Philosophy of Care
Teenagers are often in need of more support than we consider. There are so many changes and pressures that these young beings are navigating that often having the support of a health care professional, and someone outside the home to discuss health concerns with becomes paramount. Our doctors approach with teens is to really listen, allow them to be heard and take their concerns and questions seriously.
