Adolescent Medicine

This can be a challenging time for young men and women. They need an understanding ear and a doctor they can trust.

The hardest time of your life.

The Teen Years

Helping a son or daughter through adolescence might be one of the most challenging things you undertake as a parent. But it’s important to think back on that time and remember how much harder it was to go through it yourself: The physical changes of puberty, intense social predicaments and the demands of school, sports and extracurricular activities – all exacerbated by everything from little problems like acne to big issues like drug, alcohol and tobacco pressure from friends. When you take all of those stresses and try to balance and manage it all with the growing, immature brain of a teen, trouble is almost inevitable.

From Child to Adult

It really is a trying time for any teen – and as a parent you have to face a lot of it with them. Teens and adolescents need an understanding ear and a doctor they can trust. Your INTEGRIS Family Care physician can be just that for your son or daughter. Your doctor understands how this transformational period affects everything in your child’s life – from the physical changes of puberty to the emotional, mental and behavioral issues that can arise with new hormones. Best of all, they also know how to help both you and your teen get through it.
