CoreLife Novant Health is thrilled to announce the opening of a new healthcare clinic in Charlotte this October 2023. This initiative represents a dynamic partnership between CoreLife Healthcare and Novant Health, uniting their expertise to offer a holistic approach to healthcare, focusing on obesity and its related chronic conditions. With an established presence in the Winston-Salem area of North Carolina, CoreLife Novant Health is expanding its reach to Matthews, with doors set to open on October 23.

Dr. Cressent Pressly, the medical director for CoreLife Novant Health, shared, “Through our integrated care model that seamlessly coordinates medical treatment, nutritional guidance, behavioral health support, and exercise regimens, CoreLife Novant Health is dedicated to delivering evidence-based, personalized care to patients seeking effective management of their weight and weight-related health issues. This comprehensive approach to combating obesity as a disease sets us apart in the healthcare arena, and we are excited to further extend our services to the vibrant city of Charlotte.”

Sean Kostkowski, Founder and President of CoreLife, explained the inspiration behind CoreLife’s inception, stating, “CoreLife was born out of a deep concern for my brother’s lifelong struggle with obesity. During our adolescence, there simply wasn’t a comprehensive healthcare solution available to him. Now, CoreLife is bridging that gap and providing thousands of patients with the care they deserve every year. Our partnership with Novant Health enables us to reach even more individuals and families seeking improved health and a more fulfilling lifestyle.”

CoreLife is a nationally recognized healthcare organization, known for its patient-centric approach that prioritizes individualization, attentive care, education, and accountability. Each clinic assembles a dedicated team, including a nurse practitioner, registered dietitian, exercise specialist, and licensed clinical social worker, collaborating harmoniously to craft compassionate, comprehensive care plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

The new CoreLife Novant Health clinic in Matthews is conveniently situated at 855 Sam Newell Road, Suite 204, Matthews, NC 28105. To explore our program further or schedule an appointment, prospective patients are encouraged to reach out via phone at (800) 905-3261 or visit our website at
