Before undergoing certain medical procedures, patients may be required to get a psychological clearance evaluation. There are several reasons why this may be necessary:
The psychological evaluation typically takes between 2-4 hours and includes a clinical interview, psychological questionnaires, personality tests, and cognitive screening. The psychologist will also review medical records and provide a report with recommendations for any necessary treatments that could improve the outcome of the surgery. This report will be sent to the referring physician.
