Fostering Independence

We take the time to answer any and all questions that you have regarding your teen’s well being so that both you and your teen understand the importance of choosing a healthy lifestyle that includes good nutrition, proper exercise, and safety measures.  Our goal is to teach adolescents how to take responsibility for their own health and wellness. The foundation for that transition is a strong relationship with their health care provider.
