We understand the pressures and challenges that teenagers face. We are committed to asking the hard questions of them and making our conversations relevant to the changes they are experiencing.

We schedule visits for our soon-to-be young adults to have their own time with the doctor, but begin visits with parents and children together. We recognize that parents need to be involved and present too.

We make sure our tweens and teens can tell their own illness story when they're sick, and we encourage them to practice sharing health information when they come for wellness visits. Our emerging young adults have access to an extensive collection of nutrition resources as well as ideas for balancing media use and physical activity.

We encourage our tech-savvy teens to communicate directly with the doctor using the internet and many teens appreciate our practices' use of social media. Yes, we are on Facebook and Twitter, and we love it when our patients and their parents LIKE and FOLLOW us.
