Teens go through many physical and mental changes as they move toward becoming adults. As they grow, their responsibility for their own health also grows. Many young people participate in risky behaviors or develop unhealthy habits during this time. Our team is here to help.
About our Adolescent Medicine Clinic
We support teens by talking about their health with them, and their parents or guardians. Because teens may be embarrassed to have an exam or talk about some things in front of their parents, we give all teens a chance to be seen privately.
In order to best care for your teen, we offer confidential services. This means we will only share what happens in these visits if the teen says it is okay or if someone is in danger.
