Surgical Assessments

Dr. Meshberg performs psychological assessments for a variety of surgeries, including bariatric surgery and elective surgery (such as cosmetic surgeries). These assessments ensure that the patient is aware of how life-changing the experience might be, and this awareness will determine the patients' ability to follow through, perhaps for a lifetime committment.

One of my specialties is conducting psychological evaluation for all types of bariatric surgeries, including gastric banding, lap band, gastric bypass, roux-en-y, duodenal switch. My assessments are accepted by insurance companies.

If you are unable to come to my office, I can do a video or telephone assessment. During the assessment, I will give you a greater understanding of the reality of surgery and the life long commitment helping you to have a more successful outcome. Please feel free to call or email me for more information.
