Adolescent Health Care

At Hope Health Family Practice we provide comprehensive primary care services to adolescents.   Working with adolescents is one of the most rewarding aspects of our practice.  We recognize the journey to independence that each adolescent is on and strive to empower them in learning about and caring for their own health.

Our services for adolescents include:

  • Assessment and management of acute illnesses
  • Assessment and management of chronic illnesses and referral to specialists as necessary

  • Issues surrounding puberty such as hygiene, acne, menstruation and body image
  • Reproductive health services to include Gynecological care for infections or other concerns, birth control counseling and management and sexually transmitted infection evaluation, testing and treatment
  • Immunizations such as diptheria/tetanus boosters,  Gardasil (HPV) and meningitis
  • Sports physicals and injury management
