We have so much exciting news to share with you! We are thrilled to announce the opening of our new full-service location in Charlotte! This new space and the addition of Nurse Practitioner Stacy Krause to our Charlotte staff will allow us to expand the services that were previously offered at our Charlotte location. After years of working in traditional disease oriented practices and hospitals, Stacy is excited to be a part of Better Life and our prevention and patient centered approach. Services to be offered at the Charlotte location will include phlebotomy, bio-identical hormone pellet therapies, GAINSWave therapies, and of course all a la carte testing and full program services. On the horizon IV therapies and aesthetics such as Botox and dermal fillers will also be added to the services offered at the Charlotte location.
We are excited to welcome to the Better Life team Age Management and Sexual Health Specialist Dr. Merrill Matschke. Dr. Matschke is a board-certified urologist who graduated from Dartmouth College and completed medical school and residency at Northwestern University in Chicago. He then pursued a fellowship in male reproductive medicine and surgery at Baylor in Houston, as well as Cenegenics Age Management Medicine training and certification in Las Vegas. Dr. Matschke received awards for outstanding teaching, academic excellence and compassion during his residency training. He is excited to be seeing patients in both the Mount Pleasant and Charlotte locations!
Dr. Matschke’s inspiring story begins when he failed to make his high school baseball team due to excess weight and slow running times. Devastated to learn he would no longer be playing ball with his peers, he struggled and failed to find a successful path to healthy weight loss. Ten years of no sleep, poor food choices, and no exercise while in medical school only compounded his struggles with weight and a real solution to optimal health still evaded him. It wasn’t until Dr. Matschke’s mid- 40’s and the birth of his twin boys, when he realized he needed to combine all aspects of a healthy lifestyle in order to be the kind of father two active twin boys would need. Prioritizing his health, and replacing poor food choices and lack of exercise with a more disciplined healthy lifestyle, he can now show his boys by example how to lead an active and engaging life. Dr. Matschke is excited to share with Better Life patients that it’s never too early nor too late to begin their journey to a better, and more fulfilling, life. Get to know more about Dr. Matschke by emailing him at DrMatschke@BetterLifeCarolinas.com or read more about him here.
The Better Life team is excited and looking forward to what 2018 will bring! Continuous scientific medical advancements in age management, disease prevention, and sexual health means there has never been a more exciting time to be in this field! We are honored to be able to share and implement these life changing advancements with our patients.
