Teen to Transition

Teen Years: As your child grows up they should become increasingly independent and will begin to need some private time with their physician to develop trust in discussing confidential issues.  This will encourage your teens to be more independent and responsible for their health care as they transition into adulthood. However, this confidentiality will be broken if your teen is doing anything to hurt themselves or others.

Transition to Adult Care: As long as your child comes annually for check ups we are happy to care for them until they graduate from college or move out of the area.  When they are ready to move into an adult practice we will help facilitate their transition.
