Teen healthcare is important. The physical, mental and emotional well-being of your teen is important for his or her development during a time when many changes are taking place. Not only are their bodies going through a number of changes, like growth spurts and puberty, but new lifestyle changes and pressures also begin to occur during one’s teen years as they gain more responsibilities and independence. These changes and added pressures can impact one’s physical, emotional and psychological health, as well as set the stage for a teen’s outcome as an adult. Some of life’s most important decisions are made during one’s teenage years, particularly when it comes to their health and wellness.
Our practice is equipped to attend to all of our patients’ needs from infancy through adolescence, including a full range of teen healthcare services. Common areas of concerns for our teen patients are nutrition, sports, injuries, mental health, puberty, sexuality and adjusting to academic and social pressures. Teens also may need some immunizations to keep them healthy and protect them from certain illnesses and diseases. Our physicians regularly manage teen healthcare by providing a safe, neutral setting where teens can feel comfortable asking the questions they need answers to and receiving advice to keep them healthy and strong into adulthood.
