Adolescent Medicine

Department Main Image


Adolescence is a time of intense growth – not only physically but emotionally and intellectually. We are specially trained in caring for the range of medical, social, emotional, sexual, educational and nutritional concerns that are common in individuals from puberty through 23 years of age.

Specialized care.

Our care focuses on respecting individuality, supporting physical and emotional growth and development, and educating and empowering teens to ultimately take ownership of their healthcare and life decisions.

Common health issues we treat include:

  • Acne
  • Eating disorders
  • Menstrual problems
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Substance abuse

We also help manage adolescent issues related to chronic medical conditions.
