Adolescent Medicine

Adolescent Medicine focuses on the care of patients in the adolescent period of development. This period begins at puberty and extends until age 24. Our Adolescent Medicine providers see patients for sick and well visits. In addition to these visits, our Adolescent Medicine Providers treat eating disorders, mood changes, depression, anxiety, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorders), ADHD (Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorders), and questions related to sexual identity and reproductive health. Seeing an Adolescent Medicine Provider is a great way for patients to transition from childhood, where parents control the child’s healthcare, to adulthood, where the patient manages their own health and well-being. Appropriate healthcare during adolescent years sets the foundation for a healthy adult. Our Adolescent Medicine Providers understand and are here to help.
