friendly staff. Dr. Warren does a great job breaking down issues in order for them to be treated. He is articulate and seems to care for his patiences' wellbeing.
Drove from Tacoma to Seattle because of insurance. But this guy was well worth it!!! Beautiful office, quick, small, go there!
Great visit! Everyone I met was polite, professional, understanding, non judgemental, and was willing to listen to everything I had to say. I didn't feel rushed in any way and I was met with solutions at the end of My visit. This is sort of a cliche review but I hate going to the doctors and this was great! Parking was a little tough because the lot was sort of hidden but that's totally on me!
I suffer from extreme anxiety, especially around closed off spaces like a doctors office where you are essentially trapped. Dr. Warren made me feel comfortable and was great about actually digging into my background in a non intrusive way. He even went as far as to recommend several alternative treatments and doctors. You can feel comfortable at this office. Thanks!!
Very knowledgeable, and very willing to make referrals when he's not sure about the right course of action. A+, would see again.
We are new to the area and I found Dr Warren for my husband on line. Being's that men don't usually like to go to the Dr. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that he really liked Dr. Warren and was happy with his office visit and his treatment. He will definitely go back to him in the future.
Great experience. Dr. Warren is extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable with the information he provided. Highly recommended!
He is an excellent doctor. He is very thorough and he listens attentively.
Great Doctor, Highly recommend him.
Dr. Warren was great, extremely professional yet easy talk to
Dr. Warren and his staff were top notch.
It was a great experience. Small practice, non intimidating environment, and both Dr. Warren and medical assistant Megan were very warm and sincere. Planning on making this clinic my primary one.
I really liked him...very thorough and extremely personable.
I was very late because of not knowing how to drive in Seattle as yet, but he worked me in when I got there. Very pleasant, capable staff.
I was in and out in no time. The medical assistants were welcoming and insightful. Dr Warren made me feel comfortable and provided me with the help and answers I needed.
Dr. Warren was great! It was my first time going to the doctor in quite some time, and Dr. Warren made it a great experience. The nursing staff is wonderful as well. My nurse was very thorough and also extremely nice. I definitely recommend Dr. Warren's office to anyone in need of a good doctor.
Feel right at home w/ Dr. Warren
It was my first visit with him. He was excellent. The time he took explaining and giving details was unbelievable for a doctor. His staff is wonderful. He will be my doctor for life.
Dr. Warren really knows his stuff, he's on top of all the latest research, very personable, and takes as much times as needed to make sure your taken care of and leave feeling that way. His staff is great and the office is really nice. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Warren and his team were incredibly attentive and kind. Couldn't have had a better experience!
I don't like going to the Doctor - never have. I also don't like leaving reviews, but since finding a decent doctor is so difficult I want to hopefully help others find Sam. I was very pleased with my experience at Sam & Co's operation. All of the staff I encountered were pleasant, professional, and caring and seemed very knowledgeable. Sam provided me with a clear and honest diagnosis and prescription for recovery, erred on the side of my well-being when making recommendations, and his staff was very responsive the following day to additional follow-up questions that I had. Caring, responsive, efficient, thorough, and honest are the adjectives I'd use to describe Sam and his staff.
Doctor Warren and his staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgable. I felt very comfortable being open about my medical history and had an excellent dialogue to help diagnose and set a treatment path. I would highly recommend Dr. Warren.
Really nice and detail oriented person. Great experience.
He is awesome down to earth and a great bedside manner...The office staff are awesome also ....
He's great. He was very knowledgeable and spent a lot of time giving me thorough answers to my questions.
Dr. Sam and his staff were very personable and professional. I felt like they were genuinely interested in the holistic picture of my health. Their unique outlook on patient care (open notes & payments without insurance), combined with their general affability and knowledge make them a clear choice for anyone looking for a practitioner. I highly recommend them!
Both he and his MA made me feel right at home. Wasn't the awkward new patient introduction. They both took the time to talk to me about everything I was coming in to talk to them about and some. I've been going to the Polyclinic for years and was tired of the rushed care they push through their doors. Dr. Warren took the time and made it a point to show he isn't one of those Doctors who just coast through their day. I was looking for a smaller practice that was more personable and this place is more than I had hoped for. Lucky me, it was my first shot. I'd recomend him to anyone looking for actual care and someone who is looking for a Dr to explain and problem solve even the minor things. I will say he isn't a good artist though. (Drew a diagram on his whiteboard lol) You can't go wrong with this office.. everything is clean, neat and in order. Doesn't really have the "doctors office" feeling, it's more homey. Definatly don't feel like you are catching the koodies from the last patient as you sit there and wait.
Dr. Warren is a great guy and is very knowledgeable, I highly recommend him.
He was very cool. Really connected with him!
My first experience has been great so far. Dr. Warren is friendly and confident, and he gets right down to business and explains everything to you in common language (or he'll explain some medical term if it's a little obscure). He's quick to begin problem solving. I was actually surprised at how short the appointment was from the initial check-in to the blood draws and U/A samples that concluded the session. I left with a plan of action to address my problem, and I felt a great relief from anxiety when I left. The patient portal is also great. I was able to view some of my test results right away, which put me further at ease. There's still more to be done in the next couple of days, but he and his staff made a great first impression. I'd highly recommend Dr. Warren.
Very professional staff. Dr. Warren was thorough and consistent with treatment options and methods. It was my first visit and I will definitely be returning.
Very professional, courteous, and respectful. Glad to have found a new GP!
A doctor that cares goes a long way in my book and they are pretty thorough compared to other offices i have been in.
Excellent, comfortable, informative
Really personable, extremely easy to talk to.
My visit was personable and educational! Dr.Warren professional demeanor is mixture of enthusiasm and knowledge. His interest in practicing medicine is apparent and is eager to dive deep to better understand his patients. The staff was friendly and the office environment was refreshing.
like Mary Poppins...."practically perfect in every way". In all seriousness, this the best doctor I have ever seen. Compassionate, professional, and prompt. He is up to date on all current trends in medicine and can break it down for easier understanding. This is how doctoring should be done.!! The patient portal, having access to my records and his comments to read online is revolutionary.
This was my first visit with Dr. Warren, for an annual physical. He was prompt, informative, and extremely organized. I feel I am in good hands.
Thorough and genuine PCP. Will recommend.
Great Doc, Highly recommend him.
Great doctor. Thorough, friendly & knowledgeable.
I like Sam, and I tend to really dislike doctors (I tend to find them in too much of a hurry, bad listeners, etc). Sam has done a good efficient job at managing an array of minor health conditions, referring me as needed. He also did a very good job of inciting me to go on a diet and exercise plan without being too pushy or scold-y.
Very happy. Went in to try a new primary care Dr and thought he was thorough and very friendly
Awesome doctor. I've been through a LOT of various doctors in my life, so I know when one is working for a paycheck and when one truly cares about his patients. Dr. Warren is a perfect example of the latter. He showed great care and attention to me and was extremely thorough! Listened to everything I had to say and did not rush through our appointment just so he could move onto the next patient. No doubt that he will be my primary doctor from now on! I would give 6 stars if I could!
Great doctor and very easy to talk to. Was very helpful and understanding.
A very Great and Professional DR, Very highly Recommended.
Very thorough and his small staff spent plenty of time addressing all of my questions and concerns.
Very thorough, felt he took the time to explain and most importantly listen. Felt that my opinions on possible treatments were respected and considered. Excellent staff as well. Highly recommended..
Dr Warren was excellent! I had several things I wanted a doctor's opinion on and, being incredibly busy, had sort of saved up until I found time to see one. Dr Warren was very patient, he took his time and asked tons of questions. I felt like he really cared about understanding the whole picture. I feel like I'm in good hands.
Dr. Warren was incredibly patient and listened to my every concern. He asked very detailed follow up questions to be sure he had the whole picture and explained everything well to me. His Medical Assistants are great, as well. Super friendly. I was also helped within a minute or two of arriving and was taken back to the patient's room right away. Highly recommend to others!
He's really great! He obviously cares about his patients and took much more time with me than I anticipated. Love how easy it us to see the patient notes and the emphasis on technology. The only thing I didn't like was that his medical assistant stayed in the room to take notes. I was al little uncomfortable with that and didn't feel like I could share everything with him.
Knowledgable, Professional, and interested in your individual needs. He made sure all my questions were answered, and was good at translating medical diagnosis into "civilian" language. The office staff and environment is friendly and professional as well. I will coming back to Dr. Warren for my wellness needs in the future.
Excellent first appointment with a good discussion of my health and health goals. He also asked some very good questions and provided good tips.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Warren and will definitely continue to use him as my primary care physician. The medical assistant was very friendly and the office and the website are great!
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Warren, I have been trying to find a primary care doctor for some time now with no luck until now. He is very knowledgeable, and really shows he cares about your health. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Warren.
Extremely compassionate, knowledgeable, and thorough.
Very smart and knowledgeable Doctor, also the nurse was very accommodating, smart and helpful.
Sam is awesome, love having him as my GP!
I thought he was very personable and helpful concerning the symptoms that I was dealing with.Also coming up with a plan for full recovery. Have scheduled a follow-up appointment for more test to be done.
Dr. Warren was thorough, intelligent, and friendly. He was prepared to discuss the subject matter of my visit and covered a lot of material quickly without making the experience feel rushed. He also did not linger or come close to wasting either of our time. I was using this first visit as an interview to select a PCP and am looking no further.
Dr. Warren's practice was very clean and organized, and made me feel very comfortable upon arriving. He was very attentive and helpful with guiding me towards my health goals. Overall I had a very positive experience at the office and will visit Dr. Warren in the future.
I had a very nice experience at Dr. Warren's office. He and his medical staff are friendly, professional and efficient. I would highly recommend Dr. Warren.
My new general practitioner! Love Wise Medicine!
Very nice and friendly.
good, modern, excellent
The attention to details was excellent. I was treated very well and felt welcome. Thanks
Very professional; Took care of my issue quickly and showed me how to access my patient record of the appointment online. Great office environment and knowledgeable staff.
I couldn't be more pleased with my visit with Dr. Warren. He was incredibly kind, understanding, and very knowledgeable. I'm really looking forward to having Dr. Warren be my primary doctor.
Open minded and helpful. Exactly what I was looking for.
Dr. Warren was incredibly professional! He made sure that all of my concerns were addressed, and listened to everything I had to say. I love the fact that they allow you to see your own medical records as well. Fantastic experience!
Loved him. Greatv philosophy and seems to genuinely care
Needed to make an appointment and was so nice and understanding. Non judgmental. Friendly and nice staff
