The article "The Use of Personality Inventories in Pre-Surgical Psychological Evaluation of Bariatric Patients" is a narrative review about personality inventories in pre-surgical assessment.

I have one issue that the authors might consider. Although the text is well-written and it is very clear, the authors need to take more traditional approach in reporting. After the introduction it might be stated rational for this review. Then, they state the current practice in assessments. After, they need to clearly state how they selected the included inventories. For, there are several other inventories not included, like the NEOPI. Then, they are concluding.
