A bariatric evaluation by a trained professional is usually a requirement by most insurance companies and bariatric surgery teams before approving bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery can be life-changing, and the goal is to maximize your success. The purpose of the bariatric evaluation center is to identify your strengths, assess support systems, identify patterns of healthy or unhealthy behavior, assess coping skills, and identify potential needs and supports post-operatively to maximize your success.
