Young adults and teenagers have their own unique health needs. Their changing and growing bodies bring up new questions and might make them feel out of place at a pediatrician's office. This is not a concern at Novant Health Family Physicians Gastonia. Since we care for patients of all ages, young adults are comfortable in our office, seeing the providers they have come to know in a familiar environment.
We encourage parents and caregivers to remain involved in their teenager's medical care. However, to ensure patient privacy, there might be a time you are asked to step out of the room so your young adult can talk privately with the provider. Please understand this is a common office request and will give your child a chance to ask questions he or she may have.
