Adolescence is a complicated time for young people as they transition from children to adults. An adolescent medicine specialist is a physician who has additional years of subspecialized training in treating preteens, teens and young adults. Rapid and intense changes in the brain and body take place during adolescence, and doctors in this specialty have focused their efforts on understanding how best to help young people with their medical needs. Just like neonatologists focus on infants and geriatricians work with the elderly, adolescent medicine is age-specific, not condition-specific.
Patients and families should allow extra time when arriving for appointments. Hours: Regular Hours: Monday - Thursday, a. Friday a.
