Adolescent GYN Care:  Parents often wonder when the right time to bring their teenager to the gynecologist is.  The answer is before your adolescent chooses to become sexually active, age 21, or if there are any concerns about her menstrual cycle.  The first visit for an adolescent is typically a visit to help your adolescent feel comfortable at our office as a resource and offer age-appropriate counseling.  We will assess where your teenager is at and offer counseling or treatment for their concerns.  We will want to speak your adolescent with you to hear your concerns and alone so we can address their concerns.  We want your adolescent or teenager to feel comfortable with us so that they can come to us with any concerns they may have in the future.  We work very hard to help our teenagers have a positive experience at the GYN and provide very sensitive care to this age group of women.
