Bariatric Pre-Surgical Psychological Assessments
This 2 hour evaluation is performed by a licensed psychologist to confirm whether or not a person is mentally, emotionally, and relationally prepared for bariatric surgery. Most insurance companies require patients get a psychological evaluation prior to this surgery. This surgery is for weight loss and requires significant lifestyle changes afterwards. Bariatric surgery may also be known as: Weight loss surgery, Lap band surgery, Stomach stapling, Gastric bypass, Gastric sleeve / balloon, or V-bloc surgery. All of these procedures normally require a psychological evaluation prior to being approved.
Recommended treatment options will be provided if the person is not deemed suitable for this surgery. Here at Total Health Guidance we provide nutritional counseling and a host of holistic treatment options. We also offer a Guaranteed Weight Loss program with a balanced and integrated approach between the physical and psychological elements of weight management.
