Adolescent Medicine/Outpatient Services

The Adolescent Medicine Program provides clinical care for adolescents with acute and chronic illnesses and other health care maintenance needs. Consultations are available by phone or appointment.

Adolescent Medicine

Adolescents with physical and/or emotional issues that may have been difficult for a primary care provider to diagnose are treated through our adolescent consultation service. Our board-certified adolescent medicine specialists are trained to identify the psychological causes that often manifest themselves as somatic (physical) symptoms. Patients will be asked to complete a questionnaire prior to their initial visit to the Samuelson Children's Hospital. The specialist will then review the patient’s medical history, meet with the patient and his or her parents together and individually, examine the adolescent, and provide an assessment and plan. A report is forwarded to the patient's primary care physician.

Family-Centered Care

Depending on the nature of the illness, your child may need only one consultation with the adolescent medicine specialist or may become a long-term patient. Your family will benefit from a very personal approach to care that is similar to what you can expect when you visit a physician at a private practice. The patient is typically treated by the same physician, as this continuity of care contributes to more positive health care outcomes. Parents have an important role in the management of their children's health, and we value them as members of our health care team.
