Feeling Good – Patient Success Story “Tyrell”

The MERCI Clinic patients want to tell their story– stories of how the clinic helps them get through the day. Without care from the clinic, they would be without much needed medical and dental care– and life-saving medicine. With no other options, they would be forced to seek care in the emergency room or– just go without. Many can only afford to buy either food for their family or insulin for their diabetes.

Tyrell is a 38 year old patient who is being treated for cavities and facial fillers. Growing up, he never went to the dentist except to have his wisdom teeth extracted; he had never had a cleaning. Tyrell also receives medical care and free prescriptions from the pharmacy at MERCI Clinic. He calculates his medicine bill would be at least $400 per month. He is self-employed and has never had health insurance. His back was recently injured in a car wreck, so he is not able to work much anymore.
