Meet Tommy

Patient saves $1,200 a month on prescriptions after losing 85 pounds

As a registered nurse, paramedic, and educator, Tommy knew a lot about health, but he didn’t make his own health a priority. He had been reliant on insulin to manage his Type 2 Diabetes for 25 years, which cost him more than $1,200 out of pocket each month.
When he started the Evolve program with Dr. Freilich and his team at Kansas City Gastroenterology & Hepatology Physicians Group, Tommy was able to make changes that put his wealth of knowledge to use and his own health first. In nine months, Tommy has lost almost 85 pounds and no longer needs insulin.
