Teens do still need annual well exams. These checkups are important to ensure proper physical growth, maintain immunizations, and address common concerns such as acne, weight issues and sexuality. The well appointment also serves as an opportunity to address difficult issues that are common for this age group. Often, teens struggle with issues of self-esteem, peer pressure, stress and depression. Additionally, many face choices about drinking, smoking, drugs and sexual activity. The decisions and choices made during adolescence can impact a child for a lifetime.

Teenage years can be tough. We are here to help. Teen years are a good time to begin learning about healthcare. We believe teens should begin taking a role in the whole process during this time. Appointments will be primarily with the patient only. The teen appointment can be in-depth, is often lengthy and confidentiality guidelines apply.
