Moving through the pre-teen and teen years is an exciting and often challenging time for both parents and teens. Many physical, social and emotional changes take place during this time. Raleigh Pediatric Associates is happy to partner with your family to face these changes and strive to keep your teen healthy both mentally and physically.
One of the best ways to accomplish this goal is by having an annual routine well exam. This visit allows the pediatrician to not only assess the teen’s physical health but screen for any emotional concerns or risky behaviors that could affect their health now or in the future. A comprehensive exam can be used for sports or camp clearance, but also provides a much broader and better picture of the child’s actual well-being.
