Treating Adolescents and Young Adults in Irvine and Costa Mesa
You may not consider your teenager or young adult as a child, but they are. Pediatrics is not just for small children. A pediatrician also delivers comprehensive care for adolescents, teenagers and young adults. The teen years are a special time in their lives with special medical needs and emotional stresses that often require help from trained professionals.
The years from age 12 to 21 represent a period of rapid growth, dramatic physical changes and hormonal issues and a discovery of self. For many teens and their families, it can also be a confusing period because they are pulled in so many different directions. That’s why we do everything possible to teach them how to prevent disease and learn to practice healthy behaviors. Our services include:
- Sports and school physicals
- Sports injuries
- Acne treatment and other skin condition treatments
- Help with drug/alcohol problems
- Nutritional counceling for eating disorders and obesity
- STDs, birth control and pregnancy prevention
- Coping with domestic and interpersonal violence
- Immunization to protect against diseases
