When children grow into adolescents they should continue to have routine examinations done by their pediatrician or family medicine physician in order to stay healthy. It is also important for them to visit their doctor when they are not feeling well in the event they are experiencing a common pediatric illness.
While adolescents’ lives are busier and more complex, they can and do develop health issues that take time to identify and treat appropriately. Teenagers are not children, but not yet adults. The challenging health issues they face require expert diagnoses and treatment.
The Division of Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital, led by a board-certified pediatrician who is also certified in Adolescent Medicine by the American Board of Pediatrics, cares for young women and men between the ages of 10 and 21. Common problems treated include concerns about development during puberty, weight issues, menstrual irregularities, and acne. Assessments for behavioral issues such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obesity are also provided. Specialists work closely with other specialty divisions within The Children’s Hospital, particularly the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology to treat health concerns and conditions such as amenorrhea, thyroid disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS.)
Patients are seen on the third floor of the Medical Office Building, easily accessible from the elevators found in the lobby of Saint Peter’s University Hospital. Consultations are also available at the Saint Peter’s pediatric satellite facility located on Oak Tree Road in Edison.
