Addressing the Mind-Body Connection

Mental health plays a pivotal role in weight loss. For many, weight gain results from a negative relationship with food. Here, patients receive a comprehensive psychological assessment as part of their journey, whereby an experienced psychologist can uncover potential triggers for excessive eating. This evaluation works in conjunction with surgical services to strengthen your overall health and well-being and is a critical step in long-term success. Through our affiliation with Emory Healthcare, this service is currently available via telemedicine with an Emory-recommended bariatric psychologist.
