Adolescent Care

Adolescent health encompasses an essential transition from childhood to adulthood.  During this transition, adolescents establish patterns of behavior and make lifestyle choices that affect both their current and future health.  It is our goal as your Family Medicine Provider to assist the adolescent during this transition phase by offering education, medical support and resources.  Some important areas to address are:

  • General physical health & nutrition: physicals, immunizations, well child examinations, treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, assessment and treatment of eating disorders and nutritional concerns.
  • Mental health & substance abuse: coping skills, stress management, drug and alcohol usage education
  • Sexual health: pubertal development, STDs and HIV education, contraception, menstrual health
  • Dermatologic health: acne, skin conditions, warts, eczema, burns, psoriasis
  • ADD/ ADHD: mental and emotional well-being, severity, prevalence, difficulty learning, understanding, or paying attention, medication

Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Flu, bronchitis, upper respiratory infection
  • HPV test for adolescent women
