Bariatric Surgery Appointments and Referrals

As a health psychologist, I work with patients to set their own personal weight loss goals, determine barriers to reaching those goals and finding practical and motivational solutions to overcoming those barriers. We work closely within their medical team to help guide them to a healthier, more productive new lifestyle.
