Teens and young adults need to go to the doctor even when they are healthy. The teen years are important in adopting and maintaining healthy habits, avoiding health damaging behaviors, and preventing disease.

When you consider that the teen years are a period of intense growth, physically, socially, and mentally it's understandable that it's also a time full of questions and concerns. Adolescents and young adults include age 10-24 years. 

What Is a Well Visit?

The annual well visit is more than a physical exam. It is a time for you and your doctor to talk about anything that is troubling either of you. Although you might be embarrassed or afraid to ask, a doctor has the knowledge to answer all of your health questions on all topics.

Call your doctor and schedule a well visit.
