We put our patients first, focusing on quality of care and providing the people in our community with medicine they otherwise could not access.

Our Mission

Our History

When Dr. Freilich first began practicing as a Hepatologist in the late 1990s, his primary focus was treating patients with Hepatitis C. However, he often identified that they were still experiencing liver damage.

Driven by a desire to provide alternative options to his patients and to provide them with opportunities that they otherwise couldn’t get anywhere else, Dr. Freilich founded KCRI to help explore new and emerging treatments and improve the breadth of his patients’ options.

Over the past 20+ years, Dr. Freilich and his team at KCRI have conducted more than 330 clinical trials, focusing on more than 20 different disease areas. The team at KCRI has been instrumental in the processes it takes to bring new treatments to the public. Without physicians like Dr. Freilich and places like KCRI, many treatments may never receive FDA approval and therefore be available to you.
