Adolescence is an important time in your child’s life. It’s a period of physical, emotional and social changes. It’s also a time when the right guidance and support can make all the difference in their health and well-being. At Providence, we’re here for your adolescents and for you. We can help make what is often a challenging time easier and healthier.
At Providence, we understand that trust and communication are key to establishing strong relationships. We aim to be approachable and straightforward, allowing teenagers to feel comfortable with sharing their concerns and partnering with us to achieve the best possible care.
Obviously no two children are alike. We address each patient’s unique needs to help them on their path toward a healthy and robust adulthood.
This can include everything from making sure they receive their recommended immunizations to coaching them on how to manage a chronic condition or helping them understand the importance of healthy habits and behaviors.
Our adolescent medicine doctors at Providence are specially trained to work with preteens through young adults with empathy, compassion and understanding.
