Bariatric Surgery Evaluation:

We also provide pre-operative psychological testing for clients who are considering bariatric surgery (a weight loss surgery). Our surgical weight loss psychological screening (SWLPS) assesses a wide range of important factors that influence post-surgery adjustment, compliance with post-operative programs and likelihood of relapse. By screening for significant risk factors, such as anxiety or depressive disorders, suicidal tendencies, and substance or drug usage, our licensed professionals evaluate each candidate’s attitudes and behaviors, emotional strengths and coping techniques which will be needed to deal with stress and changes.

Our SWLPS assessment incorporates our expertise and research skills, which are critical for your successful bariatric surgery weight loss program. Pre-operative/post-operative evaluations are paramount  to provide the best support for you. Assessment outcomes provide insight regarding:

  • Helping streamline your program
  • Identifying common challenges
  • Addressing follow up efforts
  • Helping to successfully adjust to a new lifestyle
