Pre-Treatment and Pre-Surgical Evaluations

In order to provide the best possible care for their patients, many physicians are requesting that Pre-Treatment or Pre-Surgical Evaluations be conducted prior to medical treatment.

These evaluations may be used to determine readiness for treatment or surgery; one’s understanding of what is involved in the procedure; prior and current mental health; willingness to modify behaviors; one’s ability to adopt a new, often healthier, lifestyle; and finally, one’s ability to cope with the consequences of the recommended medical intervention.

Procedures that often prompt these evaluations include:

  • Organ Transplant
  • Cosmetic Surgery
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Bariatric Surgery
  • In Vitro Fertilization
  • Egg Donation

E!Dr. Beresford provided psychological screenings and evaluations for “What’s Eating You?”, E! Channel’s reality show about extreme eating disorders. The series chronicled the lives of men and women whose very survival was at risk as they battled not only their distorted body images, but also self-created, life-threatening food rituals and compulsions.

Quoted in Books
Manopause: Your Guide To Surviving His Changing Life Dr. Beresford was interviewed by Lisa Friedman Bloch, co-author with Kathy Kirtland Silverman of “Manopause: Your Guide To Surviving His Changing Life” (Hay House, 2012), which explores how biological and psychological factors collide with the societal pressures men face, and provides advice on how women can help themselves and their men move through and enjoy this sometimes challenging phase. Dr. Beresford's experiences in working with couples during this transitional time are included in the book.
