Adolescent and Young Adult Health Medicine
The Division of Adolescent Medicine provides expertise in evaluation, diagnosis and treatment for adolescents and young adults. This program provides comprehensive consultative services for individuals between 12 and 23 years of age, although we remain flexible if there is an adolescent issue that occurs in a patient outside that age range.
Evaluation by our consultative care team begins with an initial evaluation by an Adolescent Medicine physician who may subsequently refer the patient to additional team members including:
- Child psychiatrists
- Clinical pharmacologists
- Mental health therapists
- Registered dietitians
- Other allied health professionals
Our expert clinical staff members have extensive experience treating adolescents and young adults and will design a treatment plan to match the unique needs of each individual patient and their families.
Adolescent Issues Prompting Referral:
Some issues that may occur in adolescents and young adults can be difficult for providers not specifically trained in adolescent medicine to address fully in their offices.
