The specialty of adolescent medicine has developed in response to the unique health care needs of adolescents. Knowledge of the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social changes that adolescents undergo, as well as the disease processes that occur during adolescence, is vital when caring for patients in this age group. Typical concerns for adolescents that we see include reproductive health, depression, anxiety and eating disorders.
