Bariatric Surgery (i.e. gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, gastric band) saves lives. However, before surgery, patients typically must have a psychological evaluation to ensure that they can emotionally withstand the dramatic changes in lifestyle, appearance, and health that follow weight loss surgery. Our office offers these clearance evaluations and can forward results to your surgeon.
For those patients who are taking antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications prior to surgery, it is usually necessary to change the dosing, frequency, or formulation of the medication after weight loss surgery since the anatomical structure of the digestive tract is altered. We can help optimize your psychiatric medication regimen after surgery and provide ongoing mental health treatment as you navigate your new life after surgery.

Chronic pain can improve with spinal cord stimulators. We are able to complete a psychiatric evaluation and quickly send the report to your pain management doctor.
Chronic pain conditions typically co-occur with depression, anxiety, and difficulties with sleep. Psychiatric symptoms can improve after pain is adequately treated. If you feel like you no longer need psychiatric medications after your spinal cord stimulator is implanted, we can help you slowly discontinue your psychiatric medications under medical supervision. At the same time, we are also able to provide ongoing psychiatric support for those who may require medication or talk therapy treatment.
Make your appointment with the psychiatrist so you can finally get the pain relief you need.
