Overview

Diagnoses, treats and prevents medical problems either caused or aggravated by lifestyle or stress, including:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Migraine and tension headaches

  • Nervous stomach and irritable bowel syndrome

  • Sleep problems

  • Eating disorders

The Behavioral Medicine Clinic provides evaluations for other medical UVA clinics to help determine patients’ psychological readiness and social support systems. Patients preparing for surgeries, such as weight reduction, organ transplant or insulin-pump are often required to undergo these evaluations.

We train patients to be aware of and to control body responses. Through computerized monitoring, patients can observe these controllable body responses, such as muscle tension and breathing patterns.

With treatment and practice, nearly 80 percent of our patients learn to control or eliminate these symptoms.

Evaluations Before Treatment

Our Behavioral Medicine Assessment Clinic provides evaluations for other medical clinics at UVA to help determine patients’ psychological readiness and social support systems.

This can help us determine a patient’s ability to follow through with post-operative instructions or treatments.

Patients who are preparing for certain surgeries, such as weight reduction, organ transplant or insulin-pump are often required by doctors or their insurance providers to undergo these evaluations.
