Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine

When choosing a doctor for your teen or young adult, you have a lot to consider. For young people 13 and up, health care starts to look a little different—teens have unique needs during these important years. And as a parent, you want to get expert advice. You want your child to have the right support as they grow up into a happy, healthy adult.
