In mid-January of 2021 Tommy Dudley, a retired nurse and paramedic, looked at a photo of himself and didn’t recognize who he saw. From there, he met with his primary care provider who referred him to gastroenterologist Dr. Bradley Freilich with Research Medical Center. Dr. Freilich introduced Tommy to the Metabolic and Weight Management Program, in which Tommy was one of the first patients to enroll.
Since enrolling, Tommy has lost nearly 50 lb. in a six month period, which is halfway to his goal of 100 lb. in one year. Tommy credits his success to being dedicated to the program, the support of his wife and the 1:1 educational support from the gastroenterology team.
