Empower our patients to gain personalized insight into their health through the monitoring of times series data, and provide the holistic care and guidance needed to optimize their well-being.
Our journey began when Michael Kurisu, DO, was a Clinical Director in the Center of Integrative Medicine at UC San Diego, where he also served as physician for world-renowned scientist Larry Smarr PhD. A pioneer of the future, Dr. Smarr was the original “measured man.” He came to his first appointment with more than a decade of data generated by tracking his own health daily. It was the beginning of a unique partnership and a glimpse into the future of what health care could be.
Inspired by the experience, Dr. Kurisu envisioned integrating time series health data -- the repeated measurement of data over time -- with his holistic approach to patient care. He founded Measured Wellness on the premise that better care begins with personalized insight into the health of each individual. He then tapped into the rapidly growing category of wearable technologies to make daily monitoring of each patient’s health a reality.
Today, Measured Wellness brings together the personalized insights gained through health monitoring and its passion for holistic care to empower each patient to optimize their well-being and better navigate their health journey.

WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING
Joy G / AGE 61
"I needed to lose some weight, and Dr. Kurisu suggested I begin using an AppleWatch and a WiFi scale, so we could track my progress He monitored my data, and sent me encouraging text messages to help me stay motivated. He really cares about helping his patients succeed!"
David K / AGE 59
"Dr. Kurisu helped me learn to track my health using an Apple Watch, Oura Ring and Kardia mobile EKG. We were able to predict a tachycardia event based on REM/deep sleep ratios, and found that adjusting my sleep schedule helped prevent future episodes. I feel peace of mind knowing that my data is going to Dr. Kurisu."
Joseph S / AGE 41
"After turning 40, I wanted to be proactive about getting healthy. Dr. Kurisu suggested a continuous glucose monitor to help me gain insight into how food is effecting my mood and energy level throughout the day. I learned a lot about what was causing spikes in my glucose, and was able to make small changes to my diet that made a big difference."
