Bariatric Psychology Services



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 interpret the testing, collaborate with other providers in your bariatric program, and 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.
