PRE-SURGICAL PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION-
This appointment lasts about two hours and includes a clinical interview, discussion with behavioral counseling, and the administration of self-report questionnaires/psychology tests. Following the evaluation, Dr. Lisson will prepare a comprehensive report to send to your bariatric surgery program. This report will be forwarded from your bariatric surgery program to your insurance plan when it is time to seek authorization and approval for bariatric surgery.
You can request a follow-up appointment at any time. Dr. Lisson often sees patients after bariatric surgery who may experience related or unrelated stress, setbacks in their weight loss, or those who seeks improved motivation and coping strategies.
SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS-
Dr. Lisson would like to develop a monthly support group for bariatric patients who have completed surgery. If you are interested, please send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The focus of these meetings would be bolstering self-confidence, improving coping strategies, managing conflict with others, and providing emotional support for participants who are experiencing their weight loss journey and/or focused on weight maintenance. Meetings will be kep positive and solution-focused.
