Experience You Can Trust

ATA Clinicians have been conducting evaluations and working with thousands of both pre- and post-surgical patients for 20  years.

Efficient & Timely

ASMBS standards for a psychological evaluation are followed, and a complete report is faxed within a few days of the evaluation.

Easy to Work With Experts

Pre- and post-surgical consultation is always available to you and your team. If ATA is unable to accommodate your patient in-house, we will assist in helping the patient find a referral.

Medical Providers are Saying:

- Surgeon, Virginia

ATA makes it easy for patients to schedule appointments, especially when patients aren't comfortable making phone calls.

Their response time to provider issues and inquiries is excellent.

- Physician's Assistant, Ohio

ATA is a very thorough and responsive group!

We have used various other organizations in the past, and we feel ATA is truly looking out for our patients and their long-term success. 

- Surgeon, Virginia

I appreciate the communication with the ATA psychology team.

They are always prompt and receptive. I also appreciate how thorough they are in their evaluations.

- Program Coordinator, Michigan

ATA has been a lifesaver for our bariatric program.

The ease of patient referrals and care is beyond tremendous!

- Patient Navigator, Arizona

ATA provides a quick, easy, and simple way for our patients to get the Pre-Op approvals they need.

This takes one thing off of their list really quickly and makes them feel accomplished.

- Surgery Coordinator, North Carolina

Referred patients are always scheduled in a timely manner.

Communication with the providers through Spruce has been very convenient, and the clearances are always sent promptly after the patients are cleared!

- Surgeon, Indiana

We use ATA as needed when our in-house mental health provider is backed up.

They efficiently meet our needs and become part of our team on an as-needed basis.

- Program coordinator, Virgina

They are always willing to work with our practice to meet the needs of our patients.

In order to do that, you need experienced mental health clinicians who understand your priorities and workflow.

The problem is, among the many clinical mental health options available, it's difficult to know which are well-established, stable options to support your growing practice.

We tailor guidelines to each surgical center we work with, as if we are an extension of your team as if we are there in your center.
