Adolescent Care

Adolescent care at Barrett Hospital & HealthCare addresses the physical, emotional and social changes, and general care issues that children, teens and young adults from ages 10 to 18 normally encounter.


Adolescent is a time unlike any other period of growth and change. For you and your child, adolescence presents unique health challenges that include their physical development, nutrition, body image and emotional well-being. We know that teens years can be difficult. Kids go through many physical, social and emotional changes during this time. Our family providers can help teens and young adults manage all the issues they may face, such as:

  • Physical development and anxiety related to male and female puberty

  • Menstrual concerns 

  • Weight and eating disorders assessment, including anorexia and bulimia

  • Anxiety and bullying

  • Depression and other mental health issues

  • The effects of chronic illness on teen development

  • Developmental and learning disorders

  • Relationship development

  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)​

  • Contraception

  • Vaccines needed prior to college

Vaccinations can save your child’s life. They protect children from serious illness such as loss of limb, paralysis of limb, convulsions, brain damage, and even death. Be sure he or she is up to date on all vaccinations. These can also be addressed at your child’s well-child visit. Talk to one of our primary care providers about the necessary vaccinations your child needs at each age. 

Stay on track with vaccinations and more by making sure your child has a yearly well-child visit with his or her primary care provider. Well-child visits involve a head-to-toe examination as well as essential screenings and tests. 

During a well-child checkup, your child might be screened for: 

  • Anemia and lead poisoning 

  • Developmental delays

  • Current immunizations

  • Hip dysplasia 

  • Evaluation of fine and gross motor skills 

  • Vision 


The Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends asking to have a sports physical included when scheduling your child's Well-child visit. Along with your child’s school-based sports programs, activities like snowboarding, skiing, jogging, climbing, etc. are also a good reason to have a provider complete a thorough exam of your child. Plus, you get the added bonus of asking for a sports physical to be completed at the same time as the Well-child visit so your child is ready for the upcoming season.
