Adolescent care brings its own challenges. Neither children nor adults, teens face many of the healthcare issues of both. Teens need support to establish positive health habits.
Adolescent Health Care
Often, teens need someone besides a parent or peer to talk with about sensitive issues. Our pediatricians are ready to talk to you on the many issues that affect your adolescent:
- Parent-teen Communication
- Peer pressure
- Emotional development
- Substance abuse
- Puberty and Sexual Development
- Safety and High-Risk Behavior
Athletics are a wonderful way for your teen to get exercise and participate in a team. Beginning in Junior High School, many school sports require a physical to participate. We can add on a sports physical to your child’s annual wellness visit upon request. The pediatrician will review your child’s health and physical fitness to ensure they are ready to participate in the sport.
Northwest Arkansas Pediatrics provides age-appropriate vaccines for teens.
