Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology
For many girls, their first visit to the gynecologist is when they finally are comfortable discussing their questions about puberty, development, reproductive health and sexuality. It’s also a perfect time to educate them about when a pelvic or breast exam should be performed.
Our practice has compassion regarding teens and young women’s issues, and offers counseling about abstinence and methods to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection. If pregnancy occurs, we also provides specialized obstetrical care dedicated to meeting the unique needs and concerns of pregnant adolescents. OUr physicians also work closely with referring physicians and pediatric specialty caregivers to coordinate care for girls with medical or developmental issues which can impact their reproductive health.
