Well Child Care
Preventative Medicine

For those parents who think their teen is living in a different world (and those teens who think their parents don’t understand anything), you are right!  We work to bring those two worlds together.  Most teen visits will be conducted in the teen clinic, which has its own entrance and hip decor, and will often include a time for teenagers to confidentially talk alone with their doctor.  This is to help encourage teens to take responsibility for their health and to create an environment where they feel safe to ask questions. There are some issues that may need to be shared with parents for your teen’s safety, but in general, what is shared is confidential.  Our goal is to help teens choose ways to be safe, think independently, and build good relationships with family and peers.


Of note, after age 18, health information cannot be shared with parents unless you sign a release form.
