Adolescent Health

Adolescent Health in Cumberland, RI

Adolescent Health focuses on the physical, psychological, social, and sexual development of adolescents aged 12 to 21 years versus pediatric medicine with a focus on children up to the age of 18.  

What Is Adolescent Health?

 Adolescents can present unique medical and behavioral issues, including chronic, acute, and preventive problems such as found in,

  • Abnormalities in growth/development
  • Vision/Hearing disorders
  • Disabilities in learning processes
  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Allergies
  • Acne
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse
  • Psychosocial problems
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Contraception/pregnancy/sexual identity issues
  • The management of chronic diseases like diabetes

Your child can expect to discuss their medical, physical, and mental history, current health status, and medicines taken. Our doctors may do a physical exam and order lab tests and X-rays. 

While we talk with your adolescent, we can never stress confidentiality enough with them. Emphasizing confidentiality in our talks with your adolescent eases conversation between us and them.

We are here to help and support you and your child. This specialized care stresses to your adolescent the importance of taking responsibility for their health. We prescribe medications as needed. 

We may discuss with you things such as insurance topics, Social Security Disability, our available community resources, or guardianship guidelines for adult children with disabilities.
