Ascension pediatric-trained adolescent medicine doctors help teens with healthy development and treat medical concerns specific to this age group.
About Adolescent Medicine
Our doctors understand the delicate balance of hormones, emotions, and how to minimize health risks. They are good listeners and can diagnose the root source of common medical symptoms such as headaches, acne, and abdominal pain.
These specialists care for all types of childhood illnesses and conditions and help your teen transition into young adulthood. Some of these doctors also specialize in adolescent gynecology and provide compassionate gynecologic care for menstrual issues, STDs, and if needed family planning. If your teen has a medical condition that is limiting activities and school performance, ask your Ascension primary care doctor about healthcare services personalized for your child.
