Psychologists

Choosing surgical weight loss is a serious decision. It is important to make sure that you are ready for the significant lifestyle changes that surgery will bring. You must obtain clearance from our psychologist. This appointment can be done before or after meeting with your surgeon. However, in order to expediate the authorization process we recommend scheduling this appointment before your surgical consultation. Getting clearance from the psychologist does not guarantee your candidacy for surgery.

If you are over the age of 18, you must schedule an appointment with:

Dr. Warren Huberman
20 East 49th Street, 2nd Floor (between 5th and Madison Avenues)
New York, NY 10017
(212) 983-6225

Dr. Donna Rivera
1048 49th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11219
(917) 991-0774

The fee is $250

If you are under 18, you must speak with our Research Coordinator at (212) 263-3166.
