Our services

Novant Health Bariatric Solutions – Matthews is here to be your partner on your journey to a healthier life. We are committed to helping people lose weight safely and keep it off. Our providers will work with you to understand your goals and any factors, related to health or lifestyle, that have been holding you back. Once we understand where you are coming from and what your personal weight loss goals are, we will develop an individual plan for you to achieve them.

Regardless of your plan, you will have access to all the services and tools you need, along with a team of providers you can trust.
