Psychological Evaluation

Our team wants to make sure you get the care you need after surgery. That’s why a psychological evaluation is one of the steps you need to take before surgery. Your seminar folder will have a list of suggested psychologists who have experience with Bariatric patients.

If you choose to use your own psychologist, make sure the following tests  and topics are included in your interview.

Tests

  • The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (a general personality profile)
  • The Shipley Scale (an estimate of intelligence)
  • The Beck Depression Inventory®—II  (symptoms of depression)

Topics

  • Why you want surgery
  • How obesity affects your health
  • How you feel about exercise
  • Your mental state
  • Your marital history and social support
  • Your history of being overweight
  • Your weight loss history
  • Your family history
  • Your alcohol or drug use
