Adolescent Medicine

Children between the ages of 10 and 21 have unique health care needs. While we often refer to adolescents as young adults, medically speaking, they are not little adults. Nor are they simply big children.

Our team of specialists, which includes the only board-certified adolescent medicine physician in the greater Kansas City area, understands the changing physical, developmental and psychosocial needs of children in this age range.
