    First talk with your surgeons office. They always have a list of people to use, sometimes they can include the fee into a suit fee. This means they charge a set price and everything is in that one price. Also, it may be that you can use a counselor for the eval which means money saved.

    Does your bariatric surgeon have any suggestions? Surely his other patients had to have a psychiatric evaluation. Most all insurances require it. My sugeon gave me a list of about 10 doctors, some took insurance and some didn't. I found one that took my insurance. I had to pay a $40 co-payment.
